It’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding.

"The sport of Quidditch gets its name from Queerditch Marsh, the location of the first recorded game around 1050. Quidditch took the best aspects from other ancient broom games such as Stichstock, Aingingein, Creaothceann, Shuntbumps and Swivenhodge. This meant that Quidditch became popular with the masses and has remained so for centuries."
