Share Your World – With A Twist 8-10-2020

Thanks to Melanie for hosting the Share your World and for adding a new dimension!
Hi Roger!!

I’m afraid I am not a Potterite. I haven’t read a single page, let alone a book, and fell asleep when the film was on TV. However, fun is the name of the game, so I’m going to have a go!

This week the book OR the movie is “Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone”

Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

  1. Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick an owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer.
    I’d have a unicorn because I think they are magical.

  2. Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember?
    What’s on the shopping list I’ve left in the kitchen.
  3. Professor Dumbledore gave Harry Potter an invisibility cloak that Dumbledore said was from Harry’s father. Now, you have inherited a cloak with similar powers. Would you use it? When?
    I might use it once just to test that it worked. 
  4. While cleaning your attic, you have discovered the Mirror of Erised. (“Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror) The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Professor Dumbledore, when you gaze into it, it shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” You have chosen to look in the mirror. What do you see?
    My Mum and Dad smiling and waving at me

Please have a bit of fun with the answers.   Even if you aren’t a Potter fan, the questions are (to me anyway) fun ones which could be answered ‘outside of Harry Potter’s world’.   Imagination might be required though.   

Now for the ‘traditionalists’ who like “just the questions m’am (or sir)”.   Here’s three random “Plain” Questions:

Would You Rather Live 120 Years That Are Comfortable But Boring, Or Live Half As Long, But Have An Exciting Adventure Packed Life?
My blood pressure won’t let me do excitement, but I don’t think I’d like to live to 120.  Late 80s would be OK I guess.

What’s Something That Overwhelms You?
In a bad way, bloody tourists. In a good way, assistant companion pets

What Do or DID You Take For Granted?
Pre Covid, being able to go out for a drive as and when we felt like it, for no apparent reason.

Gratitude:   Please feel free to share some gratitude moments or thoughts you’ve had recently.  This section is entirely optional.

This is our beach in May with no visitors…………. just the way we like it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Glad you joined the Potter group. You could never go wrong with a unicorn as a pet! And a Remembering Spell for the grocery list would be grand.

    Stay safe.

  2. murisopsis says:

    You saw the same thing Harry Potter did when he looked into the Mirror of Erised!!

  3. Sadje says:

    Good answers Di.

    I haven’t read or seen Potter either. It’s a disadvantage sometimes when taking part in quizzes – they all assume everyone’s into Potter.
    Same thing, I’ve only ever seen one Star Wars too, and that was enough.

    I’m thinking if you had a three headed Labrador, it’d eat you out of house and home (we have two, only one head apiece).

    • I love all dogs and had a couple at time for a few years…… german shepherd and rough collie. They ere pretty economical actually! I know Labs can be notorious for their appetites. We dog sat for a friend for a weekend and were given little packets of measured food and instructions as to when he could have it. The dog was so hungry, he knocked the bowl out of our hands before we could put it on the floor and in less than ten seconds had hoovered everything up! As a parting gift for our hospitality, the little sod ate our only swede in the veg patch!
      You might enjoy this post, though it is a little long, but it gives you an idea, especially as Sam, the swede eating lab above, is included in the tale

    I would love a dragon 🐉 and a unicorn 🦄 I suppose I couldn’t have both that would be greedy…. Perhaps a mix but they’d not ha a good name they’d either be a Dragcorn or a Unidrag or even a Cornigan ? 💜💜

  7. Wow! The beach is amazing. Our beaches up here have been crowded this summer. Just waiting for the Covid numbers to rise now.

  8. Thanks Di for Sharing Your World! I’m glad you took a lash at all the questions…because (to me) the HP ones can be answered even if one has never read nor seen a single HP book or movie. Your beach is lovely, how peaceful that must be in ‘non-invaders of the unwanted sort’ times! Uni-drag? Dragicorn? BWAHAHHAHAH!! Too funny. Thanks again! 🙂
