"Not especially. I usually find a way to piss people off, so sometimes it's better to say as little as possible." Ron wasn't sure it was ever too early for firewhiskey, but maybe that was a Weasley and Harry thing, rather than an everyone thing. "I've got a bottle and don't mind sharing if you change your mind."
Ron thought that seeing how it went was probably as good as it was going to get, so just nodded. "The spells are good. We're going to need to build something at some point most likely, so at least we'll have a head start there." It would take long time to outgrow the castle, but they'd eventually reach that point. Assuming Hogwarts would let them leave without punishment.
"That was my thought too, I just hadn't had the opportunity to mention it to anyone. I'm glad someone else had the thought too, at least until something else occurs." Ron wasn't really the idea guy, at least with experimental magic, but he did trust that it would be a start. "The house-elves are an option as well, but it's tedious to have to rely on them to alert us whenever someone arrives." He didn't doubt they knew exactly when and where people arrived, but they needed something a little more readily available than that. "And I'll let you know after I talk to Harry."
