Oh. My. Goodness. In the spirit of true Erin-ness, E and boyfriend joined a Quidditch team, and yesterday was the WORLD. CUP. Teams from all over the US traveled to Hell’s kitchen to fake-fly around on brooms and beat the crap out of each other. (For those of you who live under Rocks, Quidditch is the flying broom sport in Harry Potter.) The best part of the whole affair is how simultaneously serious and silly it is. As a Beater (?) the person who is meant to throw a blue ball at the opposing team (?) Erin totally dominated and I couldn’t be prouder. I wanted a video of the gold-dressed crazy running man Snitch, but he was hiding in the porta potty.
