IT is time to Share My World Harry Potter style with….
This is the challenge where Roger and Melanie asks several questions for Potterites and Muggles alike, and in answering them we all share our worlds.
Here are the questions and my answers.
You have just been gifted a magic wand that specializes in completing household chores. You can request the completion of only two household chores. Which chores would you assign your wand to complete?
I need a wand for the dusting and the vacuuming. These are chores I never seem to get too. Though, if the truth be told I am not good at keeping up with housework period.
At the local Wizards-R-Us store there was a sale on handshake shockers, instant darkness pellets, and levitation pills. Which of these ‘party thrillers’ are you more likely to purchase?
Instant darkness pellets sound way more fun than the others. Now, if they were instant flying pills I might reconsider.
In the alley behind Wizards-R-Us, there was a tradesman selling a Love Potion. The sales pitch was too much for you and you yielded and purchased one vial. What do you do with it?
I store it away for someone who needs it…somewhere where I will be absolutely safe from it.
You are the Great Clearinghouse Winner of a new ‘good luck’ potion – Felix Felicis. It has to be used within the next thirty days or its potency becomes diminished. Do you use it? Do you give it to a friend in need?
I am pretty sure good luck is not a thing. The pathway is the pathway, and it is what we need it to be. Trying to change the pathway with luck is not only useless but if we manage it, it can be dangerous. So I would dump it out. No one needs it.
Melanie’s Mundane Muggle Questions:
If everyone spoke their mind, would this world be a better or worse place? Why?
We are not called to speak our minds. We are called to speak the truth in love. Those things are usually very different. My mind often wants to say things that are neither loving or things that are only as truthful as the spin of my opinion. Mostly I don’t trust myself to speak my mind. Why would I trust it in others?
Can achieving nothing make a person happy?
Sometimes I think achievement is overrated. Especially in this culture where achievements are made out of cookie cutters. Everyone thinks a person’s achievements should look exactly like their next door neighbors achievements. That is pretty far from the truth. I think the first question is what were we made to achieve? Shooting for that personal goal is a good thing as long as it is not being done to out achieve someone else.
How do you know if you love someone enough to marry them?
Good golly! Do you have a hundred years to listen to my rant on this? I guess if you can honestly speak the covenant oath then you love them enough. Here’s the thing. What if they get sick? What if they get poor? What if they get rich and the dazzle of riches makes them unfaithful to you? What if you get sick? What if you lose everything because of them? What if you get everything you want but keeping all the stuff means second -classing your relationship so you need to give it up? If you can make the oath to stick with them through all of this and not go seeking another then maybe you love them enough.
