HARRY POTTER AND I
I am more and more convinced that I am not in the wind anymore ! I am getting old ! Can you imagine that I never read a Harry Potter book, or watched a HP movie ?? I wouldn't even know who he is if the television wouldn't talk about him every day since the new movie came out and now even worse the new book ! Wherever I look there is Harry ! (not the prince but the Potter) In newspapers, in magazines in shops on Internet and on blogs. Harry's, with round rimmed glasses decorated face, looks at me everywhere except on public toilets so far. I just can't escape.
Friday a heavy Harry Potter wind or rather storm blew over the whole world. The new book would be on sale from midnight on ! What did I see at TV in the evening, long lines of teenagers sitting in the rain on the street and waiting to buy the new book ! Everybody wants to be the first. Apparently it's already the 7th book and they say it will be the last ! How awful !
The only thing I know about Harry Potter is that a certain Mrs. J.K. Rowling has written all the books and that more than 300 million copies of the six Harry Potter books have been sold. From a poor housewife she became a millionaire just by inventing a boy who is a witch ! I always thought witches were females but I learned ! A male witch is called a wizard. Anyway I don't know if he travels on a broom or a bicycle or maybe now that he is 18 with a car ?
How can I continue my life as an ignorant woman without Harry Potter ? I am full of inferiority complexes now, such a lack of general knowledge and education ! He even gained the Vatican's seal of approval in 2003 when an official said the books helped children "to see the difference between good and evil". That means even the pope has read the books ! I wonder if he queued up in the rain to get the new book ? At least he is more in the wind then I am.
Now I have the choice or I buy these books and read them and also watch all movies or I have to shoot myself ! That's a question of honor !
