Tonight, I introduced Jeremy to West Side Story, albeit only one hour of the 2 hour and 45 minute movie. We jumped in just before the “When You’re a Jet” dance sequence and Jeremy was immediately interested. Shortly after came the scene when Tony and Maria see each other across the dance floor, lock eyes and walk toward each other mesmerized. I tell Jeremy, “That’s what happens when it’s Love at First Sight.”
“What does that mean?” he asks.
“It means they loved each other right away, without even really knowing each other.”
As if on cue, Tony and Maria kiss, which Jeremy sees and then spins around towards me again.
“Well I don’t want to fall in love at first sight because I don’t want to smooch that quick.”
