I’ve abandoned my ancient ways, and finally broke down to become...one of them. That’s right, one of those people who actually use a sewing machine.
However, I’m not that hardcore yet
Now I’ve just got to make friends. I’ve decided the safest way is to take Hagrid’s approach to meeting hippogriffs:
I’ve decided sewing machines, like hippogriffs are proud creatures.
Dealing with Proud Creatures, Tips from Hagrid:
1. They are easily offended, don’t insult one, it might be the last thing you do
2. Wait for them to make the first move, you’ve got to be polite!
3. Then bow
4. Hopefully it bows back, or else STEP AWAY
So far it hasnt tried to attack me...but it's actually just giving me a false sense of security
