Harry Potter And The Inevitable Asylum

, , , , | Related | September 4, 2017

(I’m visiting my parents, and watching Harry Potter movies all weekend on the TV. My parents have never seen them, and my dad asks me what they’re about.)

Me: “Harry Potter is an orphan boy who lives with his aunt and uncle, who make him live in a cupboard under the stairs. He finds out that he’s a wizard and that his parents were murdered by an evil wizard named Voldemort. He goes to a school called Hogwarts where he learns magic and makes friends.”

Dad: “Oh, I thought it was about an abused kid who made up all these adventures in his head to keep himself entertained.”

Me: “…that would have been a much different story, yes. Still interesting, though!”
