#6 of Fleur's 10 Best

Ever feel like you're being forced to practice a set of standards not of your choosing? Whether at work or at home, do you think differently than management? And do you, by chance, feel conflicted about expressing that difference? Don't fret just voodoo yourself into it.

According to Wikipedia, Haitian Voodoo "is based upon a merging of the beliefs and practices of West African peoples, with Roman Catholic Christianity, which was brought about as African slaves were brought to Haiti in the 16th century and forced to convert to the religion of their owners, whilst they largely still followed their traditional African beliefs."

While your performance and presentation may necessarily have to satisfy the going rate, your subtext is your own to keep and I for one hope there will still be some bloody-throated chickens offered in passionate obeisance to your ultimate truth, metaphorically speaking of course...
