The Magician's Fork

A sideshow at the birthday party:

My little three year old comes up to me with a green silk scarf...

"I need you to tie this awound me so I can be a magician."

"Ok." I tie the scarf around her - no easy task because she keeps twisting her entire body to look over her shoulder.

"I need you to hold still so I can tie it."

"I need to see if you are doing it wight."

Once the scarf is tied to both of our standards she says,
"Gweat. Now I need to cast a spell on something."

She looks around furtively.

Next, I see her standing in front of a painting in the living room with a fork.

"Abwa Cadabwa - make this picture disappear!" She says with a magicians flourish... then...

"Hey. Why that picture still there?" She looks at the fork in her hand and mutters to herself, "Maybe because this not a weal wand..."
