Muggle Life

I'm still reading the Harry Potter series aloud to our kids. We're 15% into Book 6 now. The worst of Harry's sullenness is behind us.

Last night we read about the owls bringing Harry and Romione's letters to The Burrow. I said, "Muggles must see owls flying around with letters all the time. They probably think owls steal mail. Mailboxes are probably adorned with scarecrows to ward off owls." Jerome said, "Owls are bringing their O.W.L. results! I wonder if they have newts bring the N.E.W.T. results!" I said, "They can't have the owls bring the newts because the owls would land and hack up newt skeletons clutching tiny envelopes."
