Burned At The Stake

It occurred to me this morning that, a few centuries ago, I might have been burned at the stake as a witch, because my mother knows various charms or spells, for things such as calming burns and scalds, banishing warts (and one or two other things too) and they do work. Some of them she has passed on to me, as permiited, but she was forbidden from passing them on to my sister; just as I may pass them on to my daughter but not to my sons and always subject to special conditions. So, although I am not terribly proficient at wrinkling my nose or telekinesis, I am a witch and will soon turn my daughter into one too.
