2016 was a very special year and it deserves a very special sendoff. Here is my recipe for Dec 31st:
For the ritual soundtrack, I’m going to turn on some nostalgic Prince. Your tastes may vary–you are welcome to instead try some Leonard Cohen, Bowie, Sharon Jones, or any of the many talented musicians who left the planet this year.
Sadly, I don’t have a cauldron, so instead I’m going to find a large pot and put it on the stove. Bring water to a boil in the pot and then toss in the following ingredients:
–the hair of a Trump voter
–eye of Pepe the frog
–my now useless I’m With Her sticker
–my now useless Bill of Rights
–a photo of Justin Bieber…who is still alive
–a few chopped up pieces of the root of division and prejudice
Be sure to stir the pot, and then dance around it, muttering dark incantations and chanting: “Things will only get worse! Things will only get worse!”
Repeat as many times as needed. Keep the pot for next year–I’m sure we’ll be doing the same thing in 2017….
