Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  • 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?
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • 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?


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?

The first chore would be keeping the bathroom clean.

The second, once I taught the wand to read, it would become my head cook! I would still have to do the dishes and take out the trash- but I have a dishwasher, and the trach bin is next to the kitchen door. So, it’s a win!

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?

If the ‘levitation pills’ were good for a five hour flight, it’s a no-brainer. Day-trips … here I come!

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?

I’ve seen the effects of ‘obsessive love’. I don’t want no part in it!

But, since apparently I have already purchased it … (the answer will remain a secret. I don’t want to be held accountable for its after-effects.)

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’d take a sip each morning and drive immediately to the gas station to purchase lottery tickets.

I’d play the lottery for the next thirty days.
