Watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince With My Father

Posted 27 January 2010 in by Catriona

A flashback to the Christmas holidays:

MY FATHER: Are those dark wizards flying around?
ME: No, that’s a train.
MY FATHER: Oh, well, that’s all right then.

And slightly later:

MY FATHER: Did that house just appear out of nowhere?
ME: No. They just walked up to it.
MY FATHER: Oh.

There’s something to be said for retaining a childlike sense of wonder, after all.

That sounds exactly like watching a movie with me!

If I’m being totally honest, it’s a bit like watching a film with me, too. I wonder if there’s some genetic component?
