remember that book the witches by roald dahl? remember the movie? that movie frightened me to no end. anyway, in the book, witches are all organized to rid the world of children and lead by the grand high witch. unhappy that children still roam the earth, the grand high witch devises formula 86 that will turn whomever drinks it to a mouse. to get this to children she plans to traffic it through sweet shops run by other witches. long story short, people get wise and the witches end up with a taste of their own medicine…literally. now, to recognize a witch there are some tricks to follow-they wear gloves to hide their claws, shoes to hide their toe-less feet (aka no sandals/peep toes), they wear wigs and they have purple eyes. the grand high witch is described as very glamorous while incognito and hideous under the surface…go figure.
