The Magic Beard

My daughter has a knack of finding ridiculous You Tube videos.  Last night, while I was zooming around, she wanted me to watch one.  "Mom, you have to check this awesome video out!"

"Do I have to?" I asked.  "I'm really busy!"

"Yeah, Mom.  You'll love it."

I watched the video.  You can watch it here. (I tried to post the video on my blog, but for some reason, it wouldn't allow for viewing.  You need an adobe flash player to see it.)



"Seriously?" I asked.  "Do people not have more important things to do than film a scraggly beard that makes celery disappear?"

My daughter laughed.  "I want one," she said. "It's cool, and I bet it can make Brussels sprouts disappear!"

Hmmm.  I wonder if it can make all of the hair our German Shepherd, Schultz, has been shedding, disappear, too.  If so, I want one!

  4. Maybe you can make a magic beard WITH the Shepherd's fur, haha. My kids area always stopping me too to have me watch videos! I have to admit I've seen some pretty funny things I never otherwise would have. Has your daughter discovered Tumblr yet?

    Soooo, I saw the review you left for DT on Amazon. I loved every single word of it. :) I'm so happy, happy you enjoyed it, and THANK YOU for taking time to leave a review. A little perk I'm offering to reviewers is a pdf of the original ending to the story - you can read more about it here (if I mastered the linkage correctly). Or just shoot me an e-mail at elson.nicki@gmail.com and I'll send it right over.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Thank you so much! I really enjoyed your book. You're such a talented writer!

      I think you're right about making a beard with Schultz's hair. I bet I could make about fifty beards!

  6. I used to have a thick beard like that, but mine has been trimmed more closely the last two decades and you remind me that I need to do another beard post for I have had my current beard for 25 years this month (far surpassing the times of the first two).

  8. That's so funny, Sherry. Not sure if it would work for Schultz's hair, but it seems to do so many tricks so you never know what might happen!

  10. That man is either really patient or really creative, or both, to make that video.

    1. I'd say he's both. Those are a bunch of one-second clips all strung together. I couldn't even imagine how long it took to do that!

  11. Wow. I used to think my beard was magical. Not anymore.

  12. That's a pretty clever beard, unlike ones that get food stuck in them. They're gross!
