If I were Harry Potter for a day: What would I do if I were Harry Potter for a day? Hard to say. The mere thought of being in his shoes is heady enough. The witchcraft, the wizardry! It would definitely be a welcome change from our current education system. I'd study Herbology and potion making instead of algebra and geometry. I'd ride brooms instead of school buses! What a refreshing change! The thing about Harry Potter is that he can't use magic in the muggle world. That's one thing that I'd do, use magic in the muggle world. Just for fun! Imagine the muggles surprised out of their wits to see me flying over the moon on my broomstick, like a cross between Santa Claus and a witch on Halloween night! I'd probably be labelled as another UFO sighting! That would be really funny! But, fun apart, magic should be use for good and Harry does a super job of it! I'd obviously keep that up. Killing Voldemort would be my topmost priority. I would get all the wizards and witches at Hogwarts and from other places, to pool in their special powers and create a new powerful being that would vanquish Voldemort. Something along the lines of our desi Goddess Durga- a combination of several powers to kill someone evil. Yes, if I were Harry Potter for a day, I'd have fun and do good service by killing Voldemort. That way, in the last book, Harry would still be alive! Sigh! If wishes were horses….
