Your Spells

Saying something in a language you don’t understand makes it magic.

Family Magic Series

CH6 PIC1 “Schiebe die Schuld wo sie gehört!”

Glenda’s magic spell is in German. I like to play with languages. In fact, all the spells in the Family Magic series use phrases from real languages. The spells only work when you don’t know the exact translation. So to protect your family from angry dishes, I better tell you this one. It means “put the blame where it belongs!”
What do you think it should look like when a dish disappears? Should it go sneakily? In a noisy puff of smoke? You can draw your version for the Cursed Dishes Art Contest. Or draw someone at home telling a dish to disappear. Are they angry? Excited? Serious? Mischievous?
