ž-The second thing to remember is that a real witch is always bald.
ž- Bald?
ž- Bald as a boiled egg. My grandmother said.
ž- If she is bald, she will be easy to spot, I said.
ž- Not at all, my grandmother said. A real witch always wears a wig to hide her baldness. She wears a first-class wig. And it is almost impossible to tell a really first-class wig from ordinary hair unless you give it a pull to see if it comes off.
ž- Then that´s what I will have to do, I said.
ž- Don´t be foolish, my grandmother said. You can´t go round pulling at the hair of every lady you meet, even if she is wearing gloves. Just try it and see what happens.
ž- None of these things is any good on its own. My grandmother said. – It is only when you put them all together that they begin to make a little sense.
ž- These wigs do cause a rather serious problem for witches.
ž- What problem, Grandmamma?

ž- They make the scalp itch most terribly.
