James signs up for an extra credit opportunity in Muggle Studies, wherein he will visit a Muggleborn's home and live a Muggle life first hand for a week.  As luck would have it, he is assigned to live with Lily and her family.  Can he survive a week with no magic?  Can she survive entertaining him for a week?  Only time will tell.
