Mischief Managed

At first
I was devastated to have missed the midnight premier of Harry Potter.
(I finally decided that throwing myself into a room of 10 screaming todds on 3 hours of sleep would be a recipe for disaster!)
Though it probably turned out for the best...
There was only about two-thirds of a theater full of people yesterday evening
to see me crying.
Okay okay,
bawling is probably more like it.

The movie was every bit as epic as I could have hoped,
and I even managed to sneak in a bag of Pirate Booty and a can Diet Coke!

But nonetheless, I was sad when it ended.
Sad that this story and these characters who grew up beside me were done.
It was finally over.

It feels more than a little silly to be blogging about Harry Potter.
But I truly loved those stories.
Still do, in fact.
I used to pretend I was there.
Living at Hogwarts, eating cauldron cakes, and exploring in an invisibility cloak.
With a wand, a crimson and gold stripped Gryffindor scarf, and the Marauders map.
These stories made my childhood magical.
And really, it will never be over...
