Not Batting For This One

| Related | May 7, 2013

(Both of my parents and I enter the corridor leading to our movie theater. Suddenly a bat flies past down an intersecting corridor, going back and forth.)

Mom: “Oh, god! I can’t get past! THERE’S A BAT!”

Me: “Mom, just run past when it’s at the other end of the hall.”

Mom: “I CAN’T! It’s going to fly into my hair!”

Me: “That’s a myth; they don’t aim for your hair.”

Mom: “YES THEY DO! Don’t lie to me!”

(Dad laughs, and we finally encourage my mom to run across. She screams the whole time. She continues screaming as she runs up to a random movie theater patron.)

Mom: “THERE IS A BAT OUT THERE! DID YOU HEAR THAT SCREAMING? THAT WAS ME!”
