Flipping channels, I came across Hogwarts Express pulling into a station. It was some promotional event.
The interviewer caught hold of 12-year-old Emma WatsonEmma Watson, aka Hermione Granger. I felt sorry for her. Imagine being part of this hysterical media event. I hoped she hadn't had media training.
'Would you like to sing or dance, maybe make a CD?'
She answered these idiotic questions coolly and professionally.
'Who's your favorite singer?'
I found myself thinking, Please, anyone but Britney…
'Alanis Morissette.'
The interviewer didn't even blink.
'Would you like to meet her? You could, you know! You're famous…'
I sighed, relieved.
