From an Outside View Vol. 2
Hello! Welcome to the second edition of "From an Outside View" where I, Meg Witter, will find Muggles on the streets who know nothing about Harry Potter and ask them questions about it! I hope this is as fun to read as it is to write!

Today's interviewee is a boy named Milo. Milo is around 13 years old and basically lives under a rock. He has heard of the Harry Potter franchise, but hasn't read the books or watched any of the movies. I decided to give him some semi-challenging questions because they should be answered with common sense...right??


Me: Hi Milo! The first question I have for you is what color is Ron Weasley's hair?


Milo: Did you say weasel? I like weasels I think they're super cool. And they're usually brown so I'm going to say brown!


Eh, it was worth a try.


Me: The correct answer here is ginger! That one was a bit of a toughie so we'll go for an easier one: How old is Harry Potter in The Philosopher's Stone?


Milo: Hm, well it's the first movie right? Assuming they age up every movie, I'm going to go with 11? First movie, 11 years old, makes sense right?


He actually got one correct! This was a shock to me since usually the interviewees get every question wrong!


Me: DING DING DING! That is correct! You're the first person to get a question correct in the short history of From an Outside View! The next question is: Name ONE position in Quidditch.


Milo: I don't exactly know what Quidditch is? It sounds like it involves a ditch so I will say excavator? You have to dig to get into a ditch right?


I see where Milo is coming from on this one given the name. It was legitimately a good guess in my books! Though I had to look up what an excavator was...


Me: Close enough, the postitions are keeper, chaser, beater, and seeker! Next question: What is the name of the castle where the books and movies take place?


Milo It's a castle so it has to be something super fancy. Wizard Fortress is my answer. The only thing I know about Harry Potter is that one "you're a wizard, Harry" line. Also fortress is a fancy name so that has to be it.


No... Just no... Though I was surprised that he knew something about Harry Potter! I am impressed with Milo nevertheless.


Me: The correct answer is Hogwarts! That one was also a hard one so I'll give you partial credit for explaining your line of reasoning! Alright last question: Who is the Half Blood Prince?


Milo: I have no clue on that one. Is it a character in the series?


Me: Yes it is a character.


Milo: I only know of Harry because we've been saying his name a lot so I will go with him.


Me: Unfortunately, that is incorrect. The correct answer is Severus Snape. Though I am very impressed with your answers today! It was so great meeting you, and I hope you have a great rest of your day!


Milo: Thank you for having me. You have a wonderful day aswell!


Thank you so much for reading this week's blog! Tune in next time where another Muggle will be in the trivia hot seat! Toodaloo!
