“I begged: Do it. Do what? The voice. He shut his eyes. He wanted to say no, but he didn’t want to be impolite. Or else he recognized that I wouldn’t stop. He fixed me with his ice-blue eyes and cleared his throat and in perfect gravelly Batman said: Hello, Harry. Oh, I loved it. Again! He did it again. I loved it even more. We shared a big laugh.”
