    Vivid sense of time and place in your comp entry, Sandra. More powerful for knowing these rituals were once commonplace.

    Thank you so much, Sirtanic :-) Yours great too. I've sat outside a head's office once, and you reminded me of that feeling of dread. Would love to read a longer piece in which Julian and his smug parents get their comeuppance! ;-)

    Late to this. What a wonderful blog. Can't wait to read Jessika's story. So sorry to hear about the in-laws. Rough, tough stuff is life.

    I don't normally do this symbiotic "Loved your Comp Entry" stuff, Sky. But yours is stunningly good. So I'll say so.
