Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Hints

| Working | February 11, 2013

(I’m at the checkout of a small store with several t-shirts. Note: I am left-handed.)

Checkout Girl: “Cash or card?”

Me: “Card.”

(I give my card and I sign on the receipt. As I do, the checkout girl gives me a strange look.)

Checkout Girl: “Oh, I see… your wand arm is different from most of ours. Sinister…”

Me: “Huh?”

Checkout Girl: “What are people like you doing here? Muggles!”

(I finally realise what is going on. When she bags my stuff and hands them to me, I say…)

Me: “Master gave Dobby clothes! Dobby is free!”

(We both begin to laugh and exchange phone numbers. She later told me that “sinister” was a word for left-handedness in Latin. I even called her home once to show her my Harry Potter collection! Funny way to make friends!)
