Miserable, Moping, Moaning

I have seriously felt like Moaning Myrtle the last few days.  It’s been horrible!  Study?  Moan.  Practise?  Moan.  Textbook?  Throw.  Exam?  Double moan!  However, I did finish an exam half hour ago and I think I did pretty well, meaning the hard part is over… for now.

“Oh sure, let’s all throw books at Myrtle because she can’t feel it!”

Anyway, this was a quick little idea inspired by the Wizarding World Theme Park (you know what I’m about to say, don’t you?).  Moaning Myrtle has been heard from the bathrooms there, and why should my bathroom be any different?  I’ve conjured up an audio file from the COS and GOF movies which features 4 minutes of her moaning voice.  I figure, if you have an old cd player, mp3 player, ipod, phone – some sort of musical device – you can copy the file onto, you’re all set!  If you’re using an old phone, make sure no one can ring you on it.

Leave the file on repeat and hide it somewhere in your toilet or bathroom (perhaps on a window sill).  I’m still trying to work out exactly how to hide my device, as I don’t want guests to become curious and start looking for the source of the audio.  I might hide it in a box or something they won’t be game to mess around with.  You don’t want the sound too loud as you don’t want it to carry out of the room, hence the volume on a small music device rather than speakers is perfect.  Of course, the problem is the batteries will only last so long, and so if you expect your party to continue for a lengthy few hours, you may want to delay turning the device on or have a few spare devices/batteries.

I’d considered having the wrock band, The Moaning Myrtles, playing in the bathroom instead, a song like Flushed or And Then I Died, but decided the real Moaning Myrtle would be better.  As always, it’s up to you.  Either way, no one will suspect your bathroom to have any party-features, so imagine the surprise of your first guest to use the bathroom (and your other guests will start to wonder why they’re laughing on the loo…)
