Almost meeting a Canadian magician

Yesterday at around midnight, one of my magic bar colleagues suddenly called me and asked where I was. I said I was drinking with my colleagues, why? He said that a famous Canadian magician was coming to the magic bar in half an hour or so, so maybe I should also come.

It was about time to leave the bar we were drinking at anyway, so I said sure. It turned out to be raining almost unbelieable amounts outside, so I had run very quickly home but still goat completely soaked. I changed into dry clothes, found an umbrella and headed off to the magic bar. When I got there, it turned out that "since it was raining almost unbelieably hard", the Canadian magician and his party had given up on going to the magic bar... So I almost, but not quite, met a famous Canadian. I wonder who it was? No one seemed to have been told his name. The number of pro-magicians from abroad that come to Sapporo cannot be high, I think.

昨日、真夜中に突然マジックバーの同僚から電話掛かってきた。どこにいる?って。昼の仕事の同僚とすすきので飲んでいる。何で?後30分くらいでカナダ人の有名なマジシャンがマジックバーに来るから来たら?って。

飲み放題がもう終わっていたから、そろそろ帰る時間だったから、行く!って言った。店から出たら、大雨だった。一生懸命走って帰ったのに、びしょ濡れ。家で着替えて、傘を取って、マジックバーに行った。付いたら、「あ、雨が大変過ぎて、カナダ人たちがマジックバーに行くのを諦めたって」と言われた…カナダ人のマジシャンに会えなかった。誰だったんだろ?気になる。誰も名前知らなかったみたい。札幌に来る外国人のプロマジシャンがなかなかいない。
