It has been a few months but I thought you would still get a kick out of this.

Well I had decided to go with my family to a VW car show. I was never into that sort of scene but it was a good excuse to go to Portland so I took it. We got there and I did some work with balloons. The couple who owned the car I was near seemed interested in what I was doing and we started talking. They were fine people.

A few hours later everyone was to take a cruse in their cars from Portland to Crescent City. It was a long drive and we happened to be behind the same people that I had talked to before. About half way through our drive they pull off to the curb. The drum of their back tire had spun out and they needed a replacement.
We decided to stick with them until they got one and I once again started talking to the couple. I mentioned I was into magic and such and the lady asks me if I have ever been to a Houdinis magic shop. Of course I have. To my surprise she tells me that she had been taught magic as a little girl and grew up to be married to the owner of Houdinis magic shops.
Turns out they are divorced now but he still sends her all sorts of magic stuff. She offered to send me a bunch of stuff but I do not like accepting gifts so I declined.

To sum this all up you never know who you are going to meet. The world is smaller then you think.


As always,
Dylan

That'd be awesome to meet her. It's a shame you declined her offer, it'd be cool to get that stuff.

Nice, I met one of the Amazing Johnathon's Wifes who I actually performed at my restaurant for and she was in his act for years. She complimented me on my skill and said I was one of the best presentation and technical wise close up magicians she has seen. :D
