What do you do when someone asks you this? i usually just say something along the lines of, i didnt learn it i inherited it. if they become more specific, like if they ask me if i learned it from a book, i usually say, multiple sources. but do you guys have any better ideas?

When I do kid's shows I tell them I went to Hogwarts with Harry Potter.

They buy it.

If I'm working in the shop, I point to a video, if not, I tell them that I make them up as I go along.

I'm afraid I forgot who posted it here initially, but I use the following line:

"It all came to me very suddenly in a dream shortly after I seflessly donated all my money to the local magic shop."

I generally avoid one-liners, but this is often the perfect response, as they laugh, and all they learn is that it can be costly to get into.

never say you learn it from the internet or dvd.sometimes i used curlyfry's idea to the kids and it works all the time.For adult,its quite difficult.i would say i had a tuition class with copperfield or something.

my lines:

"my master taught me"

if they ask me to reveal who my master is,

" my master taught me and made me swear not to tell anyone who he is"

they usually understand that i wont tell, after awhile.
also, i might just say multiple sources, like books, and that will keep them quiet. most ppl dont know there are video explanations. thats a good thing.
