I Just Realized…

I read Harry Potter 1 when I was ten. He was eleven. He became thirteen before I turned eleven. I’ve been catching up with him since:

There were a few months before Book 6 came out when I was 16 while he was 15. Then I had about a year and a half where I was 17 (then 18) while he was still 16.

But in book 7, Rowling ends by making him THIRTY-SIX.

All told, I’ve had about two years of being older than him. He will have had twenty-four years of being older than me by the time I’m 36. It will take me until I’m fifty eight to have been older than him longer than he will have been older than me (the first ten years of my life notwithstanding, and not regarding his actual canonical birthday in 1980).

Eesh..
