OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES. . . . !

Recently, Fluffy and I performed at a child's birthday party. It was a wonderful time and the children were having lots of fun! Then I "Silly Willy" decided to do some pocket magic. I brought out the magic ring and chain trick. This trick was impressive with the crowd of onlookers. A 7 year old said " let me try it, I bet I can do it!" He tried and tried and tried. . . . . . . but could not do the trick. I said it took Silly Willy 4 hours to do the trick the first time and it takes lots of practice. The 7 year old says "OK then tell me how you do it !" I said " We can only show a clown or a magician. Those are the rules! ! ! The 7 year old says "I'm going to become a magician when I grow up!" I said, "Great, then you come back then and I'll show you the trick!" The 7 year old looked me in the eyes and said, "You'll probably be dead by that time!" I was speechless!

P.S. When we were leaving the party, the 7 year old thanked us and gave us a "Big Hug!"

I was temporarily speechless! Then I started laughing and said," I certainly hope not!" Kids are the
greatest natural comics. Art Linkletter was right! Kids say the Darnedest things!
God Bless them all!
