Did Harry Potter Leave His Glasses at Your Pool?

Bit of a Tan

Okay you did it. You broke down and accepted being a part of the hype when you asked Mr. Potter over for a dip. After racing him in the water a few times (making certain to let him win), you two agreed on a chat and laid down on chairs for a bit of a tan.

You Knew it Already

In your conversation you asked Harry the things you always wanted to know such as “What’s it like being so famous?” and “What is your favorite food?” And because H.P. is a good magic neighbor you listened in its entirety his life story which you already knew because you had read the books.

Time to Say “Goodbye”

With prodding Harry Potter did reveal some things you had never heard before. Mostly about the writer of the series and how she had created his story in the first place. The young magician began to visibly sweat as he continued  talking and brought up that the writer came from very challenging times and managed to write an outline and books despite (or maybe because of) the these distractions. Now that you were talking about this topic, Potter had had enough and said he had to leave. You nodded that you understood and said your goodbyes.

Note to Self

Minutes later you saw his spectacles had been forgotten. You knew Harry would be back to talk again. Though next time around it is advisable when speaking with him that you don’t bring up “Jo” again.¬† Storybook characters like to be in denial of the fact that they are fictional characters.
