NINE years ago

The first Harry Potter movie came out NINE years ago this week. I watched it that week with many of you (Beth, Jennifer, Debbie, Liz, Tim and maybe Irene, I believe).
It simultaneously seems that it can't be nine years ago-- I haven't changed that much, nine years can't have past-- and ridiculous to think it was only nine years ago and not a lifetime.
As Abby and Jenny pointed out back when book 7 was published, Harry Potter has felt like being part of something greater than us; that we are actually part of a cultural phenomena unlikely to be repeated.
I'm going to see the new movie next week and miss all of you.
I'll be sad next summer, and very excited.

We're going to go see it to. HOW HAS IT BEEN 9 YEARS!?!?!?!?!?!


It can't be that long - I refuse to believe that.

What did you guys think of the movie?

Beth, I absolutely loved your plethora of ?!?!?!?!?! in your comment.
