Mary Cattermole closed her eyes, pressing her palms to her forehead. They had told her apprenticing with the Muggle-Worthy Excuse Committee would give her an excellent foothold into the Ministry, and with her muggle-born cultural knowledge, why, she was just what they needed.
Boy, did they ever.
She quietly approached her mentor. “Sir? I don't think this will work for explaining the broomstick joyriding incidents. UFOs are not a typical explanation to the average muggle.”
“What? They're clearly unidentified flying objects for muggles.”
“Yes, I know. But trust me -- try something more along the lines of unannounced weather balloons.”
