“You haven’t read the Harry Potter books yet?”
My best friend clapped her hands with delight, her eyes shining, and stopped in her tracks. We were taking a leisurely twilight stroll through my old neighborhood in New York, but suddenly she looked like her heart was racing with joy.
In fact, she looked positively ecstatic.“I am so happy for you,” she said. “You get to experience it all for the first time!”
And of course she was right. There’s nothing like discovering a magical new world for the first time. It’s an experience you can never replicate, no matter how hard you try.
