Real Life Does Not Imitate Movies, Apparently

The kids watched High School Musical 2 today, as part of their “Yay, we’re done with school for the year!” celebration. If you’ve seen that particular strain of movies, you know that high schoolers randomly break into song–even if they’re playing baseball.

So tonight we went to a real baseball game.  With real high schoolers.

Afterwards, both girls, at separate times, told me the game would have been much more fun if the players had danced and sang sometime during the game.  And, “the game was a lot longer in real life than it was in the movie.”

I wonder at what point they will realize how much real life isn’t like movies.
