Share Your World – On Luck and Happiness

This week’s Share Your World X Harry Potter 2-part series by Melanie and Roger Shipp includes a set of questions that are related to/inspired by the Half-Blood Prince.

For the HP questions:

You have just been gifted a magic wand that specializes in completing household chores. You can request the completion of only two household chores. Which chores would you assign your wand to complete?

Washing the dishes and doing the laundry or wiping down grocery items/any delivery.

At the local Wizards-R-Us store there was a sale on handshake shockers, instant darkness pellets, and levitation pills. Which of these ‘party thrillers’ are you more likely to purchase?

Levitations pills for sure. Handshakes are pretty much obsolete, and I don’t care much for the shadows, instant or not.

In the alley behind Wizards-R-Us, there was a tradesman selling a Love Potion. The sales pitch was too much for you and you yielded and purchased one vial. What do you do with it?

Save it as Christmas present for someone who needs it by then (wink) or as a white elephant gift exchange.

You are the Great Clearinghouse Winner of a new ‘good luck’ potion – Felix Felicis. It has to be used within the next thirty days or its potency becomes diminished. Do you use it? Do you give it to a friend in need?

I’ll use it on several occasions within 30 days and on those days, do all sorts of things requiring luck i.e. buy lottery/raffle tickets, sell high-ticket items, apply for visas, emigrate/immigrate etc. That’d be an interesting experiment, see how effective it is.

For the muggle/mundane questions:

If everyone spoke their mind, would this world be a better or worse place?  Why?

For some reason, this made me think of a Twitter-dominated world and that’s not a pretty picture for me. But in an ideal world where people are not given into anti-intellectualism/anti-education or at least word vomit/verbal diarrhea, and actually use their voice to discuss important/relevant issues/causes or contribute to the conversation towards reaching a better understanding of things, what a bright world that would be.. 🎼

Can achieving nothing make a person happy?

This makes me think Dolce Far Niente. There’s joy in that, in moderation. But if that’s a life goal (to not achieve anything) then I suppose it’s possible.

How do you know if you love someone enough to marry them?

When the idea of being with that person for life or at least a long time feels right or good and not repulsive at all (lol). And what’s out there no longer (or not at all) changes your mind about it.

  1. Thank you so much for Sharing Your World! Levitation pills are selling out (there’s been one who chose the darkness option), but otherwise EVERYONE wants to fly apparently…. or levitate.. uh. I like the idea of ‘pleasant idleness..’…now to me? That’s very worthy! Have a fabulous week!
