Or Bobbyisms .: Chapter Number Something.
So Melissa and I met up tonight to finally initiate what would become a crazy, competitive Potter-off – a head-to-head competition playing Scene It! Harry Potter Edition. There were laughs, there were tears, there were (many) instances (streaks) of trash talking (realllly colourful).
But the funniest moment had to be right before we began to play, she posed a question to me that she’s been asked a lot recently, “in The Deathly Hallows, whose death were you most upset about, and why?” And I had to think about it for a while before I decided that it was Fred Weasley’s.
But I think it’s because the Weasley twins felt very important to me, like main characters despite the fact that the books weren’t named for them. And completely honestly now, I swear… I actually started spouting the following:
“I think it was Fred, definitely, that broke my heart… and they’d just gotten their business off of the ground and all. And then there’s George, but what’s he going to do? Do you think he’ll take some time off of work? Is it sad that this is how I think when I read books? But I bet he would.”
Melissa beat me very narrowly in the first two games we played, then couldn’t keep the streak alive for Game 3. I’ve declared a Best-of-7 series, so don’t even pretend like I won’t be posting updates as time goes on…
