- 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’d love to be able to speak to animals and I think that my own pets would be the first creatures I’d want to talk to. I’d want to tell Cindy that she doesn’t have to worry when I go out without her because I will always come back. I’d like to ask Polly to please let me clean her eyes and give her flea and worm treatments without her putting up a fight about 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 never had a graduation portrait so I’ll have to pass on this one.
- 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?
I don’t think I’d like to transform into another person but maybe into Cindy or Polly to see life from their perspective. It might make me a better pet owner.
- 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?
I had a flood in my laundry once when my hot water service sprung a leak but it was neither dangerous nor comical. Luckily it was a tiled floor so it was just a nuisance. I agree with Marilyn whose answers I read earlier. There is nothing funny about a household flood. At best you get wet smelly carpets, at worst ruined possessions and serious expense replacing everything.
Mundane or “Muggle” Questions:
(Serious one which is rather creepy): How do you think you’ll die? IF you do think about it?
I do think about it. I know how I’d like to die, at home in my sleep but how I actually will die I have no idea. I just hope it will be quick.
What’s the best on-line screen name you’ve seen? “Best might mean the oddest.
Nope. I’ve got nothing.
What’s invisible that you wish people could see?
Again I agree with Marilyn. Odour, also certain disabilities which are unnoticeable most of the time. I’m thinking of the people who have a genuine reason for having a disabled sticker for their car but don’t look disabled. They get grief from other people who think they are parking illegally or not entitled to the sticker.
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?
If you replaced all the parts in a car you would have spent far more than the car is worth and it would never be new because you would not be replacing them at the same time. David and I owned 3 cars in 30 years. We changed them when the repairs were more expensive and more frequent than it would have been to buy a new one.
