|Having a "geeky" HP moment at the Midnight showing of Deathly Hallows Part 2|
It all started with a simple request from a little girl. To read a book she thought I would like. Who would have known that it would turn into a 10+ year obsession with the life of a little boy named Harry.
I was one of the lucky ones that had to wait for each new book to come out. I got to guess and discuss what was going to happen. I got to live each book with fresh eyes that no movie or person interrupted for me. I loved the waiting and wondering, the ups and downs, the new twist and turns. I LOVE HARRY POTTER!
I still remember when the last book was published. I waited by my door for the mail to be delivered. I pre-order the book on Amazon and it was guaranteed on that Saturday. When it arrived, my husband was away with the boys, so I settled into my favorite reading chair and devoured the book. I only got up when nature called and when dinner was ready. I stayed up all night to finish this wonderful book.
I've never read a book so fast, but I didn't want anyone to ruin it for me. I remember different parts that I cried and others that I laughed. I was amazed by some of the truths that were reveled and sad that it was over.

Last night I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. This was another bittersweet moment. After the books, I had the movies to look forward to, but now that too has come to a close. The evening was so much fun. Waiting in line at 5:00 to watch Part 1 at 9:00 and then Part 2 at 12 Midnight. Seeing the different people dressed up. Talking to people that love Harry just as much as I do. But I have to admit I do love Ron Weasley more. The movie was wonderful. Of course, there were things left out, but it was a glorious finish to the movie series.
|I just love Ron!!|
Thank you J.K. Rowling for writing such a magical, entertaining story. You have brought many, many hours of happiness to my life and I will always cherish my memories of the boy that lived.
