"Who is Harry Potter?". "Wait. Give me a minute. Ah yes, he's that farm boy in Illinois, right."

I always felt that I was a very big fan of the Harry Potter series. I though that I could ace any quiz based on the books. I was proved terribly wrong yesterday when I tried competing with a twelve year old who happened to have read the books a gazillion times. I felt that I could assert my supremacy over him and so I went to the Scholastic website and clicked the link for the Harry Potter quiz. My highest score was 5. His highest score was 17. He could have scored more but I told him a couple of wrong answers and his scoring run was unfortunately cut short. I could only cover my head in shame as he answered questions like “What happened to Neville’s chair when his wand slipped?” and “What did the mirror in Ron’s room say to Harry?” while I was struggling to remember the wood with which Harry’s wand was made. It was a really embarrassing experience considering the fact that I had boasted quite a lot about my Harry Potter knowledge. I always tend to make a complete buffoon of myself when I start bragging and so I decided to take the quiz a few minutes ago without any high hopes or any twelve year old sitting next to me. Here are the results of the quiz.
My awesome score
P.S: I rock!
