What is the matter Minerva?
I don't know whether to be disappointed or relieved that you do not know.
With all the chaos over Alastor's injury don't be too upset with whatever it is I don't know. Will you tell me? I'd be more than happy to listen and ease whatever is troubling you.
I was thinking as much before I responded a little bit ago. I just didn't want to say it in case it wasn't. Happy Birthday Minerva! I won't ask your age since that is probably is what's bothering you, or not. I don't know. Everythings so ... mixed up with me.
Oh, no it's not the age that bothers me. But I digress, how are you coping? I daresay you have more occupying your mind than a simple birthday. Any word on Alastor?
I've just updated my log about Alastor's condition. Though I have to say I am on a minute by minute mood swing. One minute I am glad that Alastor is on the mend and happy that I'll be returning to Hogwarts tomorrow, but then the next minute I worry that he might relapse and then my resolve to come back dissipates and I wish to stay longer just to make sure he gets well enough to return to leave St. Mungo's.
Well, give him our love. Though I suppose he gets enough of it from you.
Happy Birthday Minerva!!!
*insert strained smile here*
I've already given him your regards and yes he does get that from me. I won't bother to deny it. I have to say though I wish now I haven't spoiled him. Too many jokes about his relapsing the moment I leave. Honestly.
Actually, he and I have been discussin the possiblity of his coming to teach here at Hogwarts if my request to Albus about establishing Dueling Club as a class goes through. That way Severus won't be put out with having to supervise the club and then the students can be taught new things in a more controlled and gradual setting. What do you think of that, Minerva?
I think Severus would rather teach it, Poppy. Though it's always a possibility.
He might, but from the way he talks you'd get the impression he didn't want to be there.
When have I ever said or implied I did not wish to participate?
It was a guess, that just came from what I thought to be your tone. It's an idea, and it's mostly upon you to decided whether or not it'll even be taken into consideration.
I have to tell you, it was mainly out of a selfish motivation to have Alastor in Hogwarts and away from more possible attacks, and that isn't a good enough reason.
Just tell me what you'd like to see. If you still wish it to be a club where you'll supervise, by all means, it is your "baby" if not, let me know. I didn't mean anything bad about you in suggestion the other course of action just so you know.
People, please, this thread is to wish Minerva a happy birthday, not to argue.
So everyone! All together now!
*beggins singing happy birthday*
Yes, Serena it is Minerva's birthday to which I already told her a nice Happy Birthday.
It's an act, Poppy, surely you know that by now.
Happy Birthday, Professor!
Thank you, Miss Lovegood.
