I'm Going To Cast A Spell On You (Season Premiere)
Troy and Sheila exchanged telephone numbers and talked to each other every single day of the week. Sometimes, they would talk for more than an hour and giggled like silly school kids. The two lovebirds talked about everything and came to know each other very intimately. Troy and Sheila had no secrets between them and their conversations were never boring.
After six months had passed, the couple believed that they were deeply in love. Troy wanted to meet this exquisite woman face-to-face. Sheila had even suggested that they meet in Chicago, Illinois. She thought it would be a good half-way point. After more days of delightful conversations, Sheila had a question for her beloved.
"I need some money!" she demanded.
"What?" asked Troy. He was taken aback by Sheila's new demeanor.
"Did I stutter, muther fucker!?"
Searching for the right words, Troy asked, "Where is all of this coming from? How much do you need?"
"5000 dollars! You can wire it to me right, now!" demanded Sheila.
"I don't have that kind of money," Troy replied.
"You are going to be so damn sorry for that," offered Sheila.
"What do you mean?"
"I'm going to cast a spell on you."
"Voodoo. Black Magic. Have you heard of that? I will make sure it brings you instant pain or death."
Days later he began receiving calls from a certified "Voodoo-ist" - as Troy refers to him. The "Voodoo-ist" asked, "Are you dead, yet?"
"Ummmmm....nope. I'm on the phone talking to you - aren't I?," Troy replied.
After another day had passed, the "Voodoo-ist" called and asked again, "Are you dead, yet?"
Troy replied, "No, not yet. Keep trying."
"I don't understand. You should be dead by now. Well, I'll have to cast another spell or mix another magic potion..." the Voodoo-ist said.
"Have at it," offered Troy.
Needless to say, Troy deleted his profile from the online dating site. And, he tolerated the calls from the "Voodoo-ist" for a few more days until Troy threatened to press criminal charges. The
"Voodoo-ist" never blocked his cell number. Now, it's back to the old drawing board for Troy.
Until next week, keep praising HIS name!
