Denial. Thank You.

Today is the day for Harry Potter to make his big, splashy conclusion.  Let me be clear about this.  I'm not happy about it.  My way of dealing with it is this.  I'm denying it.  I watched a movie trailer when they first came out.  Showed them to my class that read the book.  I haven't looked at the clips since.  Last night it opened.  I was angry to see it on the news.  Angry.  I turned the channel when the news reported it.  Loads of people have gone to see it.  Even my mother has seen it.  That is pretty bizarre to me.  Here's my deal.  I'm just not going to.  Don't make me explain it. Call me weird, but I just can't do it.  They call it the grieving process.  Which step is denial and anger?  Yea.  That's me. 

I'll see it eventually.  Just not right now.  Until then, it's not over.


  1. It is sad, isn't it? But there's still Pottermore to look forward to, Becky!

  2. It's hard to say goodbye to something that has been an on-going "Christmas Surprise" for the last 12 years or so. It's hard to believe there will be no more Potter Anticipation.

    It's the end of an era. I totally get it.

  3. I know what you mean. I felt that way when the last book came out.
