My lunch today consisted of a sandwich, an apple, a goblet of pumpkin juice (just because I throw the stuff in people’s faces doesn’t mean that I don’t like it), and a ministry pamphlet entitled, “Planting Ahead: Why the Garden is Mightier Than the Countercurse.”
The pamphlet literally talked about how if you plant a defensive garden well in advance of a duel, then the plants can do all the work for you. Because I always know the exact location of a duel months in advance.
This is getting ridiculous.
Tell me about it. I got a leaflet the other day about how apparently offensive spells are proven to increase the risk of spattergoit and other disfiguring diseases. How old do they think we are, three? I’d understand them giving that kind of rubbish to a Hufflepuff (offence entirely intended), but to Slytherins? My pride was insulted.
