Let me tell you why I started doingcold reading.For many years I made my livinghere in the Phoenix and Scottsdalearea as a Jack-of-all-trades magician.A large aerospace company washaving its holiday banquet at one of the area's well-known resort hotelsand engaged me to provide tablesidesleight-of-hand entertainment.I approached one of those "ten tops"(a round table seating ten persons)and before I could deliver my firstclever line, a woman turned towardsme, and in her most condescendingvoice said, 'You're going to do tricks, aren't you? We are having a goodtime here, go to one of the other tables!"As with most entertainers, I have learned to handle rejection, but seldomdid that rejection come before I
anything...so I worked an adjacenttable. I concluded my set at that table with Alex Elmsley's "Betweenthe Palms", a lovely card piece wherein the signed selected card appearsbetween the spectator's palm-to-palm hands. It rates a 10.0 for impactand a 3.8 for difficulty. Taking the signed card from the lady whosehands I borrowed, I thanked her and delivered a short, impromptupalm reading.After I thanked those at the table for their attention, I turned toleave...and there were three ladies standing in line behind me, all withtheir palms extended, eager for a reading. One of them was
the woman
who chased me from the other table!
It doesn't take a nuclear detonation to get my attention.I hope I have yours.
