As I continue to rekindle my romance with Harry Potter (read here if you haven’t already), I stumbled upon something that made me really think in the third novel. In various chapters, but especially in one main one, the third years must face ‘Boggarts’ in Defence Against The Dark Arts. Now, a boggart takes the shape of whatever you fear most, so I began to think about what it would turn into for me. I thought, and thought and thought some more. My two biggest fears are falling and stairs (as we all know), but I don’t get freaked out by the sight of them. A staircase isn’t exactly going to make me run screaming, it’s just when I start to climb them they do. I’m kind of scared of clowns, but I don’t think that’s a big enough fear, it’s more an ‘avoid them when I can’ kind. They vaguely freak me out more than scare me to death. I’m completely stumped. I have no idea what my boggart would turn into. Maybe I’d be like Hermione and have a teacher telling me I’d failed everything as my greatest fear. That is a pretty scary thought…
What would YOUR boggart turn into?

ps. Harry Potter re-reading is going well. Almost two weeks since I started and I’m currently a few chapters into book four. And loving it 🙂
