universalSo there’s big news today out of Universal Orlando where the Wizarding World of Harry Potter announced that it has sold its one millionth butterbeer.  I’m thrilled for them.  I’m so bummed for me.  I’m bummed because I still haven’t made it to Hogwarts or Hogsmeade or any other place in the Wizarding Word of Harry Potter exhibit.

I had a family emergency last year when I was going to go and time has simply gotten away from me since.  There’s a chance I’ll be getting there in March but by then they’ll probably be selling their two millionth butterbeer.  I tell myself there’s hope, though.  Maybe they haven’t sold their one millionth chocolate frog yet.  I think I’d like that better than butterbeer anyway. (and for those who don’t know yet, butterbeer is a nonalcoholic, frothy drink which tastes a bit like shortbread and butterscotch and is served cold or frozen, or so I’m told, since as you’ve already read I haven’t had a sip yet)
