When there are newspaper articles of you from 40 years ago in the file collection at The American Musuem of Magic in Marshall, Michigan.

When you start finding out the hand sizes of magicians and whether they prefer to palm bigger objects or smaller items.

When your son said proudly he could palm a basketball and you were thinking that he was doing a magic trick...

You practice talking in code but you don't have (or will ever have) an assistant.

Or take a bath with your "Soft Soap" trick... Or wash your clothes with your Rabbit Wringer... Or floss your teeth with line from your P & L reel...

You ask someone to think of a card while you wipe your hands with a "Black Towel" gag while wearing a blindfold, handcuffed to a table with a sharp knife and 3 empty slots while guessing the color of a die (inside a box)... dropping the towel you start shuffling the cards with one hand.... which you toss in the air.... and when they cascade down, the handcuffs are invisible for a second so you escape but you grab the selected card and impale it on the knife, leaving the other three slots alone.... and even though you did this at a restaurant,,,,,, but it wasn't a show (just happy hour)... everyone wanted to know how you guessed the color of the die.

When you think you're actually doing this act at the Castle in the Parlour of Prestidigitation.
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

(Someone go drag Jay away from the glue pot again!)

When you look at all your wooden props and wonder if the same glue Jay uses was used to glue them together?

You have a trick that uses glue? I don't have any tricks that use glue. I need to know all about that trick right now that uses glue. What am I missing that I don't know about the world famous glue trick? Jay and Father P. both have it? Does it involve Elmer's? Paste? A sticky bomb? Glue Sticks? Crazy glue? Band-Aids? Scotch tape and soda? Does it appear? Disappear? Hold a man's hat to a steel girder? Like a light and heavy box? Where do I get this glue? I thought I was spending too much time with magic when now I finally find out I don't know anything about your glue trick that is wonderful and that I might be able to use some day. I don't know jack squat about magic, I am not even familiar with the glue illusion. You know you're spending too much time in magic when you are dreaming of any possible conceivable glue trick...

When you keep track of anything magic and magician oriented across the entire Dish Network.

When, in a dream, you plan to visit one of the great Magic shops that existed when you were much younger; a favorite shop in Baltimore.

When you wish there is such a thing as the magician's colony where magicians can live there together ... magicians, magic shops, magic shows, magic conventions, etc, etc, etc.

Yes but everyone would vote themselves as leader, king and best magician too.


When you do that act in the Castle and half the magicians leave..... depressed...... because they've seen it last year.

When you're getting your picture with the mayor and take their glasses, then wear them in the photo.

It's true!

That you've seen June Horowitz's original printed sheet manuscript copies of the original Tarbell course that was sold as a correspondence course before being consolidated by Louis Tannen into book form... That you think Jack Black should play the part of Tim for the Skilldini/The Tim Wright movie... That you wish Denny and Lee would ship everything FedEx overnight as it causes too much anxiety awaiting delivery of the latest Levent DVD via "slow" Priority Mail... That you actually considered spending over $35 for a take-apart, screw together magic wooden wand... that you've wondered about doing an appearing watermellon, then spit seeds out of your mouth. Or have the first ever watermellon lota.
