I was on my way to my gig, then I stopped at a hookah bar on the way there. I stop and talk to the owner about random things, then he says go do some magic for these people right here. So I go over like normal introduce myself and blah blah. But when I reach in my pocket my deck is not there. And I know what you guys are gonna say "well improvise and do something else", well I would have but I was excited, because I had been practicing Reswindled all week long, I even set up the deck before I left because that's the first trick I wanted to do to somebody that night. Anyways, I bailed out and went all the way back to my house just to do Reswindled. Is that dedication or what. Of course not you forgot your deck idiot. Hahaha, after I thought that was funny. So, do any of you have crazy blonde magician moments? Tell your best story below.

A friend of my was doing his Dove act on stage about 20 years ago and after the music started it came to him that he didn't load the doves in his jacket!
As for me. I was in the middle of my opening number when it hit me! I didn't load the Rabbit! 
I bet there are some great story's out there!

I forgot to pack a white shirt for a formal show
So
I convinced a guy with a white shirt to be in the show and do the "shirt pull" using a print shirt (mine). He sat the rest of the show wearing his wind-breaker without any shirt.

After the show he was perplexed why his white shirt was SO Sooo sweaty.
Maybe it's because I was wearing it for an hour. Smile

Mine has occurred more than once! That is to load things correctly but fail to remove the clip holding the Line of Silks together. (Fortunately, I have learned how to fix the problem and ditch the clip on the dove harness while doing the act.)

This morning I am scheduled to do a reading program at a near by elementary school. 3 kids and the counselor. I get to work and discover, I don't have my bag. I do find a deck of cards, 6 coins, rubber bands and lots of post it's.

Will let you know how it went.

Be safe, well and creative.

Thanks for your dedication to the art.

Traveling with a blank pistol has gotten to be a hassle. (Certainly using a real gun may be easier.)

Lucy and I got to Nashville once with no pistol and three shows to do. One of the major props was sound actuated! We learned that popping a balloon worked just fine! (Perhaps also proving that Government regulation and "Hot Air" are substitutes.)

I was traveling to Boston to present at the S.A.M convention. In my carry on bag was my "heavy" finish for an ambitious card routine. Basically it is a 2 pound paper weight made to look like a deck of cards. The folks behind the walls couldn't tell what was inside. (of course nothing was inside but solid brass)

After that I pack it in the "cargo" luggage bag.

Your story involved a forgotten prop. One time I forgot I had a prop in my suit. It was a live "security tag". When I walked into Home Depot...the alarm went off. While I was explaining my job and the tag..the manager did not think it was funny. Other employees and customers were having a blast at my calm demeaner and patter.

My favorite line in the Batman movies...."Where does he get all those toys?"
