Then my mother said she wanted to see it and I stared at her like she had lobsters coming out of her ears.
After that, we went to the library and I did what I usually did and combed the children's section for something to read. On the very bottom shelf, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone caught my eye. The entire reason I decided to check it out and read it was because, unlike in the trailer with all the kids wearing these weird cloaks that made me think of a brainwashed cult, Harry looked like a normal kid (despite the broomstick, unicorn, castle, three-headed dog, and the scar on his forehead). I finished it in less than a week, and I wanted to get my hands on the second book as soon as possible, and I had already started it by the time we went to see the first movie in theaters. It was a complete surprise because at the time I thought the movie had already left theaters because it had taken me so long to actually want to see the movie; one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me. Both my sister and I were bouncing up and down. Since my sister was sitting on my father's shoulders, he didn't really like that very much. He made her get down, then she bounced up and down on the ground with me. In the theaters I could've sworn I saw someone wearing a turban standing at the back of the theater, but as soon as the movie ended and I looked in the same direction, the person was gone so I'm not sure if it was a working of my imagination or not.
