I got up this morning with full intent to go about my duties. After giving Legba his coffee, I noticed something in his glass of rum. Upon close examination, I found it to be mold. I stared at the mold all-accusatory like and then stared at his section of altar space with similar look. Quickly, I rushed to Ghede’s altar to search for similar issues. However, the peanuts and rum over there is without mold. So, this was a pure Legba occurrence.
I’ve pulled the glass and set it aside for serious and necessary sanitizing. I figure that something that’s never happened before has a meaning of some sort. It’s a matter of figuring it out.
1. He’s displeased because I took a day for myself yesterday. There were no offerings to anybody. I just remained a stationary lump on the couch all day.
2. He’s displeased with what he thinks is me not listening to what he’s had another servant of his tell me.
3. This is him telling me to fuck off.
I prefer reason number one, for obvious reason. That is easily rectified. The second reason is a little more distressing (and probably closer to accurate). It’s also not very fair of him to ask me to do something that I don’t do: give up without trying every possible avenue first. And the last reason is odd, though also possible.
