I have decided what I need is a Hoochie Coochie Man...A little white magic.
More precisely the New Digs needs some protection from evil spirits. Call it superstition, or maybe I'm a little "tetched" (as my Old Granny would say) but I firmly believe that if evil spirits exist, they no doubt hang out in suburbia among the neat rows of tract homes, waiting for the opportunity to wreak a little havoc. I am not taking any chances.
I'm considering a Bottletree. The shiny glass attracts evil spirits then the bottles trap them. Perfect!
Slaves brought this tradition to the Mississippi Delta from the Congo. Since I don’t have a “real” tree I guess I have to go with a pre-fab version like one of these.
I don't know how well they work, but I can imagine it will be fun to drink all the Martini's it will take to fill the tree!
