Bend It Like Potter

(My Dad is trying to explain the football world cup to my sister.)

Dad: “…And Scotland haven’t qualified for the world cup for a very, very long time.”

Sister: “No, Scotland were in it this year right?”

Dad: “What?”

Sister: “Yeah, they got beaten by Luxembourg. And Wales lost to Uganda.”

Me: *looking up from my book* “You’re talking about the Quidditch world cup from the fourth Harry Potter book.”

Dad: “I’m not sure what’s worse, that she confused Harry Potter with real life or that you twigged that was what she’d done!”
