Mindy: Uh, hi, who are you supposed to be?
Marie Laveau: Supposed to be? I do not think I care for your tone.
Mindy: Sorry, I’m wiped out…ESP Day. Let’s start again. Hi, I’m Mindy.
Marie: Hello… I am Marie Laveau.
Mindy: The Voodoo Queen???
Marie: If you like.
Mindy: Uhhhhhhh… um, why? What’s happening…How did Corporate Suit Dude…
Marie: Is that what you call him?
Mindy: What do YOU call him?
Marie: Names have power, if he wanted you to know, then he would tell you.
Mindy: Oh, he did, I just forget, it’s something like KenJerRobBarthol—
Marie: Can we do the thing? I am getting bored.
Mindy: Sure, okay, yes. Except…I don’t know what we’re supposed to be doing.
Marie: You complain about exercising, yes?
Mindy: That’s what they told you I do?!? That’s it??
Marie: They did.
Mindy: Wow. Huh. I mean, sure, I need to *process* difficult workouts…dead lifts…90-second rows…basically anything treads… I guess it just sucks to see yourself through someone else’s eyes…
Marie: Did you want to see yourself through the eyes of say, a crow? Or a cat? Because I could do that.
Mindy: You CAN??? I thought voodoo was just about sticking pins into dolls that represented people you don’t like.
Marie: It is not JUST about dolls… voodoo is part of a larger, cultural, tradition. Magic is a part of that.
Mindy: You can kill me with your little finger, can’t you?
Mindy: Do you have a voodoo doll of me?
Marie: Why do you think the workout was so hard today?
Marie: People never expect me to be funny.
Mindy: I just think when people are scared to death of you, the default is probably nervous laughter.
Mindy: But now that you’re here, I can think of a few people who I wouldn’t mind making a voodoo doll for…
Marie: Get me some hair, we’ll talk.
Mindy: Ew. Would pet hair work?
Marie: Only if you want a voodoo doll of the pet.
Mindy: Wait, hang on…can you resurrect the dead? I thought I saw a movie about that…Zombies? Serpent and the Rainbow?
Marie: Death is not the end.
Mindy: Okay, CHILLS that you just said that. But you can resurrect…things? Pets, people–?
Marie: Just about anything. Except your love life. Nothing could resurrect that.
Mindy: Ouch. Solid burn.
Marie: See? I can be funny.
