I always order my coffee via the Starbucks app buried within the university just as I took the elevator down one floor to the school bookstore which is connected to Starbucks. I walked in and noticed that hardly anyone was there. Suddenly a man shouted loudly and clearly, “Mobile order for Robin,” That was me, so I headed over to the fellow. That was really fast.
I was halfway across the store and one of the other women workers shouted gleefully, “Robin! That’s like Batman and Robin”
Joining in the fun an taking the opportunity to give the staff a reason to remember me, I enthusiastically shouted back, “Yep, that’s me! Robin, as in Batman.” I whisked my Peppermint Mocha away and carried on some more, “That’s Robin! As in Batman!”
I turned to leave and to my delight, I overheard the couldn’t see whose voice giggled from somewhere behind the counter a cheerful fellow repeated the cheery chorus, “That’s Batman as in Robin!” 🐠🦑🐬🐳🦕
Remember… that’s Robin! As in Batman!”
I arrived in the classroom and remarked that they’d all moved from their usual seats. Excitedly proclaimed that they’d created the power gay row! I told them about my Starbucks adventured and they laughed heartily and joined in on the story.
.”Haha! Robin was so gay!” “I thought he was a teenager.” “Teenager!?He was gay.” “I thought Batman was gay!” Someone ended the fun by announcing loudly. “They were both gay!”
I took the opportunity to divulge a little family history to see how they’d respond and said, “You know that there are
four of us in my generation and of us three are gay.”
They were pleasantly surprised with the news
Then the Professor joined us and talk about Robin, Batman, the lesbian power row and my family history.
That was Wednesday. It is almost 3 a.m.Friday. Man, time for sleep.
Be kind to each other today,
Yes, that’s Right,
Robin, as in Batman.
