It’s that time again!
Melanie’s post has added a twist this week, and maybe for the foreseeable future.
The awesome blogger, Roger Shipp, is the creator and host (if you will) of the first part. He found a unique way of passing some of the quarantine time and that was from watching ALL the “Harry Potter” movies. He came up with some really fun and intriguing questions (four a week for each movie) about the movie in question. This week we visit “The Sorcerer’s Stone”.
Really? Oh, all right…
Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick an owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer.
I’d choose a cat, because I like cats.
Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember?
Nah. I’m happy with the memories I have, even if they’re wrong.
Professor Dumbledore gave Harry Potter an invisibility cloak that Dumbledore said was from Harry’s father. Now, you have inherited a cloak with similar powers. Would you use it? When?
If I had a good reason to be invisible, I might use it. I can’t think of a reason for it now.
While cleaning your attic, you have discovered the Mirror of Erised. (“Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror) The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Professor Dumbledore, when you gaze into it, it shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” You have chosen to look in the mirror. What do you see?
The teenaged me. I want to start over again.
Okay, there’s that part. Here are the answers to the regularly-scheduled questions.
Would you rather live 120 years that are comfortable but boring, or live half as long, but have an exciting, adventure packed-life? The latter. I feel like I’m living the former.
What’s something that overwhelms you? Money management in retirement.
What do or did you take for granted? My health.
See you in the funny papers!
