I have no idea what got me thinking about love spells this morning. Maybe because it’s St. Patrick’s Day? Ha (but yes, there is a love spell for today’s holiday). I don’t know, but suddenly I had this memory of Christmas 2004 when my sister gave me a love voodoo kit no bigger than the palm of my hand (compact is good if yer gonna voodoo, right?).

At first I was going to put it in my shoe box of stuff-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-but-don’t-want-to-throw-away. And then I decided to bring Voodoo Lou to Fun With Boobs. Fun With Boobs was the next generation of Tuesday Night in With Porn and Meat, and in case you haven’t figured it out by now that’s code for: girls night. But I digress…and should probably write more about these enlightening evenings another time…

So I brought the love kit for my girls to check out and after little deliberation and a lot of libations we decided we were going to do the spell on the voodoo doll.

I swear there are pictures and, or, video of all of this somewhere, but I can’t seem to find any of the above this morning, except for Voodoo Lou himself, and the box, and spell book, as well as some handwritten notes of what to do (in case I didn’t want to read the spell book?), some kind of cocktail recipe (of course!), and a lucky penny. Yup. Have I mentioned girls nights were always very enlightening?

So we did the spell. All four of us carefully placing one pin into the one thing we each wanted in a man: yummy kisser, sense of humor, flowers, and chemistry. And then chanting out loud: Bring him to me! Bring him to me! And whatever else was scribbled down on my notes.

And then…we went out on the town, and I shoved Voodoo Lou into my purse. When I came home, and as per instructions, I placed him under my pillow, because I thought, what could it hurt? When I woke up I had my favorite dessert–seriously, that’s what it said to do in the notes! Of course that could have also just been my sister having a little fun with me…

Three months later I met my future husband. Seriously.

p.s. Voodoo Lou is available for purchase on Amazon.
