MAGIC WORDS There are three words to immediately remove from your magic vocabulary: 1. Trick 2. Misdirection 3. Spectator Here’s why: 1. Dogs do tricks. Magicians do magic. Magic tricks belong in the oxymoron bin, with jumbo shrimp and honest politicians. For what is magic isn’t a trick and what can be proven a trick isn’t magic. An appearing tiger is magic. But if you see the trap door, you’re watching an appearing-tiger magic trick. And tricks have a negative connotation. I hate being tricked.
