Came across this story that could be the basis
of an intersting routine with stones produced to meet the need,
and provide a lesson as well.

Of course if the stones didn't do the trick, more water could be poured from the previously empty pitcher(lotta).

Interesting... I immediately thought of a three ball routine much like Aldo Colombini's "Get the Ball Rolling." Stones (balls) are dropped one by one into the closed fist, only to vanish having been replaced by the "worm." (Rubber insect or worm.)

I have some thinking to do...

Thanks for the inspiration.

Great idea, I really enjoy this kind of creative thinking.

I remember hearing a parable of a lad having his pockets filled with stones and set on a long journey however as he traveled he wanted to lighten his load so he kept throwing out stones. At the end of his journey he had only one stone left and upon removing it from his pocket he found it to be not a plain stone but a rare gem. I have never been able to find the original writing of the parable but have always favored it for a nice script and magical routine idea.
