      I really enjoyed the read. And the video made me laugh...much delight. I like the way that you have the sells of magic items between each paragraph, clever. As a magician myself, I still get fooled...and love it!

      Magic tricks should be performed in front of family first and then perform in front of a crowd.

      It's funny, I love magic, and every time I see a magician perform something, I'm desperate to find out how they do it. Usually, when I find out, I'm so disappointed. I try and not look behind the curtain anymore, it ruins the mystique...
