January 1st, 2022. A new dawn, a new day, a new year.

Determined to make the most of it from the start, at 11 AM sharp I grab my boyfriend Andrew and our ginger cat, Ron Weasley, to take a walk in the park. Having not partaken in the alcoholic beverages from last night’s celebrations, I’m not hungover in the least, but 8 hours of playing host did take their toll on my stamina, so fresh air seemed like a great fix. Granted, the boys don’t exactly share my enthusiasm. Ron, in particular, is almost jet-lagged from supervising us all night and foregoing his usual sleeping pattern. But they’ll come around. Such a beautiful day can’t be wasted.

“Okay, you were right. I do feel much better,” said my boyfriend upon arriving home, a few hours later.

“Always the tone of surprise. Of course, I’m right.”

“Yeah, yeah, don’t let it get to your head. So, honey, do you think you can contain yourself for half an hour until I whip us something to eat, or do we watch it now? It should already be live on HBO, right?” he asked, looking at his watch.

Hmm, tough question. I’m a huge Potterhead, so of course the 20-year anniversary special Return to Hogwarts is first on my priority list, but Andrew’s stomach was growling earlier and mine isn’t much…
