Just thought I'd share this. I had my dollar coin with me while I was out and about today, practicing my classic palm. I decided my left hand needed it the most, so it was in that hand. Sometimes, when I'm in a shop ready to buy something, I'll pocket my coin so that I don't get it mixed up with the transaction, or drop it, etc. Anyway, I finished my purchase at the store and walked out with the bag in my left hand. I figured it was safe to retrieve the coin from my pocket, so I reached in with my right hand (I keep them in my Levis watch pocket), but the coin wasn't there! After 2 milliseconds of panic, I noticed that the coin was palmed in my left hand - the one holding the bag:-P!

For a moment, the palming was so unconscious that I forgot the coin was in my hand.

It's just little things like this - even after 8 months of practicing - that reinforce that the practice is working:).

Ha! Yeah, something like that happened to me too. I was performing for two kids at the place where I work out. Just some basic coin stuff, whatever I could think of that I felt like practicing. (Obviously I did the Cranium vanish.)

So it occurred to me to maybe do a handkerchief penetration with one of the small towels that were in the basket next to me. So I reached out to grab one, and as I did, I heard one of the kids go "hey, where did the coin go?" I realized that I had unconsciously palmed it to go pick up the towel, as I do whenever I'm fiddling and I need to pick something up!
