Do you remember your first time?

Watching Grease, I mean. I remember it quite clearly. I was 11 years old, and it was loaned to me by a friend. That evening, (luckily a Friday), I started watching this movie, and I was enchanted by it immediately. Halfway through though, my father came in, and told me to switch off the video, because he wanted to watch the news. (back in those days, we only had 1 tv in our house). I had gotten to the part where Danny was in the grey outfit trying out for track. I couldn't sleep that night, I kept thinking and thinking about this movie, and counting the minutes for morning to continue watching it. At 8am I was already in front of the tv watching the rest of Grease. Over that weekend, I watched this movie countless times, and when my friend asked me if I had watched it on Monday, I said no, so that I could keep it and watch it some more. I kept this video for three whole weeks, watching it over and over again. And I only gave it back, when my mother promised to buy it for me. Since then, I have watched Grease over 60 times! I even went to watch it at the cinema when it came out again in 1998! I still can't believe that a movie that's 30 years old can still be a favourite with so many, and yet, everytime I watch it, I feel like that 11 year old girl again, who passed on 2 sunday afternoon outings, just to stay home and watch Grease again. Do you remember the first time that you have watched this movie?

Oh! yes do I remember,I was in my teens about 15 year old and that day a friend asked me to go to the movies.I had heard it on the radio that grease was comming out at the movies.So we went,there was so many peoples in the theater to watch that movie, I said to my self if there's alote of peoples, that means it will be good.Boy I loved that movie,I even went back three time to see it again , but not with the same friend.You know Olivia Newton-John when I was 17 years old I looked like her ,she seemed so sweet at the beginning and at the end a bit less,but that was fun about watching that movie.I will never forget GREASE.

The first tiime I watched Grease was at my cousins house. It was her birthday and she had a sleep over. I had never heard of Grease and was disappointed when it started and all of it was illustrated. I thought it was a cartoon!! I was 13years old and so over cartoons. I closed my eyes to fall asleep and heard the opening music stop. I opened my eyes and forgot about how tired I was! I loved the movie, and all the characters and the songs they sang and the clothes they wore. It was so great to me. My mom bought me the soundtrack. She promised but never did buy me the movie. So a few years later after I started my first job, I walked to the video store in the mall and bought it myself!!. I love grease and hope someday my daughter will too so we can drive my husband nuts and watch it all day!!!
