Randomness in Five Parts

Ginny sat down next to Harry, putting her legs across his lap. Ron and Hermione were at the Wireless, arguing over which station to listen to.

"Hey you two," Ginny said. "How about we play a game or something? Let's not listen to the Wireless tonight."

"Alright," Ron shrugged.

"What should we play?" Hermione asked from one of the plush chairs.

"I've got a game, but it's kind of…" Harry broke off and made a face.

"Kind of what, mate?" Ron asked, taking a sip of beer.


"What is it?" Ginny asked, pulling her feet away from him before he could tickle her.

"What you do is, you think up really funny rhetorical questions, and we all have to give funny answers. Minimal logic involved."

"Wicked," Ron grinned. "Why don't you go first, since it's your game."


Harry took a bite of a Cauldron Cake and thought for a moment. Then, with a smirk, he asked,

"If a cow laughed really hard, would milk come out of its nose?"

The other three went into fits of laughter. When they finally composed themselves, Harry was still grinning.

"Laugh all you want," he said. "One of you has to answer."

"No," Hermione smiled.


"No, milk wouldn't come out of its nose. Cottage cheese would; it's warmer inside a cow…"

Harry laughed right along with his friends as Hermione ate a few chips with an air of smug satisfaction.
