[We are nearly done HP7. Ron’s Auntie Muriel has been an ongoing source of discussion – why she is so snippy, what made her that way, etc.]
Mummy. Auntie Muriel is a witch, but she is not a very nice one.
That is true! She’s a bit of a fussbudget, isn’t she?
Fussssssbudget. Ha! [Beat] What’s a fussbudget?
It’s someone who likes things a certain way – and gets cranky if everything isn’t just so.
Ah. I am a bit of a fussbudget sometimes, too. But that’s ok, I am growing up. I will clearly grow out of that.
