Yesterday, a few minutes after I came back from lunch, one of the security guards came up and asked why I didn’t tell her about the dog. I told her I had just been on break and didn’t know about the dog. She grundled off to the elevator to go to the Korean Gallery, and just as the door closed, a group of people came around the corner, one of them a lady in a blue t-shirt carrying a big red bag, out of the top of which peeked a medium sized black poodle.
The security guard who was posted at the door spoke to them for a couple minutes in Tagalog, then the people went downstairs to the rest of the Museum. Security Guard A came back and I told her the door security guard spoke to them, I assumed that since they went further into the museum that there was a good reason for having the dog. Well, no, they just thought it was fine to have a dog.
So, my not having had a transaction in hours I locked my screen and went after them to see if they left, or if they just went to the other building. I didn’t see them on the first floor and when I got to the top of the escalator to the second I walked over to the guard stationed there. I asked her if she had seen a lady with a blue t-shirt and a big red bag and… She then finished my sentence, eyes wide, “with a dog in the bag?”
She had seen them a couple hours prior and had just figured that if they had gotten to the second floor with the dog then clearly that was okay. In fact all of the security guards who saw the dog decided someone would have said something if they weren’t supposed to have a dog.
And that is exhibit D about how ridiculous my job is.
Cleaning up pose idea sheets
The irony is strong
Proposition: Muggles know wizards and witches exist. And they know about the Statute of Secrecy
Evidence 1: The Dursleys aren’t afraid of people finding out magic exists, they’re afraid of people finding out they associate with Magic-users.
Sub evidence 1: a Wand must be recognizable for them to worry that their neighbors will recognize it (OotP)
Sub evidence 2: They know who wizards communicate before the dinner with the Masons, and they don’t want people to see frequent owl sightings coming from an upstairs bedroom (CoS)
Evidence 2: Hermione isn’t surprised Magic exists, she’s surprised the things she can do is magic (SS)
Counterargument 1: Harry didn’t know magic existed
Response: The Dursleys wanted to minimize and appearance or information regarding magic
Counterargument 2: The Prime Minister didn’t know about magic
Response: It’s an open secret, but that still doesn’t mean everyone knows it. and as the Government has Muggle things to worry about they don’t generally focus on the Magic side.
Final Evidence: Wizards and Witches, when they walk among Muggles dress outlandishly and are easy to spot, but the authorities are only ever called when there’s an actual disturbance.(GoF) Witches and Wizards seem to believe they are passing quite believably, but if Muggles knew that Witches and Wizards exist, but that they’re trying to hide, they might just give them their space to make them feel they’re doing a bang-up job hiding
Last night (well, just now actually) I had a dream. I was working as a maid for a wealthy family, but I had to do part of the dinner service because the Queen was coming to visit. During the dinner the Queen proposed a riddle, and I was the only one who could solve. So impressed was she that she decided to hire me as a gift to one of her granddaughters as a lady-in-waiting.
At the meeting a royal scientist came running into the room and handed the Queen a memo. She read it over and smiled, then announced that I was actually the Granddaughter of Edward VIII and as such (somehow) the next in line for the throne ahead of Charles. The royals present then shuffled around so that we were standing in the proper order.
Then three telekinetic bears levitated the main course of the lunch out of the window and I went chasing after them, Suddenly finding myself a princess, I was, of course, able to communicate to them through song. When Royal horsemen arrived I was able to calm the horses through song as well. Then I walked with the bears back into the castle, had them curtsy for the Queen and announced that they were to be my official guards.
I did not see a man taking his peacock for a jog this morning. It was just a dog that looked like a peacock. But still thought I should immortalize the image
