Is That Jar of Pee a Witch Bottle I See?

My grandmother was a very witchy woman. She gave me my first divination tools—a pendulum and a deck of tarot cards—and my sister inherited her Ouija board when she died. She had an ethereal look about her, and her humming always seemed to have a magical quality. Her daughters all have unique “powers” of their own—from clairvoyance to simply willing things to happen—and though we’ve never really discussed it much in the open, I know my family has a long history of “dabbling” in magical arts.
