Batman and I

“One August day an eight-year old and his mum are picking blackberries, she is unaware her son is a Superhero and wearing his costume beneath his ordinary clothes. I was expecting a crime wave not a heat wave and as I sank into a lethargic state of heat exhaustion I began to have doubts about said costume.”                                                               That was an exert from an old blog Hawkboy  It was Batman’s 80th birthday last week which triggered the memory of the post. Batman was an old chum of mine when I was playing superheroes back in the day and we had quite a bit in common. I built my own Batmobile and although I was never paid, I was a Batman look alike for a while.

 

I had a den in the woods, den/cave lets not get picky. We both abhorred injustice, okay I didn’t catch the high profile criminals like he did but I did punch Micky Jackson on the nose when he stole Patricia’s packet of Smarties And of course the opposite sex found us both attractive, although I never got to screw Catwoman I don’t recall ever losing a game of Kiss and Catch 😉 There was a party last week for Batty at the Anaheim Convention Center No one invited me 😦 After all those years of watching Batman  reading Batman and listening to my Batman Soundtrack Album you would think I might have got an invite?

    Nice one Charlie. Unfortunately, the woods are been transformed into cities. No more caves for such fun.

    Happy 80th Batman! I love that you had a secret Batcave in the woods, while you fought against the injustice (aka Smarties theft) in the world.x

    Ahhh, to be a boy! 😀
    That sounds like a lot of fun you had, Charlie. I don’t remember any of the boys I knew playing bat cave superheroes – or any superheroes come to think of it… more the shame. I know I would have gotten such a ‘tickle’ out of that…
    Go Batman!!! I guess he’ll be around for many a decade, Charlie?!
