Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE LOVE LOVE YA fantasy.
People who know me well know that I can quote from my favorite young adult books very easily.
And I know that I have books in my head far more often than I let everyone else know about it :-)

So it's not surprising that the VERY FIRST THING I thought of in association with our weekly doodle prompt-- CONK--was from a YA fantasy book. And it also happens to be one that most of you would be familiar with.

"...Peeves the Poltergeist was worth two locked doors and a trick staircase if you met him when you were late for class. He would drop wastepaper baskets on your head, pull rugs from under your feet, pelt you with bits of chalk, or sneak up behind you, invisible, grab your nose, and screech, "GOT YOUR CONK!"
From page 132 of my paperback copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
