That Awkward Moment When.....
I find this outrageously funny, and I am preeetty sure that all of my fellow Harry Potter fans will agree with me on this... but it also rings a truth with me. Not that I ever truly believed that I could flush myself down a toilet and end up in the ministry of magic or anything (I was old enough when the HP series came out to know better)... but like, we all have things in our lives that just shattered us when we found out they weren't real.
For me, it was finding out that I wasn't really going to turn into a Sailor Scout. Because like, I effin TRAINED. HARD. and i was SOOOOO ready for the day a random cat with a crescent moon on its forehead would find me on the streets... and just incase it didn't recognize me, i regularly wore my hair in "meatballs" (just like sailor moon for you n00bz). And eventually, it kind of dawned on me that I wasn't magical... and that kind of sucked. Luckily I never tried flushing myself down the toilet, but I spent HOURS training. Not just playing either, but going HARD. And sometimes my friends would call and I would tell them that Sailor Jupiter was over helping me train and I couldn't talk for very long.
but like, even now... that WEIRDS ME THE EFFFFFFF OUT. I always thought they were called ribs because they were meant to like LOOK like ribs and it was a funny play on words.. but nope. they are the literal ribs of the animal. barf. but this is coming from the girl who thought that meat (any type) was from a meat sac of an animal. I had NOOOOOOOO idea til like grade 10 that meat was the MUSCLE of an animal. yuck.
