Is my son Harry Potter or the Half-Blood Prince?

My son, Dave, is a writer. He's studying creative writing at the University of Canberra. (Put away that fact, and the assumptions flowing from it about my age, for a later date.)

Today, he lined up at the apponted "witching hour" to get his pre-paid copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince from a local bookshop. He says that, in retrospect, he need not have done it that way, as the lines were longer for the pre-paid than for the walk-ins. (Put that away for comparison purposes, too.)

The funny thing is that he met three other people there for the same purpose, and now has a photograph of the four of them that will probably be a better momento than the book itself.

Anyway, back to the story....

My prince (son) has had almost 7 hours of reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince so far, that I can account for, and has read just over half the book.

His blood is still running true!

That must make him Harry Potter rather than the Half-Blood Prince.

I expect that he will not be visiting his girl friend this evening, in order to finish it in one blow. Then again, he's thoroughly hen-pecked, so she might just win the day (well, evening) after all.
