“You’re the one that I want …”


Today’s simple pleasure was the Monday drive to work of all things!

Almost to work and “You’re the one that I want” from Grease came on the radio.

I cranked that song up and with the window down belted out Olivia Newton Johns part.

I LOVE the movie Grease!  I have it on DVD, and it’s one of those movies that if I stumble upon it on TV, I have to stop down and watch it.

I’m about to digress:

Why do we DO that?  Why do we watch a favorite film on TV with commercials when we could just pop in the DVD having been reminded how much we love said movie?

Done digressing.

First time I saw Grease was with no sound (we couldn’t afford the ear plugs) – on an airplane flying from India back to England.  It wasn’t even playing in our cabin!

I was perched on my seat craning my neck to catch glimpses of leather jackets and poodle skirts in the next cabin.  I was so excited though, in spite of the viewing conditions.

Have to say I’m more a ‘head band-poodle skirt Sandy’ girl – I wouldn’t wear those pants she had to be sewn into (It’s true!  She was!  Google it).  I don’t like attracting too much attention to myself.

If I wear earrings, I can’t wear a necklace and vice versa.  I will get a little daring sometimes and wear small earrings with a bracelet (Shocking!)  Oh, and I NEVER wear gold.

Ditto on the make up.  A mascara swipe – rice powder and lipstick, I’m done.  I feel like a French whore when I have eyeliner on for a big night out.  (she types this while trying to remember the last time that actually was).

So I keep a low profile, but as for singing at the top of my lungs as other cars drive by, I’m in!  “It’s electrifying!”
