Harry Potter fans will immediately understand the meaning behind these shirts. For everyone else, let me explain. In the Harry Potter world, a patronus is sort of like a spirit that comes in a reflection of your personality. Like a guardian, it is produced when one needs protection from evil. For example, Harry Potter’s patronus took the form of a stag, his mother’s was a doe, and Professor Dumbledore’s was a Phoenix.
I saw a T-shirt online that read “My Patronus is a TARDIS” and immediately wanted to recreate it. So I casually asked my son what his patronus would be, if they were real, and he cracked me up by stating, “Chuck Norris.”
A few minutes later, I asked my husband, via Google Chat, what his patronus would be and he ironically said, “Bruce Lee.”
Like father like son!!! I live with two ninjas. My husband loves his shirt, but he said he wouldn’t wear it around strangers.
Who is mine? River Song of course. I had to make myself a mug because, honestly, I also wouldn’t be caught dead walking around in a T-shirt like this. That would be a bit too geeky.
