“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled.”
I am not Hermione Granger. I’ve never been to Hogwarts, I’m not the brightest young witch of my age, and my boyfriend’s name is not Ron.
However, I have had strangers repeatedly comment upon the similarities between me and this fictional character. I guess there are similarities.
- Have bushy brown hair
- Have brown eyes (although mine are hazel-ish)
- Have rather large front teeth…sadly
- Are know for intellect and cleverness.
- Can be quite bossy
- Are book-smart
- Are afraid of failure
- Are loyal
And I’m sure there’s more. But I’m not Hermione! Unless this means that I get to ride a train to a magical school for young witches and wizards…
This is not an uncommon occurrence. Additionally, when I used one of those online “generate a nickname” site, it gave me, you guessed it, the name Hermione. Sigh.
