My Dad is 'Batman'
NO, my father is not Adam West! And no, my Dad is not really Batman!
But when I was in Kindergarten the Batman show was very popular. I remember watching the show one evening and my parents telling me that 'Dad was BATMAN'. I don't remember which one to blame, my dear Mother or dear Father, for telling me this 'Tall Tale.' But I do remember being very gullible and believing it! I didn't even think to question it! WOW, MY DAD WAS BATMAN! I remember going to school and telling all my friends, teachers - and bus driver. As you can imagine nobody believed me. I was in tears when nobody believed me. The teacher even told me that she didn't believe me! Well when I got home I was indeed going to straighten this out. I ask my parents again, was my dad really Batman? They said yes. Well, if they said yes it had to be true, and nobody was going to tell me differently! I don't know how long I believed it, -- but I did, I really did!
Yes, I was very gullible kid growing up. I believed that M&M only came in the color brown, because my Brother Matt was in charge of sharing the bag of M&M candy with me. I also believe my dearest Brother when he said he needed me to 'test' his bike ramp out - which consisted of a sheet of plywood and cynder blocks. He told me he needed to watch so that he could fix the ramp for later use. Yes, Yes, Yes I was not the sharpest knife in the drawer!
Well today is my BATMAN's Birthday! Happy Birthday Batman!
