At lunch today, I was teasing my younger brother as usual, and this is what came out: “You know, when Harry Potter was your age, he freaking discovered the Chamber of Secrets and saved Hogwarts! What have you done?” To which 12-year-old Michael responded with: “What?”
HP’s been on the brain nonstop again because I’ve been rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince again, and today I seemed to have found even more things throughout the text that amused me more and more. On page 458, Rowling writes,
Harry tried every variation of “I need to see what Draco Malfoy is doing inside you” that he could think of for a whole hour…
Naturally, my dirty, young adult mind immediately thought of more inappropriate things than what Draco Malfoy was doing inside the Room of Requirement.
And on the very next page, Seamus Finnigan asks Snape what the difference is between an Inferius and a ghost. For some reason, I asked myself, “Why not Wikipedia it?”
I don’t know what on earth is possessing me to write all this down, but I think that’s enough Harry Potter for me today. It is nearly 1 in the morning, and once again I am up late awake again. This time I really shouldn’t be, because I have work at 10:30, and I ought to wake up at 9, so if I want a sufficient amount of sleep I should have gone to bed an hour ago. 🙁
