fred & george.

so i'm rereading all of the harry potter books straight through. something i've been wanting to do but haven't yet. i'm in the third book {which was always my favorite when i first started the books} and fred and george just crack me up...they're something else. here's a part early in the book when harry meets up with the weasleys before returning to hogwarts...

Percy, however, held out his hand solemnly as though he and Harry had never met and said, "Harry. How nice to see you."
"Hello, Percy," said Harry, trying not to laugh.
"I hope you're well?" said Percy pompously, shaking hands. It was rather like being introduced to the mayor.
"Very well, thanks --"
"Harry!" said Fred, elbowing Percy out of the way and bowing deeply. "Simply splendid to see you, old boy --"
"Marvelous," said George, pushing Fred aside and seizing Harry's hand in turn. "Absolutely spiffing."
Percy schowled.
"That's enough, now," and Mrs. Weasley.
"Mum!" said Fred as though he'd only just spotted her and seizing her hand too. "How really corking to see you --"
