Today’s title is not referring to the film starring Demi Moore and Rob Lowe (I have seen the film a million and one times during my Rob Lowe school girl crush days) but I am talking about my eventful reading material last night.
I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The book has taken me longer than normal to read, as knowing it was the final, crucial installment, I have wanted to absorb every single word. Although I have avoided any reviews/conversations about it, like I would avoid the plague.
I won’t spoil it for anyone who is in the process of reading it still, or contemplating buying it. Let’s just say, it does not disappoint. The climax at the end had me scanning the words at lightening speed, for I couldn't wait to hear what would happen next. My eyes read the very last word about midnight last night.
Phew, I felt exhausted and fulfilled when I closed the book. Isn’t it great how a book can do that to you?!
My head hit the pillow, still thinking Harry Potter type thoughts, and I drifted off into dream land. In my dream land, I was, wait for it, none other than Harry Potter!
I was a wizard with a magical wand. I commanded order and attention where ever I ventured. And I possessed magical powers like no other. And would you be able to guess what I decided to do with these magnificent life changing powers? I decided to stop toast from burning. Yes, Harry Potter strikes again. In my dream I flew high on my broomstick, circulating houses where the toaster was in action. Here I cast a spell on bread, and to the amazement of the toast loving muggles, I prevented it from being over done.
I have no idea why I limited my new powers to toast. Disappointed when I awoke? A little.
Before all the excitement of the final chapter and the toasters, I came across a very unusual tree while walking from the station to my house. In fact, I had to do a double take, as out of the corner of my eye it looked like a giant nose jutting out the bark of a tree. Can you see it too?
