falcon9, hahah! you know, if i struck up a conversation with
her hinting that i was into witchcraft, she'd undoubtedly sprint to
the nearest coworker to spill the beans. the funny part is, she'd
sound like a nutcase, especially to those who think she has a screw
loose anyway. and i'd be doing this:
lol. i'm mentally noting this idea!
Wicca, Witchcraft, voodoun ... doesn't matter - acknowledge nothing, do it on a break and remember to mutter the chanting semi-audibly. Naturally, this type of pseudo-banishing "spell" works best on pseudo-xtians however, even ones who don't believe in such things will have that tiny bit of non-doubt in the back of their minds, (which is essentially how voodoun/"voodoo" 'works'). To me, it's harmless, does not invoke "satan", "daemons" or "angelic demons", is perfectly permissible under the freedom of religion regulations, (wicca is a federally-recognised religion and any persecution of wiccans can become a federal offense quicker than the offender can thump a bible).
As I may not have mentioned, I've now seen it 'work', (or variations of the same technique), used on three separate occassions - at three different places of employment. As you said, you can always retain plausible-deniability, (assuming that you're not actually a wiccan, witch or voudoun priest/ess).
