My day is made

I have never felt so good for months. Yippeeeeeeee !
Remember I mentioned in some post ages back that I’d seen HP3. Okie, here's a nice story.

My friends and I had gone to Rex to catch the evening show but as usual someone had goofed up and we were one ticket short. And being a Sunday it was HOUSEFULL too. Since I had already seen it once, I’d offered to go back home when we chanced to find a family who had an extra ticket. The only problem was that the seats were not in the same row so I thought I might as well not take it. But when this chweeet, adorable 11 year old walked upto me and said "Uncle, we have an extra ticket and you should see this movie, HP movies are so cool" I was floored (the Uncle part hurt though)

The next two hours were simply amazing. Sirisha (dats her name) without any exaggeration on my part was a raving, mad fan of JKR and the HP series. She was literally sitting at the edge of her seat and chatting with me incessantly, giving me every single detail about the scene. When I was groping for the name for that bus which helps Harry when he escapes from home, she rebuked me for forgetting such "simple things" and educated me on the "Knight bus and its conductor Stan". However I did get my revenge later in the second half when she forgot the name of the "Whomping Willow" :-) When the Marauding Map first made its appearance in the movie she almost shrieked in delight. I was really sorry when the movie ended coz I have never had such intelligent company for a movie date. As we descended down, her father exchanged pleasantries and chatted up with me. We also exchanged cards (I’ve lost his)

And then it happened today afternoon. Am reproducing the mail here
