My eldest daughter came up to me the other day, with her plaintive, I’m-about-to-ask-for-something expression firmly affixed on her face. I braced myself.

“Mum, do you think I could get one of those science potions kits?”

Science potions!

I’m 98% sure she means a chemistry set, but I’m not going to correct her just yet. She starts kindergarten in a few weeks, so we’ve still got time. We can have fun with science potions for a solid three years before she needs to know the proper name, and by then the wonder should have settled in for good.

  1. I remember at some point realizing that Snape was, in a sense, the only teacher at Hogwarts who taught an actual real life subject. Potions class was just chemistry by another name.

    Also congratulations on winning! Yay!
