Here's the challenge: you are at the swimming pool (doesn't matter where - hotel, friend's house, but away from home) and you get challenged to "do some magic."

What do you do? Oh, yes, you have been IN the pool in the last two minutes, so you are in your suit and still soaked. No one's playing cards, either.

To add to the pressure, one of the guests has offered you a paying gig if you can impress them.

Branching anagram of a birth sign..while looking at the water receiving impressions of each letter.

I can't think of anything after that except, Maybe borrow a small object ring or coin and vanish it ( retention vanish ).. but I don't know where it could re-appear.

Good question.
Self concept is destiny..

I vote for PK touches ... so far it has been very powerful for magic at a moments notice ... Also silverware bending as long as the host of the pool party is cool with it ....

The incredible memory routine. Get a big crowd, maybe 50 then do the routine, one object from each person

Some of my favorites include Kathy's Screwy Finger Bit (Magic Menu, Jim Ryan Issue), Pendulum effect (making it move while they hold it), equivoque, han ping chien (with borrowed coins if any are available), flight of the paper balls (if tissue paper is available - towel off your hands first, of course) and a paddle routine using an ungaffed pencil if one is available.

More later.
