Throwback Thursday: July 1983

In this picture, I’m 10 years old and still torturing my family by making them watch me do magic.

For my next trick, I will make your will to live disappear!!

For my next trick, I will make your will to live disappear!!

I was a HORRRRRRRRIIIIIIBLLLLLE magician. My hands were always too small for the tricks. Even the kid sized tricks like what came in this Magic Hat set. And the patter was always written for boys or men. But props to my family – they always watched me, even when I was dropping things left and right.

I continued to buy magic tricks in high school, but I could never become a master of slight of hand.

Items of note:

  • The shirt says “Atlantic City, NJ” even though I barely visited Atlantic City as a kid. It may have been a hand-me-down.
  • The button says “I believe in magic.” I still do.
  • I used Johnson’s Baby Powder as Magic dust.

  • One Comment

    • Your mom and John were just talking about this. They told me that John would clap after every one of your tricks 🙂
