A Duo of Lists

There sits a pad of paper, stuck neatly to the front of a refrigerator with magic. The edges are perfectly aligned with the sides of the appliance. Round, neat writing fills the lines, and each page is labeled: “To Do/Purchase”.

On August 15th, 2002, the list reads:

treats for Crooks -fish and shrimp
purchase Ministry robes! - ask how many sets Malkins recommends?
alter robes
new quills
bottle of wine – gift to partner!
new file folders
peanut butter

There sits a journal on a cluttered desk next to an empty sandwich plate, the spiky, cramped writing nearly illegible. The most recent page is dated the 20th of August, 2002, and reads:

write second reply to Kingsley refusing to wear the hideous Ministry robes
pack laboratory, direct elves to send to Spinner's End
leave syllabus for replacement
basic foodstuffs for house: bread, milk, eggs, etc.
bottle of wine for whoever my unspeakable partner ends up being
Ogden's finest
wand polish
cauldron cleaner
