Should I Be Worried?

My family and I visited Navy Pier, Chicago this weekend.  That's us on the anchor.  My hubby was there too, but he's taking the picture. We had a great time and if you are ever in the area, I highly recommend a visit.

But that's not what this post is about.  This post is about my youngest, the one at the bottom of the anchor.  See, we were window shopping along the way and my family was instantly drawn to this little shop that sold, um, voodoo dolls.

They weren't REAL voodoo dolls.  They're called VooDoo friends.  You buy them and clip them on to your bag or cell phone or whatever.

So, my husband buys me this cute little white one.  It's called cupid and it helps you show someone you care.

Guess which one my youngest picked?  The Prince of Darkness!

It says it helps the user with EVIL plans.  Wouldn't you know it...she got in trouble later that day and I caught her pointing this thing at me.

Should I be worried?  I think this one might get "lost" in the wash.

  1. The short answer is "yes." LOL That is kind of funny though.

  2. No, fear not. My best friend had one of these little guys hanging from her rear-view mirror for years ad she has turned out completely normal :)

  3. hahaha! Be very afraid of that one. ;)

    I saw those for sale while I was in line at Walgreens the other day. I think they're cute, too.

  4. Everyone should have a little red devil to hand - you never know when it might come in useful.

    And, in answer to your question, "probably, yes". >:-}

  5. Good lesson here:
    The Cupid= Love covers a multitude of things...
    The Evil= Will set you up and spit you out every single time... No worries let it get lost in the wash like that other sock we could never find!

  7. You know what struck me when I read this, is how "they" whoever they are, assimilated and try to make evil as an everyday thing for us now. It is amazing how our children are bombarded by things that have the appearance of evil when we were told to stay away from it.

    Just a thought! Or two....:)

  8. Lose it in the wash. If she got in trouble, she brought it on herself - the universal Law of Three. ;-) That which you do comes back on you (sooner or later) threefold. I agree with Sonia. That which was once "evil" at least imagery wise, is now passe' or romanticized

  9. Voodoo buddies? Nobody gets hurt, nobody feels alone? That seems fine by me.
