Worse Off Wednesday...
I'm enjoying this meme. The blog I got it from (I really need to remember who I got this from so I can link...) (I got it! The Book Buff! See, I guess I am not a total idiot, then...) had Severus Snape last week and I almost kept in line with the Harry Potter theme, but went with Frodo instead. But I just got done watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One for like... the umpteenth time, so I am going to go with Harry Potter himself.
I find myself saying, "Poor Harry" so often I might as well make a recording. I am looking forward to the final movie and know what happens, but still.... Poor Harry.
Orphaned, given to family who wants nothing to do with him. MUGGLES on top of it all! At least Dudders learned to respect Harry even if he was unsure why.
Harry's only hope of peace and as normal a life as he will ever know is to be sent off to Hogwart's. Ron and Hermione are the best friends he could ever have, but people look at him like he's grown a second head on his shoulders. All because he never knew he was "famous". And then to have his teen years, the best years of his life, full of stress and heartache as he battles Voldemort.
How would you feel if you had to fight for your life almost every single day because people are trying to kill you? Gah! Horrible.
So yes, I should hope I am not worse off than Harry Potter.
