I thought that was pretty funny. I didn't take it as permission or an accusation. Siri, my phone spirit, made a determination based on what she thought I was saying, not on what I was doing.

The park opened at 8AM. At 8:15am (yes 8:15 in the morning) we saw a father and son eating chocolate chili ice cream cones.
I didn't have any butterbeer, chocolate frogs, ice cream, sugar quills, pumpkin juice, Draught of sugar water, treacle tarts, rock cakes, crisps or chips - all readily available throughout Diagon Alley. I do not know what I would have started with but I know that once I started I would not have stopped.
I had a hot cup of tea, a Quest bar (which I brought with me) and a pineapple spear.
The fantasy world of Diagon Alley includes the smaller, darker area of Knockturn Alley. It is filled with lots of shops devoted to the Dark Arts, including shops which specialize in objects that have curious or strong magical properties. Knockturn is a bit 'dodgy' (on purpose). It is the area where Slitherins would be happy to hang out. There is not a single sugary food or beverage sold in Knockturn Alley. Am I meant to be a Slitherin?

Think it is safer on line for the attractions? Taking the train to Hogwarts? At Kings Cross Station a queue line runs directly THROUGH a snack shop in case a guest needs a fix of sugar/salt/fat between London and Hogsmeade (which is only a ten minute trip).
Perhaps my phone-spirit Siri culled my words wisely. It might be sound thinking for me to remember Diet Gone Alley the next time I head to Diagon.
What do you think?
