Second, I personally wouldn't carry anything that would be unusual for a normal person to carry. Example: why would you openly carry Sweet & Low with you? If you're in a restaurant, then using the sweetener on the table is great, but otherwise, I wouldn't. And a deck of cards? Isn't this supposed to look impromptu? I would recommend performance material that uses nothing more the money in your pockets (real-looking money, not silver dollars that only magicians carry), your keys, business cards, borrowed objects, and the office supplies or other items that are part of your environment. By sticking to these limitations, the magic you perform will be more casual and feel less contrived. You don't want to look like you carry all kinds of stuff with you, just dying for somebody to ask you to do a trick. Do you? Possibilities: the aforementioned $100 Bill Switch, Wilson's key version of C&S, OTL with biz cards, Eugene's Last Dollar, T&R biz card, Stuck (use a borrowed coin), Prohibition, Ambitious biz card (have the back of one signed and you're off to the races), coin or bill under the watch, a watch steal, and so on. One exception: if you're the kind of person who can be expected to be carrying around a mystical object on your person in your everyday life, you can use that too. But that doesn't mean sponge balls. For example, it could be an unapologetically antique coin -- but it had better be examinable at the end, because there will be a ton of heat on it. Best, Neil [/quote]
