Magic show Years ago, I was at a local fair with some friends, and settled down to watch a magic show. I enjoyed them at the time, but always knew that there wasn’t such a thing as real magic. I knew that it was all illusion and trickery of the eyes and senses. When the magician asked for two volunteers, my best friend’s boyfriend convinced him to choose us. Next thing I knew, my best friend and I were onstage. I wasn’t thrilled. When I said that I enjoyed watching magic shows, I never intended to be a part of one. The magician handed us each 5 cards. We were told to examine them and place them in our back pockets. He claimed that he could make 3 of my cards disappear and reappear in her pocket, adding to her card count. I couldn’t help but wonder how he’d do that. But, he went through this whole ordeal of tapping my shoulder with his magic wand and telling everyone that the 3 cards were now zipping through the air, around the audience and then settled into her pocket. The entire time, she and I were facing one another, not seeing anyone approach us, touch us, or anything of that nature. Nonetheless, when he told us to remove our cards, he had made it happen. I have no idea how. I was so amazed that I could have fallen off of the stage. How is that even possible? It is now years and years later and I still remember that particular magic show. I’m still wondering how he made that happen. I have yet to be in the audience of another magic show that impresses me as much as that particular day. Attending a magic show is something that everyone, of all ages, should do at some point. Children may find that a more child-oriented magic show is absolutely fascinating. Not only might children enjoy the entertainment aspect of the magic show, but it just may stimulate their minds. That stimulation could lead to many discoveries that they’ll make because of their own curiosity. Not a single person can say that would be something bad for a child. The more curiosity, the better. Perhaps your child may end up being a magician someday if they are truly inspired. Be happy – it isn’t nearly as expensive as going to medical school! The older you get, the more you try to rationalize how things work. How is it possible that the trick at the magic show years ago worked? A child doesn’t look for rationalizing – they want to believe in magic. A magician performing for adults needs to have more of a fascinating element to it. of course, No matter how old you are – you still find that there is a sense of excitement about attending a magic show.
