What was that?
A school owl just swooped into the room. Of all times to get a message...wait, it's from Poppy. It seems that since she has no patients just now, she was doing a routine inspection of her supply closet. Her spare thermometer fell off the shelf and broke, and do I have an extra I could bring to her?
A thermometer? She's interrupting my duties as head of Slytherin house to bring a thermometer up to the hospital wing? Where she's in the supply closet...alone...with no one within earshot...
Well. I suppose that really is more urgent than guarding the bathroom. I mean, it is critically important that she be able to take temperatures. Maybe I should even have her take mine...I sense my mercury is rising even now.
