I've been lucky enough so far not to loose anything. It seems like it's just a matter of time though!

Sponge balls, sponge bunnies and thumb tips. The former because the buggers seem to have a habit of working their way from your pockets- especially if there's anything else in there, the latter through my own stupidity.

I've since learned that if I'm carrying sponge anything, NOTHING else goes in that pocket. Period.

Sponge balls. Other items tend to become misplaced around the house. My wife will move something, then a piece or part becomes separated from the other parts of the trick.

I have lost countless sponge items over the years, they just seem to vanish out of my pocket.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

I had a case table with half my show stolen back in the eighties. Was picking up a uhaul trailer and had to set the props outside of the hatch back... Just forgot to put it back in. When I realized it half an hour later and returned, it was gone for good. Someone in Louisville picked up a great show. Took a while to replace it all.

The one gimmick I have lost three times is the one that keeps my break away wand straight. It always goes in the same pocket, but just disappears. I suppose that's real magic.

Gaffed coins by far and that can get very expensive. They get mixed in with regular change and you just have to hope it's not too big a pile you have to work through. If the gaff coins make it to the change jar, you are doomed. I regularly scan my pocket change with a good magnet now to make sure magnetic ones can't escape me. Smile

I have lost (and later found) the same TUC three times now. Still looking for it this last time. :-(

Gaffed coins as well lol.. I always beat myself up about. Like "how stupid can I be"? ... Then do it again a few months later. I've often thought of how many trick coins are in circulation without anyone knowing.. You know it has to be a lot

TTs all day long. Ever seen a TT with feet? That would be mine, and he's late for dinner.

That's one thing I don't lose. In fact, if anything, I have TOO MANY decks!

I keep losing a vital part of Ignition. The part is supposed to be glued on, but it keeps falling off every now and then. I usually don't carry Ignition with me, but when I do, I always lose that part.

Spending the gaffes coins by accident is always a fear of mine. I haven't done it yet.

However, I've purposefully had to spend a Hundy many times? Smile
