A Bit of the Devil


“Dear, you are wicked. Why do you insist on leaving that spider to act as host for your house plants?”

“Oh, it’s a bit of the devil in me who likes to scare a curse out of the sainted Mary every time she goes to pinch and pity speech my meager attempt at gardening. The cackles dancing from my lips aggravate her so much she huffs out like I had just slapped a priest’s bottom.”

“Well, add that to your list of offenses. It appears the Sacred Crochet Circle will be forgoing their stitches again to do another tea/exorcism.”

  2. Love the plots inside the close circle of crochet ladies... I recommend serving bourbon instead of tea though

  6. Dear Susie,

    I laughed out loud at the thought of someone slapping a priest's bottom. Some people just like to get under other folks' skin, don't they? Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
