I Cast a Spell! (Talk About Mad Props)

This is the skit where I got the phrase 'I cast a spell,' which became a euphemism for farting in my family. When someone has bad gas, they are a 'wizard,' as in 'Mo's been a real wizard today, I thought she'd crapped her pants a couple of times.'

Anyway, that's not what this is about. Em is in a play at school, and she was looking for a big book to use as a prop.

Then she talked about how she needed to make a book cover for it so it would look like a book of spells. I'm like, well, I can offer the services of a professional graphic designer...

So with Em's help (she was truly the Art Director, vetoing my use of the 'æ' grapheme in the word 'faerie.' She wanted the pink, too.
