Kids Have Standards
I was wearing a Batman shirt yesterday. It has the old-school logo on it.
Evan, my 9 year old neighbor-kid rolled up on his bike and asked, “You like Batman?”
“Yeah, I do. He’s a solid dude, you?” I replied. In truth, I don’t know anything about super heroes.
“No. In the cartoons they draw him with long pointy ears,” he said.
“Yeah but he’s a super hero and he’s strong and stuff…a good guy.”
Evan looked off in the distance. “Terrible,” he declared and rode away.
Was he talking about me or Batman?
