All Aboard The Hogwarts Express

“All aboard The Hogwarts Express!!!”

“Where is it Daddy?”

“That’s it, right here.”

“It doesn’t look like it, and it is supposed to leave from platform 9¾.”

“Err well, the government took the rail franchise off the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and gave it to some Muggles so it now looks like a 2006 Ford Mondeo Estate and it leaves from this caravan.”

“Is this really Hogwarts Daddy?”

“So the guide book says and it must be right because it cost £8.”

“But this isn’t a real magic wand is it Daddy? It’s just a piece of brown plastic.”

“It bloody well better be magic for £6.”

“Daddy, is that a real flying broomstick?”

“Yep, it’s not just any old broomstick though, it is a Nimbus 2000. It flies so fast that it is impossible to take a photograph without chopping the top of your head off. Now where is that damn Golden Snitch?”
