Mad Lib!

This is the story to go along with the list of words from my last post. It's funny in places, but it's odd how boring some of my choices ended up being! Oh well, here it is anyway:

I have to tell you about the dreamy time I had in Diagon Alley last weekend! My friend Patonga Pinkstone and I decided that we really needed some new cable needles and had to get over to Diagon Alley immediately. Patonga put on her belt because it was bright and did not want to get a cold. I grabbed my notebook and we headed to the trains.

While waiting for our train to Diagon Alley, we chatted with Prendolyn the Weird and Victoria Pettigrew who were planning to visit Gringott’s. Victoria did not want to go alone because she was collecting a kitten that was very adequate and brought Pren along for her excellence in protecting spells.

The train arrived and off we went. Our seats were very comfortable and the train sped along towards Diagon Alley and we were there in a flash! Before heading to Yrsa’s Yarn Shoppe, we went into an armchair that sells slimy ice cream!!! As we neared the armchair, we noticed quite a lot of commotion! The armchair owner had set the ice cream-making machine and it had gotten stuck! Ice cream was descending everywhere! I ducked as a cream-filled ice cream came descending right at me and it exhausted into Professor Snape’s sock just as he walked through the door! A cinnamon ice cream did a nose dive and splattered all over the door most elaborately! We made it out of the store just as an ice cream frog and a kettle of Bertie Bott’s every flavor beans collided in a rainstorm of goo!

Since we were still vertical, we walked the thirteen blocks over to Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor! I decided on a cone with chocolate ice cream and Patonga got the hot fudge sundae with extra sour cream! Yummy! Professor Snape had made his way over here as well after the incident at the armchair shoppe and had chosen a lemonade float.

After that, we passed Gringott’s and headed to Yrsa’s Yarn Shoppe! I tried not to look at the beautiful skeins of silk and bamboo and wool and instead, headed toward the cable needles while Patonga stopped to meander the stitch markers. I found a buttery cable needle made out of steel and made my purchase. Patonga kept hedging between the cable needle she came for and a pattern for a blanket. She chose the blanket pattern and we walked back towards the train station just in time to make the 12:30 train.

After sitting down, we noticed Pren and Victoria were on the train as well. Victoria looked quite sweet to have the kitten with them. Pren however did not look sweet at all. While waiting to go into the vault, a baby goblin waiting in line with his Mommy had slept on Pren getting tacos all over her clean robes! The smell really was just horrendous! Apparently, Pren's protecting spells don’t work well against tacos!! We made our way to a less smelly compartment and talked about how we were going to explain missing Professor McGonagall’s lecture on the valuable ways hippogryffs are working with the Department of Mysteries in solving unsolvable iPods!
