    The connection between writing and magic is ancient. To this day the “magic” word ABraCaDabra is based on the alphabet.

    If she is going to cast a spell, she should be using a fishing pole.

    Rubbish right back at you. The OED gives the origin as unknown yet nonetheless traces the word to a Latin writer in the 3rd C. Both the OED and Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology (which doesn’t always agree) refer to a word spoken by or a charm worn by a magician. The American Heritage Dicitonary of the English Language 4th Ed. even describes the magic amulet as a triangle containing lines of letters of the alphabet, starting with A at the top. The OED compared “abracadabra” with “abraxis” in usage but does no relate them etymologically. Your source?

    On a completely different note, she ought to see a doctor about that strange jaundice. Maybe a witch doctor?

    Is that Newt alphabet soup, or bat alphabet soup?
