What does "dabble" mean, anyway? To splash a bit, or spatter... to lightly examine. I once dabbled with the idea of becoming a lawyer. Lasted a day or so. A decade ago, Christine O'Donnell, the tea-partier Republican nominee for Senate in Delaware, claimed to have dabbled in witchcraft. What do you suppose that means?
One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that. We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic alter.
You made love on an altar with blood on it? Oh, sorry... I forgot. You don't do that kind of thing. Maybe there was a little kissing, though?
Maybe that blood had been dabbled on the altar, or the 'stuff like that' (whatever that means) was. Maybe your date was dabbling with you... or fooling you.
I don't know. And it doesn't seem that you do, either, O'Donnell.
