Everyone looks like an idiot

Parker was a bit spell bound. Stories of horses flying, and this seemed so mundane to the Jasmine.
He paused when she mentioned not knowing how to ride a bike. He had never thought that the people around him might not know how to do things that he knew, he just had assumed that everyone knew what he did, but more. Then she dropped a bombshell, her mom was muggleborn.
Muggle! That was the word he was trying to remember. So it wasn't just him and Sullivan. Parker wondered if there were completely different standards for those who had to live in both worlds. It seemed like it would be far more difficult since some of the rules didn't seem to apply in one or the other from his brief experiences in both.
Parker laughed out loud at Jasmines last comment.
"I'm just imagining me trying to feed a broom an apple to make it go faster," he said still giggling a little.
Then he thought of something and began speaking without knowing where it was going to end.
"Anyways," he continued, "I don't think you have anything to worry about. We all look like idiots sometimes." Parker pointed to his shoes which had stepped in his food to prove the point.

Parker was immediately embarrassed upon saying it, but knew that he meant it as well. When Jasmine smiled, like really smiled not her polite smile, she was quite distracting, and Parker realized immediately that he couldn't get distracted right now as he was still very confused about everything else going on.
"I'm going to go get some more food that I haven't stepped on. It was nice to meet you Jasmine of the California Delachenes. I'll be sure to bring some apples to our first flying lesson in case you need one."
With that Parker turned back to the food table so that he wouldn't be distracted by stories of horses, or smiles.

    Jasmine smiled fondly in remembrance, "Well, the first time, I was probably only three or four, so Mom rode behind me to make sure I didn't fall off. Honestly, I don't remember not riding Flossie, so ... more
