I was doing a party outside today. Everything was going great. about 25 kids, all having a great time. Started my "ABC...Stung" routine and just as the B disappears, 2 real bees appear! They start flying around as I am trying to get the kids focus back. Hard to do when any part of the group is jumping and ducking and yelling. Finally finished the trick. I think the only thing to make it any more appropriate is if at the end of the trick, when the card is turned over to reveal the word "stung", one of bees actually does! But alas, no such luck. Well, it could have been worse. At least I wasn't performing ____ (fill in the blank).

At least you weren't in the middle of the Chair Suspension and the child laying on the unit sits up in the commotion and the whole thing tips over.

OR At least you weren't performing the floating rose and the assistant starts swatting at the bees and breaks the IT killing the illusion.

Bill Knight, It's a glitch in the matrix.

BigMagic, is the question, What effect would be really unfortunate if it became real? If so, I would say it could have been worse if you were sawing someone in half.

I'm allergic to bee stings, so I would have probably lost my focus too!
