Speaking of Batman, Here’s a Video of Batman Getting Beaten Up in Las Vegas
Batman! …And now that we’ve gotten your attention, it seems to have been a very bad week for the Dark Knight Defender, the Caped Crusader, etc. First, “Batman” was arrested in Michigan. And now, here’s video footage of a different “Batman” getting his ass kicked in Las Vegas.
As we can see, this particular Batman in question is a street-performer of some kind, who encounters a possibly almost definitely drunk heckler on the sidewalk in Vegas. The fight starts out slowly, in the boring way that so many dude-on-dude fights start, with lots of pointless taunting. But then “Batman” makes the mistake of defiantly fluffing out his cape. And then a traffic cone is brought into play. And then Batman gets his ass kicked.
Though the fight ends quickly, the one thing that we will always recall is the plaintive lonely plea of a child, crying out the following word — “Batman?” — as her innocence is shattered forever upon seeing a fake Batman getting a beat-down from some random dude. …But don’t worry, Virginia — there truly is a Batman. As long as you believe in him in your heart, then he is real.
Anyway, the fight ends, the little girl yells out in fear, the police show up, blah blah. Of course, the police only arrive because they must chase Batman — they’re forced to, because he’s the hero that we deserve, but not the one we need right now; he’s our lonely defender, our Dark Knight, and anyway okay we made these same jokes already today.

Try something today. Count how many times someone brings up some sort of mental illness in normal conversation. Add that number up and tell me it doesn’t strike you as kind of weird how many normal people walk around with the belief that there is something wrong with them.
She assumed it was jewelry. Every year he gets her a charm for her gold chain or a pair of dangly earrings.
Fall if you will, but rise you must.
You may lose what would have been the joy of the experience had you not been so focused on some fabricated idea or unrealistic expectation you had of how it was going to turn out.
