Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

  1. 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?  I would love to actually have a conversation with my cats. I’m dying to know why they insist on meowing and fighting once I go to bed at night. They sleep all day and save their antics when I want to sleep.
  2. The portraits in Hogwart’s dormitories can talk. If your graduation portrait could speak to people passing it by, what would it tell them?  My graduation portrait wouldn’t speak very nicely at all. Most likely, it would say put your f-ing eyes back in your head. I hate white, so yes my dress is blue. Do you have a problem with blue?
  3. 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?  Sorry, this would be way too much fun because the lessons I seek are how to use a sniper rifle accurately and what I can do to improve my shooting skills. There are a lot of people sufficiently capable with a rifle but I want to be inside Chris Kyle’s head.

     4. 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? Back in 1973, there was a flood in Montpelier, Vermont by where we lived the week of finals. The road had water going over it but had not collapsed. My siblings and cousins who lived next door gave it a helping hand. And to make sure we couldn’t get picked up for school the other end of road, we ran the water hose and helped that side as well. The road was flooded, we were exempt from finals the next two days. Unfortunately, we didn’t think enough ahead because we had to walk over 2 miles to reach the next pickup location and we had to make the finals up. Plus, we now added more work on ourselves lugging groceries and other things to and from the house.


Mundane or “Muggle” Questions:

(Serious one which is rather creepy):  How do you think you’ll die?  IF you do think about it? My genetics seem determined to have cancer, I believe it will be the cause of my demise.

What’s the best on-line screen name you’ve seen? “Best might mean the oddest. I’m going with Avocadorable. Not sure what they were thinking?

What’s invisible that you wish people could see? I wish all the germs that people don’t get off their hands would show. Maybe hand washing would be taken seriously.

I already saw someone said covid-19 so I didn’t repeat.

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 used to help my father initially in the garage. Then when I was old enough to drive, I had to demonstrate I could change the oil, brake fluid and lines, the tires,  check all the fluids like tranny and windshield washer and replace a battery myself. I was grateful I learned later on life because some of the men in my life were clueless about cars.

I bought a 1986 Monte Carlo brand new. I owned it 3 weeks when I hit a moose. The car was totaled but the motor and transmission were unharmed. They were then put into my 1981 Pontiac Catalina which had blown a head gasket and the car had a lot of miles on it so it was questionable on balancing the cost versus the age. But once that decision was made for me by the moose. The Catalina got an upgrade, I drove her for 10 more years until the frame was considered dangerous. She ran like a brand new car.

In response to your question for me is when the cost of the repairs is more than when it was a new car to you.

  1. Thanks for participating in Share Your World, Lyn! Great answers. I admit the Monte Carlo story brought a bit of mist to my eye, as I owned one of those, a LOT later in life (in the late 1990s or early 2000s) and that car was durable for sure. But against a moose? Uh, there are very very few (if any) vehicles that could best a moose. I bet the moose was ticked off too (j/k). Have a great week!
