Harry Potter Moment of the Week (2)

Time for the Harry Potter Moment of the Week, hosted by Lunar Rainbows. This week’s topic is….

Would you rather take a class taught by Lockhart or get detention with Filch?

I am currently reading Chamber of Secrets with my sons so this is very fitting. We actually just read the part where Harry and Ron serve detention tonight! Lockheart is unbearably annoying to me. One of my very least types of people in the world are vapid narcissists.

With that being said, I still think I would rather take a class with him. The great thing about narcissists is that generally you don’t have to actually pay attention to them, you just need to appear to be paying attention.

I pretend to listen to people all the time, especially when I’m reading and my husband continues to talk to me about things like, “who got into the baseball hall of fame this year”.


Flich is just such a miserable old miser. I am someone who absorbs the emotions of people around me. Spending four hours with Filch would probably turn me into a maniac.

UGH Sorry this post is so late, btw. My 5-year-old has a stomach bug so this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down today.

Thanks for reading!

  1. LOL! You’re so right about just pretending to pay attention. Oddly, I think it’d be a little relaxing to be around someone that you don’t actually have to interact with more than the occasional nod and ‘yeah’. I too tend to soak up the emotions of those around me so yes being around Filch would be difficult. He seems very unhappy with life. I went with doing the detention with Filch though on this one.

  2. Filch really is a miserable human being so I get your answer here^^ I’m just hoping I wouldn’t get detention much so I’d see much less of Filch than I’d have to see Lockhart LOL! I worry that I might die from a severe eye-roll when it comes to Lockhart XD Thanks for participating in Harry Potter Moment of the Week! xx

    • Haha! I totally understand. I didn’t take the time commitment of being in class into consideration, but I still would have to pick Lockhart I think. 🙂 Thank you for hosting, it’s a fun feature!
