"Ah," said Fudge, who looked thoroughly disconcerted. "Dumbledore, you -- er -- got our -- er -- message that the time and -- er -- place of the hearing had been changed, then?"
"I must have missed it," said Dumbledore cheerfully. "However, due to a lucky mistake I arrived at the Ministry three hours early, so no harm done."
Even as frustrated as I am with Dumbledore, I love him. So freaking much.
