My daughter just showed me a card trick, involving much laying out and selecting of piles. At the end, she asked me to pick one of two cards. I said 'the one on the left'. She showed me the one on the right. It was mine.

I didn't tell her.

What she shoulda said..."your discard is on the left. Great, that leaves the one on the right. And thats your card!".

I love magic. People won't play cards with me any more though.

I did card manipulations all the way to London and back. The people in the seats beside me refused to ask what I was doing.

Why didn't they ask? Afraid you'd offer to engage in a friendly game?

I think magic is wonderful so long as I don't feel I'm about to be fleeced.
