When you get a bright idea to build showcases to replace the showcases you threw out, 3 years ago
then
move all the close-up stuff into the back room and all the stage into the front, where it was 3 years ago
then
after you built one case you realize why it was a bad idea to begin with but now you're stuck because you bought 300 in glass and already cut it.

It's times like this when I wish I just sold cards.

Then NOT doing every idea, is also an idea (by itself) proving that.... if it was an after-thought ....

you really didn't write every idea, in the first place.

(I don't want anyone to think that I'm splitting hares..... because I'm more of a dove worker BUT... if you want me to split hares then please just buy me a second bunny that matches the first.)

When you have just spent more than an hour trying to think of "plant" jokes and googling on the internet for "fern" jokes because you just purchased "Planted"... That you just bought a new larger car today through the "cash for clunkers" program so you have more trunk space to haul your magic around in... That you have Michael Close's joke CD in your car... That you send your kid to magic camp... That you know what city in Michigan was featured on a sticker from Doug Henning's Substitution Trunk of The Magic Show... That you know what companies Arturo worked for (and you saw him perform live years ago)... That you bring a magic book or magazine with you when you know you might have to be waiting in a waiting room for more than 5 minutes... That you know Mike Miller's real first name... That you know that it is not Dollywood that makes Pigeon Forge next week a great place to visit... That you wish you had a toe switch... That you have done an imprompto Miser's Dream routine using a borrowed plastic pitcher from a restaurant waitress... That you have a bunch of rigged sugar packets in your pocket everytime you go out to eat... That you use real $100 bills in your Slow Burn routine... That you have more thimbles than your grandmother ever had... That your only Twitter partner is the S.A.M.... That you wish you could do some kind of magic routine from the final music Tango scene of "True Lies"... That you have placed coins on Blackstone's grave... That Jeff McBride has taught you more from his magic DVDs than you learned probably taking any foreign language class in college... That your kid really wants a Colon Magi football jersey... That you know Gene Anderson has a huge new book coming out probably next year... That you have never done a Zarrow shuffle but wish you had... That you know what basketball player used to team up with Harry Lorayne... That you know what city Marlo performed during his later years at... That you have heard of Bob Solari... That you wished you could be in Vegas more just to be at Denny and Lee's... That you'd like to see The Pandora Bag... That you actually considered having some live chicks for the finale of your cups and balls routine... That you wonder if roughing fluid is now availabe in powder form, liquid form, or spray form and what would work best?...

When you actually look forward to reading magicbus's long diatribes.

When you have considered scoops of ice cream for your final loads in cubs and balls, but can't figure out how to keep it from melting before you get to use it as a load.

When you know that Arturo had something to do with Glen or Babs or some name like that... That you considered a magic tatoo but then knew you could not make it vanish... That you'd chew your fingernails except you don't like the taste of fanning powder... That you have at least three pieces of magic related jewelry... That all your work suitcoats have IBM or SAM lapel pins... That you know the day Houdini died... That you have a T-Shirt that reads "Waste of Talent"... That you have your own clothes when you go to a costume party... That you wish you had a rabbit hood ornament on your car... That you know and accurately predict that every time Kreskin is on tv he says something like "When I was on Regis for the 100th time" or "Johnny and Ed loved this..." or "As I said to Mike Douglas and Zsa Zsa Gabor when I read their minds..." That your favorite corporation is Magic, Inc... That you've said these cliche lines at least 10 times: "If I told you, I'd have to kill you..." or "Can you keep a secret? Well so can I" or "How'd I Do It?, Very Well, Thank You"... That you can hear Mark Wilson's soothing voice pattern in your head... That your favorite cookie is Fig Newtons for obvious reasons... That your office version of "Snowstorm" involves "White Out"... That you have a metal thumb tip... That you read Steve Martin's entire biography just because he started out doing magic... ditto for Johnny Carson's... That you recognize Ricky Jay everytime he shows up in a movie such as the nondescript guy running the diner... That you remember Ricky Jay throwing cards through three sheets of newspaper... That you've had to duck from a thrown card from McBride... That you put Bicycle cards in your bike spokes... That you've seen Blackstone, Jr. float a bulb over the audience- the bright light still burns in your brain... That you are so very happy to chat and blather on and on about magic with others online...

When you simply outline a new Magic act and promptly get yourself booked on the music festival circuit after you're 60.
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

I have a shell for a bowling ball, so I can do that but I need bigger pockets.

When you have to travel far away (2-3 hours) on Friday to a convention. Next back back to perform. Next travel back to the convention on Saturday. Next travel back to perform.
