Rio: Mom, have you seen Harry?
Me: No. He’s your imaginary friend. I can’t see him.
Rio: Well, he said he was going to meet me in my room, and me and Ron have just been waiting and waiting for him…I just can’t find him anywhere.
Me: Maybe he’s wearing his invisibility cloak? Harry has an invisibility cloak, you know…
Rio: NO. He’s just disappeared.
Tears start to well up in her eyes. Harry Potter is just about her best friend in the world, and he’s stood her up and there is not a damn thing I can do about it other than hold her while she cries. I’m sure this won’t be the last time she cries over a boy and I feel powerless to help, but it’s the first and I would bet funniest.
