Shuntbumps survives to this day as a game for children. (Wizards apparently encourage their children to be jerks to each other.)
Remembering things that happened in your childhood (or just in the past) can be difficult, but photographs have a special way of reminding us of certain things or certain events, maybe even making us feel as if we're "back there" and part of things again.
This week, we'd like everyone to share a picture that reminds them of any of the broomstick games
played during the Quidditch Olympics! The subject could be any of the games we've already played, or one that's planned for future weeks - so, namely, there's Broom Racing, Creaothceann, Aingingein, Swivenhodge, Cascade, Team Seeking, Shuntbumps, Quodpot, Stichstock, and (of course) Quidditch!
You can be as literal or as figurative as you'd like to be when choosing the subject of your photograph - but be sure to include a sentence or two explaining how your picture relates to one of our Olympic events!
For example, here's mine!
This is a picture I took in the atrium of the physical sciences building at my university. Technically there are 118 tetrahedrons, each modeled after and representing one of the elements of the periodic table, but the way they're all suspended overhead reminds me of the charmed boulders from Creaothceann!
