the importance of being Harry

#1 son is currently in the front yard, in the twilight, loudly being Harry Potter.  I sent him out to get the mail from the letterbox and I guess he encountered a couple of Dementors on the way.  :~D 
 
He and son#3 were playing HP in front the PS2 eyetoy and son#1 took it upon himself to put a red biro scar on his forehead, scrounged his old glasses (which are very Harry Potter-like) out of a cupboard, a dressing gown for robes, and is out there right now shouting "Expecto Patronum" at the top of his lungs.  I can hear him in here, so I'm sure all the neighbours are sharing the joy as well.  :~)
#1 son has Down syndrome and his speech is rather poor, so his Expecto Patronum sounds more like "PeckoRownum!", which is pretty amusing to say the least, but I can't fault his enthusiasm!

That's fabulous!! One thing I don't do enough of is act like Harry Potter. I never go outside to fight dementors... except I just remembered that the other day I tried to Accio! something from a shelf that was too high. Alas, I didn't have my wand.

*chuckles guiltily* You know you're obsessed to a ridiculous degree when you find yourself considering the correct spell or charm for a situation. Accio! and Lumos! pop into my head all the time. And Crucio is disturbingly regular. Never for the kids, but quite often for extended family fuckwits. :~P Yes, I'm afraid it would be straight to Azkaban for me! ;~)

Two things: 1) fuckwit is not a word that I use enough - at all, really - I think I need to start. 2) You only go to Azkaban if the family fuckwits did not deserve the Crucio... so, perhaps your safe... ;)

Thanks. :~) I thought it was pretty funny too.

That is simply an adorable image. Make believe is so important for all of us and moments of abandoned joy like that are precious.

Yes, he can be wonderfully uninhibited sometimes and he has a wicked sense of humour. I always said he'd be a stand-up comedian if he could TALK. :~P
He was doing deadly accurate Trelawny impressions for us at the dinner table tonight; had us in fits of laughter.

This was the most adorable thing I have ever heard. I love kids and their imagination - so cute!

The other day I Alohamora-ed a sliding door at Toys R Us but that just gets funny looks.

Funny looks are affirmation of your uniqueness. Be proud! :~D

I love your family and I've never met them. #1 son sounds great. Dementors on the way to the letterbox? *laughs* Actually, not so funny. I think I've been encountering a few Dementors recently... there might be some in Melbourne after all. *practices Expecto Patronum and happy thoughts*
11th-Jul-2004 08:25 am (UTC)
Thanks Myf. :~) And I think I agree with you about the Dementors hanging around Melb. I ran into a particularly nasty one when I was walking the dog this morning and couldn't think of a happy thought to save my life. (extended family fuckwits! ARGH!) Fortunately it passed after an hour or so...

Aw, that's so cute! Wish I wasn't too old and inhibited to play at being Harry...although I did do a bit of swishing about in my gown and hood on Wednesday night, feeling wizardy.

Did you see the pics of JK receiving her award the other day? In her red and gold robes. All I could think was that she was even in her Gryffindor colours! :~D
