Another busy day - a 7:30 start and a lesson in the evening with the elusive Sean (we've had a few false starts). It's a filthy night, rain pouring down, so there are not too many "trick or treat" rings on the door bell, and the two I do answer are by charming kids who are happy to explain their costume choice to me: "I'm a witch!" This is confirmed by Mum, hovering in the background, who obviously endores her child's extortion with threats and menaces and embraces everything else in poor taste the Americans have bequeathed us. What? Halloween is fun? I'm sure it is.... in Baltimore.
