So, it’s not a big secret that we’re huge Harry Potter fans around here. We are, after all, the family that had Hogwarts Summer School not one, but two, summers in a row. On any given night, at least two (and usually more!) of my kids are listening to the audio books recorded by Jim Dale. We all dressed up to buy the last book.
What might be a secret is that I am a huge fan of (OK, and even have written some!) Harry Potter fan fiction.
And since children tend to imitate what they see around them, it should not have shocked me when Michael decided to dabble in a little fan fiction of his own. What did shock me, however, was the content:
Harry Potters Sixth Year
Harry and Ginny were sitting in the three broomsticks. Harry was sipping a Butterbeer, and Ginny was stuffing her face with pie. (She’s fatter than she seems.) They chatted for awhile when Cho Chang came in. Harry new this was not a good thing as she had her wand drawn. She strode toward Harry and Ginny and said, “ I went to Madam PuddyFoots but you were not there.”
Harry said, “You think I am going back in there, after all the confetti that went into the toilet. Why are you here anyway, I have other friends now, right Ginny.”
Cheery, isn’t it?
