Muggle Stories: Remus Lupin, the Pet Rabbit
“I was introduce to the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter by my younger sister in 1998. She was finishing up elementary school, while I was in middle school. I thought it must be a silly children’s book if she liked it, but my curiosity got the best of me and I began to read the Sorcerer’s Stone. It immediately drew me in. I couldn’t deny it’s greatness!
From then on, my sister and I would fight to take turns reading the subsequent books as they came out. Even my mom got in on the action by the time the 4th book was released. I was so excited to read the dramatic conclusion (although sad that such a good series had to come to an end) that I finished the Deathly Hallows within a 12 hour period (I’m a fast reader).
The day of my high school graduation was when the 3rd HP movie was released. A bunch of friends of mine went to see it that day. It’s interesting seeing the cinematic interpretation of the books. I also made sure to go to the Harry Potter exhibit while it was at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry this summer.
I am not crazy enough to name my children for Harry Potter characters; I would never be that cruel, just my pet rabbit. He has been dubbed Remus Lupin.”
