Like forever ago.
To her that probably means 1995.
Pre-internet times! 😀
Circa late 1600ish if she’s using Salem as a reference.
You know, I never understood why whenever people think of New Orleans, they automatically think of ‘voodoo’ or ‘black magic’.
I don’t either, I mean even the so called comes from European tradition not African traditions. I blame Hollywood and popular media. Sort of like how contrary to popular belief a real inquisition would be a rather dull legal affair with a higher risk for dying from boredom than getting burned at the stake or tortured or how the catholic church regularly shut down witch hunts when they got wind of them because they believed the belief in witches was pagan superstition.
Eh, it’s a storytelling device. Shouldn’t look deeper than that, because if you do, you might notice things like how the Salem witch trials thing was more of a moral panic than that witchery had anything to do with it, much like how McCarthy saw commies everywhere but really, plenty of the accused were not, not even remotely.
