Overheard at the Wright Household

So…Mom stays up until 2:30 in the morning trying to finish a short story. She stumbles off to bed in hopes of sleeping until 10. At some point that feels like 5am but is probably more like 9, there is a knocking at the bedroom door.

Mom: “This has better be a life or death emergency!”

Juss: “Mom, what Hogwarts House would Tom and Jerry be in?”

There is a moment of stunned silence.

Mom, in a tone of abject astonishment: “You mean the cat and the mouse?”

Juss: “Yes.”

There is another moment of stunned silence.

Mom, preparing to go back to sleep. “The cat’s in Slythern and the mouse is in Griffindor.”
