Coven Traditions February 14, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Friends, Funny Stuff, Relationships.

Recently both Anja and Widdle Shamrock have written about our ‘coven’ as we have taken to calling ourselves.

These two ravishing ladies have seen me through some of the darkest days of my adult life, have celebrated with me in my triumphs, have listened when I need to unload, have laughed with me at the silly things and cried with me over the sad things.

They have encouraged me, advised me, humoured me, counselled me, made fun of me and kicked my arse when it needed it. They send me text messages telling me how hot the guys are at the pool. They ring my bewildered husband to find out how I’m recovering from surgery. They send me photo’s of half naked, spank worthy, hot guys to drool  over when in need of a pick me up. They threaten to kneecap my enemies and to write up death certificates for me should I choose to commit a justifiable homicide.

Together, we poke fun at our lives, ourselves, our partners, our families, and all the stupid people in the world.

We have never physically met, but they know me better than most people.

They are my sisters in my heart.

Calling ourselves a coven does not mean that we are all witches, but it is a reference to that sisterhood, to being a group of women with ties that bind.

And after sharing so much history we have developed some traditions too.

The tradition that I would like to share with you today is one of our favourites.  It is a reason for hesitating to tell anyone that you are going to be away for a few days…………

When one of us dares to leave their computer for a few days the others do what they can to fill their email inbox.

Sounds rather benign doesn’t it?

Until you learn that after a week long camping trip to Echuca in Victoria, I returned to over 600 (count em six hundred!) emails.  The next trip I took for only a few days, there were 300 of them.

The rules are that you have from when a person leaves on a trip till when they get home to fill their inbox with as many emails as you can. They can be jokes, pictures, links, news articles or anything else you can find. They can be a series of emails sent






Or any other imaginative format that you can think of.

You get the picture?

Now I have a favour to ask, dear reader. As all is fair in love and absentee email wars, I need to enlist your help. Anja has taken off for a few days of bunny loving leaving her email box fair game. But I am more cunning than just that, I’m asking for your help to post as many comments as possible to her blog, Rat In A Cage. A double whammy so to speak. She won’t be expecting that!

600 Emails. 300 Emails. I need some payback!

We have until Sunday. Let the commenting madness begin!!
