The house elf loves me

… or I can’t explain it anyhow else.

The house elf is an invisible semi-imagined creature that lives in our house and does all sorts of strange things. Many of these things are small and don’t matter too much for me to spend time talking about them. But there is one particular action that the house elf repeats from year to year and by which it tells me that it loves me.

I am talking about pocket filling.

When the season changes from cold to warm, I put all my warm clothes far away in the closet. Before doing so, I usually check the pockets for anything I might have forgotten. Just in case you know.

And every year, when the season changes from warm to cold and I bring back my warm clothes from the closet, I find interesting stuff in my pockets. Usually, it’s money. Small amounts, like a pound or five. Or maybe some change. Once I found a lighter I have been looking for for a long time.

Every time I found something in the pockets, I had this dual feeling. I wasn’t sure if I forgotten to check the pockets or if the house elf put it there.

But this year, the house elf wanted to solve my doubts. It put some a chocolate bar in the pocket of my jacket. And I would never ever forget a chocolate bar in the jacket. And just to make the statement solid, it put a really strange chocolate bar in my pocket. It was of some French brand and it was one of those that I haven’t even seen. Wow!

So, here I am with all the seriousness I can put in this statement: Thank you, Dear House Elf! I hope we’re good neighbors to you. Please, keep watching over us.

  1. – :) So it’s French house elf. Now need to establish how old is she/he (I cannot say it :) Because in time when she puts 5 CYP in your pocket she could think is approx. equal to 5 A Louis D’Or 1717 (~20K CYP :)

  2. Vips,

    hehe :) There are several understandings of the “elf” concept. In “Lord of the rings” elves aren’t short at all. :) I guess this provides for some choice in the matter.


    yes, it was delicious. :)

  3. I hadn’t considered the LOTR elves until you brought it up! I don’t think I’d mind the age so much – it certainly didn’t show on Arwen and Legolas but then again, that’s movies for you!

  4. Well, if I remember the LOTR book correctly, elves were immortal, unless, of course, somebody killed them. That’s another concept to consider when wishing for such a thing. As much as I want to have a long life, I am not so sure, I would be comfotable with the eternity. :)
