Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what animal would you like to speak to? What would be the topic of your first conversation?
Dogs. I would love to know what the Duke is thinking about. And the birds and squirrels. I wonder if they even think in the sense that we mean it?
The portraits in Hogwart’s dormitories can talk. If your graduation portrait could speak to people passing it by, what would it tell them?
I will take the fifth on that one. I’m sure it would be gibberish.
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger use the Pollyjuice Potion for finding new clues for the happenings at Hogwarts. (The Pollyjuice Potion is a magic potion that allows your body to form into that of another and live their life for a few hours.) If you could transform into another being, who would you chose to be? What would you hope to learn?
Nope. Not going there. I hate rumor, gossip, and loathe eavesdropping. Pollyjuice manages to combine all three.
No one hears anything good by eavesdropping. Rumor-mongering isn’t an official mortal sin, but it ought to be. From rumor-mongering comes blackmail, extortion, and great statements like “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” which to me means that if it looks like “he did it,” assume he did. Out of which you wind up with lynchings and online attacks that make teenagers commit suicide. Shame on those who do it and shame on anyone who encourages it.
There was a flooding in the girl’s bathroom where Moaning Myrtle resides. What has been the most dangerous (or comical) ‘flooding’ where you reside?
There’s nothing funny about flooding. If you can’t afford to have a company come and clear up the mess, it takes months to make your home not stink of rot and mold. There’s nothing fun or humorous about it.
Mundane or “Muggle” Questions
(Serious one which is rather creepy): How do you think you’ll die? IF you do think about it?
Considering how hard I’ve fought to stay alive, I do not think about dying. I have enough issues and I’m sure one of them will eventually take me out. In the meantime. life just is and I’m glad to be part of the living.
What’s the best online screen name you’ve seen? “Best” might mean the oddest.
I come up blank on this one. Sorry.
What’s invisible that you wish people could see?
Odor. If people could see how they smell, they might do something about it!
If over time you replace parts on a car, at what point does it stop being the same car you bought? How many parts do you need to replace to make it a new car?
I have so many spare parts in my body, I’m beginning to wonder at what point I stop being me and become someone else, a “miracle of modern medicine.”
As for cars, we can’t afford old cars. We can’t repair them. When the price of your monthly repairs comes close to or exceeds what you’d pay for a new or newer car? Replace it. As for my body, I think I’m out of spare parts.
