I took my son to a magic show at the school today. He thinks magic is pretty cool. He was mesmerized by all the tricks. Naturally, when the show was over, he had a few tricks of his own.
"Mama," he said. "I'm going to make this popcorn bag disappear. Close your eyes."
Wait a minute, I thought. The magician on the stage didn't make me close my eyes. Nevertheless, I closed my eyes.
"You can open them, now," he said.
I opened them. Sure enough the bag was gone.
"I'm going to make it reaappear," he announced.
He spun around four times and reached down into his coat. "Ta-dah!" he said, revealing the crumpled popcorn bag.
