You Said, ‘Pick Any Card’
“Magician: Pick any card. Me: *Taking his credit card* The Magician: *blank face*.” Hey, the magician said you could pick any card. Those were his words verbatim. This person was merely trying to adhere to his instructions. If he wanted them to pick a playing card, he should have specified!
Now, the real baller move would’ve been to pick the playing card and stealthily swipe his credit card. In one fell swoop. It can be done! Just ask any pickpocket from 1800s London. The key here is to not get caught. You know, like anything that requires sticky fingers.
