I talked to someone today who has NEVER HEARD OF HARRY POTTER.
Apparently, it’s just “never been mentioned” around this woman. Seriously. It’s HARRY POTTER. How could have not even have heard of one of the movies, if not one of the books? That’s like saying that you haven’t heard of something called WATER or don’t know when Zac Efron’s birthday is. Everybody knows.
I feel like I’ve been hit with a stupefy spell.
How is it possible to have NEVER HEARD OF HARRY POTTER?
* And yes, all those capitals are necessary, it’s really my only way to show you that I’m actually yelling while typing this.
(Before you try to rationalize this, I have to tell you- this is NOT a woman who just moved here from some faraway jungle or remote desert. She lives near me. She has children. She’s fluent in English, enjoys reading and apparently lives her life wearing earplugs).
