Reason #398 I Love Stephanie Perkins

At dinner, both of us so tired we are slumped against the walls of the booth, randomly looking at each other and giggling over nothing. Somehow this happened during the course of a conversation:

Steph: "An eleven-year-old? Yeah, I think an eleven-year-old could understand that. That's how old Harry Potter was."

Me: "What?"

Steph: "In the first book. He was eleven. I base all knowledge of those stages of child development on what Harry Potter could do and how he thought during the corresponding book."

Me: *crippled with laughter*

Steph: "SUPERFAN. Also I do actually think that way."

I miss you, Steph. Come back.

Harry Potter is the reason that I am terrified to have my as-yet-unborn children turn fifteen. (I love you too, Stephanie!)

If this means that I get to be a Hogwarts mom in seven years then I am suddenly VERY excited to have my children grow up. Age faster, girls! Mommy wants to meet Professor McGonagall!

I advise you to stop counting the reasons to love Stephanie. Remember: Numbers never end. :)

P.S. I am still giddy over seeing you yesterday!
