Inside Magic Favorite and Master Magician Lance Burton retweeted and favorited a tweet about our article this morning.
We wrote about his new film and expressed our unmitigated and real excitement about the movie. Our joy was even less mitigated and excitement more real when we learned he so honored us and this humble, virtual rag.
We have taken screen prints of the Twitter notifications and are still doing our Snoopy “Happy Dance.”
It is distracting to the other passengers on bus but it was the only place we could find wifi in a pinch since they kicked us out of Starbucks for “borrowing” their wooden stirrers to practice a trick we saw on YouTube.
It is not our fault that we like to practice our tricks until we feel they are perfect and that each time we perform the “Broken and Restored Stirrer of Wood” we need two stirrers.
It is also not our fault that we don’t like coffee that much and have never bought a thing from our local Starbucks location as we sit in the air-conditioned comfort of their old leather chairs, stare out onto Santa Monica Boulevard and absently practice the illusion that will no doubt put us over the top.
Maybe they should think about stocking things that everyone likes — Diet Coke, Tang, Funyun and pork rinds. We did find some beef jerky there this morning but it wasn’t for sale and we’re not sure it was beef jerky proper. It may have been something other than beef jerky and because anything that looks like beef jerky but is not beef jerky is something you should not put into your own mouth, we passed up the opportunity.
Our stop is coming up now so we need to sign off.
Hey, what are the odds? We just saw more of something that looks like beef jerky on the seat next to us.
Thank you, Mr. Burton. You have made our month, year and decade.
