So very wrong

I was chatting to Shutters in a middle of the morning displacement activity sort of way rather than read a book about madness. We were talking about acting as people's personal tempter - encouraging people to hang out with beautiful young things, or read slash, or eat expensive chocolate.

Ian said. 'Don't see you as a tempter, Roz. You're hardly the spirit that always denies, are you?' (Except he said the last bit in German, because last time he saw Faust, it was in the original.)

Quite spontaneously, and surprisingly in tune, I sang,
'Ich bin der Geist/ Thayut cay'nt say No'. Which was very disturbing. Goethe and Rodgers and Hammerstein - we are sick puppies...
