So, apparently the thing that I’ve been missing in my life is a patronus. Without one, it takes no time at all for the ever-increasing numbers of Dementors (otherwise known as “standardized testing companies”) to gorge on all of your happiness – leaving you in complete despair. A patronus can save you from this misery.
Not being a fictional wizard in a Harry Potter novel, I had no inkling I even have a patronus. But the lack of one pretty much explains the last forty years of my life.
Thanks to the newest quiz on Pottermore, however, I have identified my patronus, a white stallion, who I intend to summon the next time the Dementors threaten to sabotage my incredibly joyful personality and/or the next time I get stuck in traffic which, come to think of it, would be a particularly efficient use of my patronus as both a warder-offer and a better method of transportation…
