Black Girl Magic: Did My Ex Put A Hex On Me?
Listen, I ain't superstitious or nothing but… I think my ex put a hex on me. I cheated on her after we had been dating for 3 years and she didn't take it too well.
The last thing she sent me was a text on my birthday that read, “Hajeebaba." Initially, I thought this was just a typo of "Happy Birthday." But now that I think about it... don't that shit sound like a hex?
Exhibit A: I decided it was time to reach out to my boy, Charles. I hadn't really seen him since I started dating Brenda. I thought the meet-up would be a fun way to reconnect and reminisce. But, the entire vibe was weird: awkward pauses, weird smiles, fake laughs. Something was definitely off. Charles is my boy. How had our decade old rapport suddenly vanished? Obviously the work of a hex.
Exhibit B: Now that I’m single, I have all this time on my hands. I should be out playing sports, partying, going to concerts, kissing girls, whatever. But instead, whenever I have free time I spend it at home looking at Brenda’s Facebook. Here’s the weirdest part: I hate Facebook! All it is are reposts of old videos, politics or people I don't care about. But I’m on there every day, against my will, looking at her bikini pics. It's the first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before I got to bed. There is definitely some spiritual entity at play.
Exhibit C: Since I don't leave the house much, I decided to catch up on some shows my ex wouldn't let me watch on Netflix (I kept trying to tell her I wanted to watch The L Word for the relationships and not the sex scenes! I digress...). But when I went on Netflix: nothing. All the shows were gone. It was asking me for a “login ID” and “password”. When Brenda first introduced me to Netflix, I never had to provide any of that information. But now that she's gone, Netflix is acting all brand new. This hex is getting out of control.
Brenda won't return any of my calls so if anyone gets in contact with her, please tell her to lift the hex. My life is miserable. Also, tell her I miss her or whatever.
