|Alex's magic trick. Nikon D7000|
Alex has a magic trick of 'find the ball' that we all know how to do now (and I bet you could guess the secret ...). I had one too as a child, but mine was orange.
I remember showing everyone the trick whenever an opportune occasion arose.
There was also one April Fools day where beforehand, I trained my Father into the art of making the ball disappear. On the morning of the special day (it was a Saturday), I gave the trick to my dad so that he could show mum for 'April Fools'. Being the weekend, they were having a lie in. What dad did not realise until it was too late, I had filled the trick with water :)
With hindsight, how the trick never got stuffed up my arse by irritated victims I do not know.
