Last week I had not one but two magic gigs back to back.
The first one was really interesting because it took me a little out of my comfort zone. Usually I walk around a party with a crystal ball doing contact juggling (like the movie Labyrinth) which sets me apart so when I approach a group of people to perform, they already know that something is going to happen.
This time, they wanted me in a business suit, with convention badge and wanted me to walk amongst the "real" business people, pretending to be one of them, and then at the right moment, start doing some magic. I was so nervous and uncomfortable the first couple of times, but by my third group I was thinking, "This isn't so bad", and by the end, I was having a lot of fun with it.
The next day, was another strolling event, but this time the boyfriend was working too! He was doing stilts, and I was walking around doing magic. He's so amazing on those things! He walks the peg stilts which are small on the bottoms (no feet) kind of like crutches. He dances up there, skips, does time steps, and really brings meaning to the phrase "turning on a dime". I tried to take a couple of pictures before the gig, but now my phone has hidden them from me.
Remember to tune in tomorrow for the "Sunday Funday Video of the Week"!
