Last weekend I drove to Winona to play board games with friends. Winona, MN is my college town and it’s nice to visit to see friends along with campus. We played a variety of board games including Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit. Thanks to re-reading the books, I won the game. I didn’t get a chance to post a WYR question last week, but let’s continue on with this blog series.
Would You Rather: Have to Take Divination with Professor Trelawney OR Take History of Magic with Professor Binns
I will be transparent with you all. . . I would be absolutely awful at Divination. I believe in astronomy, but not astrology. I tend to be a factual person which is why I gravitate towards science. Divination in my mind would be perfect for those with vivid imaginations. Being able to predict the future would be neat. Being semi-responsible for the prophecies in the Department of Mysteries would freak me out.
History of Magic is a class more described in the books than the movies. It’s taught by the ghost, Professor Binns. It’s extremely boring as Ron and Harry often fall asleep and rely on Hermione to pay attention. Learning about goblin rebellions could be slightly long, but it would be interesting to me to see how the Wizarding World came to exist. Plus would they talk about other Wizarding schools and their origins??
I’m going to pick. . .
Taking History of Magic with Professor Binns. Professor Trelawney would be the best professor, but I truly believe I would be terrible at the subject. I wouldn’t be as harsh as Hermione, but I would give the subject a certain level of scrutiny.
What about you? Have I picked the less popular answer?
