High School Musical for Manly Males
Last night, Aaron was going to be at the church working on one of his great videos for the services this weekend.
No big deal.
I've only been counting down the days for High School Musical 2's debut for about....a year now.
I had big plans to watch it.
Got the kids in bed...
Put the pj's on...
And then I remembered...
I can't watch this movie this late at night.
When the songs come on, I have to play it loud...like run it through the Bose speakers loud.
This will wake the children.
So I just read another four chapters in my Golden Compass book.
Then, I called Aaron to tell him goodnight.
He said, "Did you watch High School Musical?"
I said, "No."
Then he said something that almost made me drop the phone...but will endear that man to me for the rest of my days. He said...
"Good. I want to watch it too."
He said that.
I stammered back, "Uh...I'm not sure you should tell many people what you just said."
He answered, "I don't care who knows. I like High School Musical and I liked Hairspray."
Those words were spoken with force and confidence.
It made me a little dizzy and hot. I wanted to kiss him.
I'm going to custom order him a bumper sticker that says, "Real Men Love Musicals."
He's such a stud.
So secure in his man-ness.
I've decided that if you are a male...and you are sick of having to pretend like you don't want to see High School Musical...or Hairspray...then we are declaring the Hendrick House a safe haven for all
males who are closet musical lovers.
If that's you...
Then you're invited to come over tonight after the Saturday night service and watch High School Musical 2 with us.
You don't have to explain yourself.
You don't have to pretend it's stupid, but secretly love it.
We won't make fun of you.
We will love you.
