well, my friends know i'm a magician.
there's another kid at school who does it too. (wouldn't that be interesting if he was a penguin?)...
well, he was doing a trick a couple weeks ago, and i just commented to a friend that i knew how he did it(didn't say how!), well i guess i said it too loud, 'cause he came up and said, "then do it!!! huh? can't do it? i knew it! there's one in every crowd."
well, I know i shouldn't have, but i couldn't help but say, "you're performing at a middle school, what do you expect?!?!"
I made sure not to say anything to him about magic, even though i didn't know him at all.
just today, a friend asked me if i could do this, not knowing he was talking about magic, nevermind about that kid. but the kid did a trick with a stripper deck. i hung near the back of the crowd, my friend came back and said, "so do you know?"
i said, "yeah" Having no intention on ruining his trick.
the guy must have super hearing, but he came over again and said, "so do it then."
i didn't want to take away his people, and i wasn't absolutely positive at the time that it was a stripper deck, so i said i wouldn't.
I told him i wasn't trying to heckle him, i was just answering my friends question. and i guess when he realized i wan't telling anyone how to do it, despite all there asking, but he came over and said he respected me for not telling. I didn't give a flying monkey that he respected me, i'm a far better magician, but I was glad he didn't think of me as a heckler who gave away secrets...
anyways, i'm glad you're still reading this, how do i respond to "do you know how to do that" and what should i have done in that case?
