Two unexpected things have made me very happy Saturday

The first is something I saw through the bus window on my way to school. On the hospital side of the corner where State Street and Bulldog Boulevard meet I saw a guy randomly dancing by himself. Now this was not just a guy doing a little jig; this was a full on, seemingly choreographed, dance. I will try to recreate the image, but my words will most likely come up short. This was a man sporting a exquisite black fa├žade including a splendid hat of which at one point he threw into the air busted a move then caught his hat and continued on. It was very impressive. I felt like I was in one of those movies where people start breaking into dance and the whole world accepts it as a perfectly normal thing and doesn’t look twice. Except for me, because I stared in unexpected delight.

Then while walking to the bathroom on the third floor of the library I saw this sign.

It made me want to run full-fledged at the wall to see if I would pass through into some special magical wizard bathroom. It just makes me wonder what was hidden on the other side. (They probably used an extension charm so muggles couldn’t tell that it was there.) I also think there was a muggle-repelling charm on the wall, because just as I thought about running through it I suddenly remembered I had a paper to write and had to hurry off.


  1. You know I figured out something about myself when I saw this sheet.... I am not a muggle.

  2. Oh man, I love it when nerds show their true colors. It's nice knowing I'm not the only one on this world.

  3. Oh my goodness, you two are very silly (referring to Mark and Kirk! Good job, Rachel! Don't ever stop WRITING!
