The Coven of Witches with Questionable Powers. Applications being accepted now.

I was just taking Dorothy Barker for a walk while checking Facebook and I got sucked in because everything in the news is terrible and I ran right into a low-hanging branch so hard I fell down and Dottie jumped on my stomach and looked at me like I was an idiot and a guy driving by stopped and was like, “Jesus, are you okay?” and I explained that I was fine and was just training my papillon to be a seeing eye dog and that she’d failed miserably (because I was too embarrassed to admit that a tree hit me because of the internet) and then I thought that maybe it was a sign from God that I should stop focusing on negative things but then I remembered that really it’s druids who speak through trees and if this is a sign it’s probably one telling me to become a witch and BURN THE WORLD DOWN so I came inside and told Victor that a tree just made me into a witch and that I need to learn more about arson and he told me to lay down because probably I have a concussion and a nap does sound good but you’re not supposed to sleep if you have a concussion so I’m pretty sure that Victor is trying to kill me and I told him I was totally onto him and I may have screamed “DESTROY THE PATRIARCHY!  I SPEAK FOR THE TREES!” and then he was like, “You don’t have a concussion and you aren’t a witch.  You just bumped your noggin and you need to get off Facebook” and he might be right but it’s just as likely that a tree made me a witch and that I now have secret powers, like the power to write an entire post in a single run-on sentence and Victor disagreed and said that lack of proper punctuation isn’t really a gift but I’m pretty sure he’s just jealous that an abusive tree made me magical.

Anyway, I’m going to go lay down now.  If you’d like to join my secret coven of witches with questionable powers you are totally welcome.

    Wasn’t sure how to get you this info except here. Not a witch, but right up your alley. Thought of you the minute I read it.
    Instead of an Elf on the Shelf in December, I’m doing a Doll in the Hall in October. Basically, you take a creepy Annabel porcelain doll that your kids already believe is haunted and keep secretly moving it around the house. For an extra festive touch, I put the doll right in bed with one of the kids whenever they throw it in the trash. It’s Day 5 and they want to move. #dollinthehall

Technically I think I’m already in because I ran into a door pretty hard Friday night in my half awake state and while it didn’t knock me to the ground, it left a bruise and bump from the top of my forehead to my eyebrow and since a door is made of wood (theoretically anyway) and is basically a tree, I think this counts. Although my magical powers haven’t shown themselves yet so do you know how long it’s supposed to take? I’m going to be really bummed if it wasn’t a full induction because I didn’t fall down and I have to go through that again because my face still hurts…..

These days parallel parking is kinda going the way of the dinosaur and the soda shoppe, but I’m pretty sure it’s because the parallel parking demons saw me coming and knew they couldn’t stand against me, so they possessed all the city managers and made them get rid of parallel parking.

    I have (moderate) weather control abilities. I can (usually) make rain go away, especially if I have been invited to an outdoor event. I can’t guarantee sunshine, or it might get stupidly hot because there is just too much sunshine, but that’s beyond my skillset. Rain vs no rain. Unless the rain is VERY determined and can’t be discouraged away from where I am. Then it’s just going to rain, sorry. And I can only control it where I am, not long-distance. However, I am pretty sure I nearly caused a drought one summer when I was in high school, so I have learned to use my powers responsibly.

    Yesterday I was offered a chance to become a well-postured vampire (NO BRAD DINGLEMANS NEED APPLY) and now today, a witch! This is turning out to be a fantastic October! Can I be both? Is there a hybrid vampire witch? Because the power I would wield would be awesome.

    And mostly because last week I was reading my phone while walking into a grocery store and totally face planted over a cement divider in front of everyone. If I were a vampire witch, that shit wouldn’t happen. 1) No need for groceries as I’d subsist on blood and potions 2) As a vampire, I could fly, yo 3) As a witch, I could stop time or cast anti-tipping spells 4) As a vampire, I would have a Renfield to do all shopping for me, thus allowing me more time on Facebook.

    I am willing to become a witch, but Jenny, you cannot allow my ex-husband to join, or I’ll have to quit. He’s really the worst and would use his powers for free porn and Lotto tickets, not giving anything back to the community at all.

  299. I smashed my finger with a ten pound bolt when my hand sabotaged itself by letting go of the bolt at exactly the right moment to smash my finger. Then I hit my other hand with a hammer and ran my shoulder into a hard piece of wood and all these culminated into the super power of continuing to work through tears and cursing. This may have actually turned me into a lumberjack instead of a witch but I’m hoping this coven is inclusive and you won’t mind if I hang around repairing broomsticks and building you shelves to hold your many grimoires.
