My grandfather just ask me to look on ebay for a new walking stick.
'Something fancy,' he said.
'Like an animal head?' I asked.
'Yeah, something in brass.'
'A dragon's head? Eagle?'
Grandad scratched his beard and considered carefully for three seconds. 'Hmm, Eagle, I think.'
'How about this one?' I pointed to my computer screen.
'Yes, that's nice.'
'Or what about a snake's head?
'Go on, then, have a look.'
Suddenly, as if seized by the epiphany of a lifetime, I grasped my keyboard tightly and yelled: 'HOW ABOUT A LUCIUS MALFOY SNAKE-HEAD PIMP CANE?!'
'Hmm, how much is that?'
Seriously, guys, I was so tempted to let him buy it. How cool would that be? My grandad with a replica Lucius cane? It even pulls out into a wand. Grandad was willing to pay 70 quid for it! If I could have been assured that it actually functioned as a comfortable walking stick and wasn't just prop, I would have let him.
