I never touch spirits. Have you some milk?

A strange moment of zen this weekend.

I was driving the kids downstate for a young cousin's birthday. In the back seat my oldest daughter and son were screwing around with the laptop she got for graduation and for high school. They were watching the original batman show on DVD.

We were going through a small town that was having some sort of festival. From the back of the car we heard the theme from the start of the show ("Atomic batteries to speed. Turbines to power. Nanananananananaa...")

My middle daughter who is sitting next to me in the front seat goes "there's the batmobile."

I said "what the heck do you mean batmobile?" and turned to look at what she was pointing at.

We saw this...
There was a ton of traffic and by the time I got the car turned around to get back into town to see if we'd had a shared hallucination, the batmobile was gone.

Holy now you see it, now you don't!

It could've only been better if we got to ride in the batmobile.

Atomic batteries to speed. Turbines to power

Hell with riding it, imagine getting to pick the kids up in that thing, go out on the town with the missus. You'd be as cool as Adam West.

arkonbey-

D'oh. Your quote is the correct quote.

randal-

Nobody can be as cool as Adam West. I've tried. I paused a lot in the middle of sentences like West. It didn't help.

Batman moves fast. You're lucky you got to see the car at all.

That is pretty dang cool. This is a good state for a bat cave.

I tried to leave a witty comment about your batmobile sighting but blogger wouldn't let me :(
Now I forgot what I was gonna say.

Ok, maybe this:
Will the Wormer's see the Batmobile again?
Stay tuned...
same bat time
same bat channel

Pop-

That's what we were thinking...

We were late to the birthday party because of this.

Do you know how stupid it sounds to say "I'm sorry we're late but we were looking for the batmobile?"

Don-

I've got a batcave under my house.

Liberality-

Nicely done! I could hear that the announcer guy's voice as I read that.
