One thing that bothers me, though, is that even the Professors have succumbed to arguing over things publicly. If we can't keep ourselves in order, how on Earth are we supposed to keep our children together?
I know exactly. It's been so crazy here.
It's completely unprofessional. If the Professors must argue about anything they should do it in the privacy of the Staff Room, or their own rooms.
I have to agree with you there. It's a wonder I was able to keep myself away from all this. How have you been holding up though? Rolanda's been a little hermit like. She's been avoiding everyone for two days.
I'm feeling better. I think I have a slight cold, do you have anything you could send me?
Rolanda has an excuse, the poor thing...
I've just the thing for you. Come on up and I'll have it ready and waiting for you. Poor dear. I wish she'd talk to me. I've no clue what's been going on with her.
I'll be up there in a minute. Thank you.
You are most welcome, Minerva. I'll be waiting.
I'm alright now, Poppy. I wasn't feeling very social for a time there.
Oh, good. I was exceedingly worries about you m'dear. Had enough laps around the quidditch field then?
Hardly, Poppy. I could never fly too much. You should know that by now.
I know that you were born with a broom attached to you *winks* ...
Now you're being ridiculous, Poppy.
Yes, but isn't it fun?
Not really. *sigh* I'm sorry, I keep ending up out of sorts. This is not a good start to the school year.
Well then I shall ask the headmaster if we both can have a day off in which you and I will go into Hogsmeade and we'll have a day of leisure and fun. You need it and I need to stretch my legs and get out.
Oh, yes, that's just what I need. And I really need to talk to you as it is.
Lovely. I shall go to the headmasters office before dinner and request that we have a day off.
You are most welcome m'dear. If he does grant us permission I know where we'll both head: to the quidditch supplies shop *winks* and we'll talk about the Harpies and the Appleby Arrows.
Oh, you mean how the Harpies are going to cream the Arrows in their next match? ;-)
*glares* They will not. The Appleby's will triumph!
*snort* Only in your dreams.
