For my twelfth birthday Mom, Dad, Grandma and I drove to New Jersey to a restaurant called Medieval Times. It’s a place where you use your hands to eat and eat. We ate soup and chicken and drank Coke and ate birthday cake. We saw a king, queen, knights and jousting. For my thirteenth birthday we went to a New Hampshire theater. We saw “Little Shop of Horrors”. The actors were good. I have the actors’ signatures. I wonder what we will do for my fourteenth birthday…
A month and a half after Batman ate the Joker cookie and fell asleep, thousands of girls went to the mansion to kiss him. Nothing happened. Girls came from everywhere: Germany, Belgium, France, England, Ireland, Russia and China. Nothing happened. All the gorgeous girls went home empty handed.
But finally a girl from Scotland came. Her name was Elizabeth. Her brother Scott came with her. When Elizabeth kissed Batman, Elizabeth fell to the floor asleep and Batman began to stretch and yawn.
"What happened?! What's today's date?" Batman asked.
The butler said, "Today's is Valentine's Day 2009, sir. You ate the Joker's magic cookie and fell asleep for a month and a half. You needed true love's first kiss to wake up."
"Well, where is she?" asked Batman.
"Behind you, sir," replied the butler.
Everyone looked behind Batman. There was no woman there. There was a frog.
Scott, Elizabeth's brother, was crying. He picked up the frog and held it in his hands. While he was crying, the frog began to change back into the girl. Reddish hair began to poke out of the frog's head. Then at once she was human again.
Batman, Elizabeth and Scott became the best of friends. They lived in the same house sharing the chores.
