Hocus Pocus – Mischief is Afoot
Wow is me. Wow is me. Oops, wrong book. Double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble … Yes, folks it’s that time of year again approaching when witches pick up their broomsticks and the dead rise again. When pumpkins have their insides ripped out and…and… and kids just wanna have fun!
And so do us writers! Which is why tomorrow a coven or two of us (especially that Janice Horton, whose great idea this was) are stirring up mischief and mayhem to celebrate Halloween with some spellbinding fun, the magic of which will be produced with a list of ingredients to boil up a recipe and spell of our choosing. So, what do I want to make happen. This needs a lot of thinking about…
Wealth and riches? Yes, that would be nice.
A voice that can sing and charm the angels? Mmmm, even nicer.
A handsome stud who can woo, romance and keep me happy? Nah, already have one of those. (Note, I didn’t say “young”.)
A housekeeper and maid to do all my cleaning and bidding and ironing? Had one before, was good, so a strong possibility
A house in the sun, preferably Greece? Now you’ve got me!
Good health? Wouldn’t we all like that?
Be famous, or infamous, or a bit of both? You’ve got me there again.
Chocolate with zero calories? Oooh, now there’s a thought.
A wine lake, or gin and tonic fountain? Oh… the buzzing of the bees and the cigarette trees, the soda water fountain … Seems like I’ve been on the G&T already.
Now, where was I? Oh yes, the shopping list: one ear of bat, three toenail of goat, a big dollop of laughter…
So, what magic spell did I cook up: find out here
