i just have to talk to someone

Remember "Bewitched" the 1960's t.v. sitcom about a witch who marries a mortal and waits until their wedding night to tell him she's a witch? Really - how believable was that? Their wedding night? Why did she wait? We all know what happened, they lived happily ever after in t.v. land with little witchy things happening, babies arriving, in-law troubles, and crazy neighbors. Samantha tried not to use her witchcraft and Darrin loved her more when she acted normal - which she wasn't (or did he love her for trying to be more like him?). Let's be honest, he adored her for not using witchcraft, unless, of course, he needed a little something then she could witch on.

Well, if you'll believe that, will you believe that a woman married a man in the 1980's and tried to be everything he wanted in a wife because she loved him? She tried his religion, learned to love football, quit work to stay home with their kids, and gave up tea in the morning for coffee all because she loved her man .... and I still do. Only my dear husband has just announced he will retire next year. So I have about 13 months to decide if I should tell him

"Darrin, I'm a witch."

This should be interesting and I'm not sure if I will tell him or just keep myself tucked cleverly away in the broom closet.

This could be a wild ride. 

Are you with me?

  1. I loved "Bewitched" when I was a girl. My faves were Aunt Agatha and Uncle . . . can't remember his name but it was Paul Lynde who played him. Witches and gays -- unconsciously, I recognized my tribe, LOL!
