Professor Minerva McGonagall
The worst part about teaching...
Is dealing with the hormones.
-Professor M. McGonagall
I think you should. Demand payment for your time. You should get paid if they're keeping you up at 12:30, when you need to be up and teaching their little sprogs at seven.
Six. I actually shower, unlike you, Severus.
And if I demanded payment, one way or another I guarantee that my mother would find out, and then two days later I'd get a Howler from her furiously exclaiming at the gall I must have to ask for payment when I don't need the extra money. And then she'd go on and on about my lack of family, how i never visit, etc.
I'd rather skip all of that and simply do the work.
I shower. I want you to do what I do all day in the lab, and have hair that isn't full of fumes, and damaged beyond repair, nor is it multi colored, unlike some of our less professional staff.
You're how old, Minerva? Tell your mother to go fly a kite. I think we should ask Prof. Flitwick to come up with an anti-Howler charm.
I was born this way. It isn't unprofessional. It's what I am.
Was the need to change yourself everyday born with you as well?
I would say so. I've always done it.
You and I both know that there are Potions and charms for hair like yours, Severus, and if you want to be unconventional, even Muggle shampoos. So don't give me that.
I'll be 75 on the 22, thank you. And my mother isn't just any mother. She's a McGonagall. If you think I have a temper and can be annoyingly stubborn, you should meet my mother. No wonder my father died early.
I'm going to bed. I'll see everyone tomorrow.
Firstly, there is a potion in my hair- which is why it looks the way it does. I wash it out, but its reapplied the next day.
Everyone's mother is a shrill annoying nag, Minerva. Everyone.
Can't you find a Potion that makes it look less greasy?
Yes, I'll agree with that. But have you met my mother, Severus?
