 Many years ago I worked in an office with a window overlooking an interior atrium. On the other side of the atrium were similar offices. As it so happens it afforded me an excellent view of another company's copier room.

 One day I'm on the phone I turn around glancing out the window I see three women early in their 20s dancing and gyrating around the copier in  some ritual meant to free up a paper jam or something.

I was absolutely entranced by the secret ritual I was witnessing. I will never know if they got their copiesbecause after a moment they noticed me and scattered laughing all the while.

Wait. What were we talking about?

Hubby farts and I go running for the sage which I waved around him while chanting "Be gone foul demons of the air!"  He doesn't think it's nearly as funny as I do.

OK So Amuse Me: From what I can gather from TFA she was 'present' when someone else burned sage so, totes "FORCED TO PARTICIPATE". From what I've learned all my life and from my Native American Studies class Native Americans don't really have 'issues' burning Sage as they farking invented burning Sage in rituals. Color me cornfuzzled.


But the best part was that they were 'exercising' the demons

Not clear whether it was the complainant or the sage burners who thought that a bit of cardio might help

But I heard that anything involving demons is by defnition un-holey.

The article seems to imply the pagan ritual was a bad thing.  This country was founded on paganism, and it is what has made our country great.

Wiccans generally don't believe in demons. Also never known them to be so specific in the twine they use.


In my excessively limited Wiccan experiences, their twine is usually rustic jute-y stuff or purple velvet.

Amazon doesn't have any results for 'Wiccan twine.'

I am really curious about this twine now. What if the twine I've been using to hold up my climing plants is secretly wiccan?!?

Worldwalker: Like a lot of other people, I'm wondering what's with the Wiccan twine? Is there Native American twine, too? Does every culture that uses smudging have their own twine, or do some of them share?


I'm told Catholics are into the Holy Twine-ity.

It usually has more hair and reeks of patchouli.

All copiers are powered by demons; that's how they work. You don't want to exorcise them; you want to placate them.
