Ritual for DivorceEdit
Charlene needed to bury a beak of an owl, 4 tail feathers from a chicken hawk, piece of bacon and a broke comb, under an oak tree.
Beak of owl,
Strip of swine,
tooth of the comb,
take mine from thine.
Kinaba in, Kinaba out
Kinaba in and 'round about.
Charlene: You know what else he did? He went huntin' foxes with old Hasty Burford and he didn't come home until Wednesday week.
Andy: Well, maybe he's tryin' to get you some makin's for a fox pie... or a nice fur collar to wear to preachin'.
Charlene: No, he wasn't. I know what they do up there in the hills. They sit around drinkin' hard cider, punchin' each other in the arms and hollerin' "flinch". I don't want him anymore.
