Conversations with the Husband

Me: What House are you?

Jeff: Ravenclaw. No doubt. I’m not ambitious enough to be Slytherin, and I don’t want to be a hero. So, no Gryffindor. Not nice enough to be Hufflepuff.

Me: I’m Hufflepuff, probably. Or Ravenclaw.

Jeff: You like secrets and knowledge. Ravenclaw.

Me: But I’m lazy. I don’t want to have to work for it. Slytherin would work if it were only about publishing. I’m ambitious about my writing career. But I have the duty and loyalty notes of Hufflepuff…  But you know what I find interesting? It’s those who identify with Gryffindor are the ones most offended when someone thinks they’re Hufflepuff. Not Slytherin.

Jeff: That’s because Slytherin realize that Hufflepuff is just a step away. They can be tempted with power in order to do good. Hufflepuff is just the other side of the coin from them.

Me: And because Hufflepuff is less likely to judge based on a archetype of your house in school.

Jeff: Yeah.

Me: I wonder if I could be a Huffleclaw.

Jeff: Or a Ravenpuff.

Me: Heh. Either would do.
