Harry Potter is in Starbucks.
At least, it looks like him.
He even has an English accent.
Which is as charming as it is annoying.
He is explaining the theory of method acting to a girl in her teens who appears to be as dumb as a stick.
And he knows it.
For some reason, I watched the last Harry Potter on DVD the other night.
That is an odd series.
The one thing I found really interesting, is that they kept all the same actors in all the films, and not just the extras, everyone, except for the first Dumbledore, who died.
And, a lot like life, everyone grew up.
Some did that whole growing up thing better than others.
One of the main actors, Emma Watson, grew up into a stunning young lady.
Her love interest Rupert Grint, however, did not.
That has to be a tough love scene.
I haven’t seen anything as uncomfortable as their love scene since the movie Contact.
Jodie Foster, who I am firmly convinced does not like men, despite the fact that she is an incredible actress, has a make out scene with Matthew McConaughey.
It was like watching a small child eat beats.
Lips peeled back, eyes a little wild, really uncomfortable.
Same thing in Harry Potter.
I didn’t watch any of the films until the last one came out.
I always figured they were kids books/films.
And they are, kind of.
Well done, however, in that almost Disney fashion that appeals to adults as well as kids.
Now what, you may ask, does this have to do with the English kid hitting on the girl in Starbucks.
I operate on random thoughts for the most part.
Unlike Harry Potter here, he is operating on a completely thought out seduction plan.
And she is buying it, hook, line, and sinker.
And why not?
He is not exactly a great looking guy.
He better have some game.
His only issue is that, unless he is planning sex in the bathroom, he would have to take her somewhere else.
And that takes too long.
That is the tragedy of youth.
Never see the big picture.
The sense of urgency is there, but a hard on does not think straight.
And yet, when I was that age, I can remember not just my plan of seduction, as it were, but I would make sure that if the best case scenario did happen, we would be in a place that it could happen.
I was famous for the “No one else home” drop by.
And I have run from parents before.
God I miss being a teenager.
