Batman Does Not Approve
So, I decided to finally take my twelve year old brother to see Dark Knight at the dollar theater because he's been bugging me about the Joker and he does not understand why he can't see all the things his big sister has been writing...-.-. Though I'm kind of relieved he thought that picture he saw on my screen while I was surfing deviantart was Harvey and the Joker. I think Batman and Joker would have scarred him even more.
So....where was I....oh yeah, seeing Dark Knight at the dollar theater with my little brother. So, only about twenty people in the theater since it was a matinee and both of us giggled and cackled all the way through the film, I was wearing my Joker t-shirt. I was in front on the way out of the theater and stopped dead in my tracks, turned on my heel to the small mass of people behind me and said.
"Batman's outside the theater."
No kidding, the guy was standing all stony like outside the door waiting for us all to walk out with a theater employee nametag that read Batman in full Batman regalia. So I covered my shirt up with my jacket and my brother tells me later that he was shaking he didn't know what to do. The guy not only acted like Batman, he had the rasp. So I fumbled and giggled nervously trying to find the camera on my phone because David wanted a photo with him. I had to drop my jacket to take it and suddenly he said.
"Just so you know, I really don't approve of the shirt."
In all honesty I stared at him like a deer in headlights for about five seconds and then with at least two other nerdy theater employees giggling on hand I started saying.
"I swear, I'm a good girl. I swear!"
He simply nodded and I grabbed David. Then grinned like the Joker girl I am and said. "Joker rules!" And dragged my brother after me at top speed cackling. I'm not making this up.
So, I called Knives, immediately. Telling her everything and she kept telling me I should have hung all over him and acted like the Joker like a proper fangirl. But I really loved the way he said 'I don't approve'. So I went back to look for him, but he was not in the theater, I was all sad and then I saw him while we were leaving the mall. He was just walking around outside in the dark and I ran up to him, phone in hand.
And quite calmly said. "I'm part of a Batman/Joker community, can you please tell them you don't approve?"
And I think he looked puzzled. "What does the community concern?"
I smiled, I mean grinned like a fool again. "I think it's pretty self explanatory."
And he said this with great gusto just for all of you Batman/Joker fans.
