Surprise magic ・ マジックにビックリ

Today we had the "start of a new year"-party for the university staff. 90 minutes of eating and drinking copious amounts. I was talking to an old friend there, and he mentioned to some other professor that I was a magician. It turned out that this other person has recently started practicing magic, and he wanted me to show him something.

I said I did not have anything with me to do magic with, but he ran off to get his bag and produced a (Bicycle) deck of cards! I did a short trick, and he did some tricks himself. Later he asked me to do other tricks over and over, so I ended up doing quite a few during the course of the evening. I also ended up running out of business cards by handing out cards to everyone who expressed an interest in coming to our magic bar... I was quite surprised at finding a magician (in training) at the faculty dinner.

今日北大職員新年会に行って来た。90分の食べ飲み放題だった。友達と喋ったら、友達の知り合いの先生に紹介されて、「この外人さんがマジシャンなんだ」って。その先生も最近マジックの練習をし始めたそうだ!びっくり。何か見せてって言われた。

何も持って来てないと言ったがその先生が自分のバッグからまさかのバイシクルのトランプを取り出した、笑。僕が適当にトランプのマジックをして、彼も色々見せた。その後も何回もまた何か見せてと言われたので、結局色々やった。結局名刺も配りまくって、名刺切れた、笑。マジックバーが札幌にあること知らない人が多くて、マジック見たらもっとみたい人も多くて、名刺をもっと沢山持って行けば良かった。大学の職員の新年会でマジシャンに出会えると思わなかった。
