I love the way Romano is. He can be reaching adulthood, but he doesn’t stop believing in charms or superstitions. It could seem something contradictory, but I think it’s more like some kind of tradition you shouldn’t forget.
By the way, that charm Romano is setting up is well known in Spain too. It consists in putting a broom behind the front door if there are visitors at your home and you want to get rid of them as soon as possible.
