Just Like Magic

Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. What is this magic? I need that magic. Magic is what happens when you’re on the toilet seat and suddenly five million dollar ideas hit you at once! The real magic is getting up from the toilet seat and pulling the flush handle, only for all the ideas to join the poop as in spirals down the drain. And that, good people, is why I go to the restroom with a pen and a jotter. It’s the reason you’re able to read this magical post.

Genie. As your genie, I’ll be granting you three wishes, think about your wishes carefully. A man rubbed the bottle I was in. When I appeared in all my glory, I asked him to make a wish. His one wish was that he wanted all the ladies to love him. So I turned him into a bar of chocolate. Another guy asked me to make him smarter than any other guy on earth, so I turned him into a woman. I’m sure you kinda get an idea the kind of genie I am. It’s too late for both of them by the way, with virtual reality, you can’t put the genie back in the bottle.

Abracadabra! Nope, you’re still an idiot. Magicians like myself are the most honest people in the world. We tell you we’re going to fool you, and then we do it. My ADHD makes it hard for me to focus and focus sounds like hocus pocus and I really like magic a whole lot. I think cinema, movies and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made movies were magicians. From the amazing soundtracks to the sensational acting, believe me, magic exists!

Life is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. There are superhumans among us. The problem was humans did not want to know about non-humans. Funny thing was most non-humans felt the same way, happy to hide their abilities and talents to avoid witch hunts and wholesale slaughter. Now look at us, we’ve killed almost all the witches, the rest are out of practice. Who will help us kill this polititicans and start a revolution the world needs?

When you quit believing the magic of life, you get life without magic. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. How do you explain that two men looked up at the sky and thought, let’s get a closer look. And built an airplane! It’s actually insane if you really deep it. For context, I just found out how to fit in two bowls into a microwave and I haven’t stopped talking about it. If I built the first airplane, I would be worshipped in all seven continents.

You don’t get into magic, magic gets into you. There’s no magic to achievement. It’s really about hard work, choices, and persistence. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. So, chop chop, there’s no time to waste! You control your destiny, you don’t need magic for that. There are no magical shortcuts to solving your problems. And know this, it’s still magic even if you know how it’s done. Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.

Rollercoaster. Next time you go on a roller coaster, take some spare bolts with you and tell the person in front of you, “Dude, these just came out of your seat.” Just for fun and a good laugh. One day you’re the best thing since sliced bread. The next, you’re toast. There are magical beautiful things in the world. There’s incredible acts of kindness and bravery, in the most unlikely places, and it gives you hope. Your life is in your magical wand, use it.

Can’t believe you read this entire load of crap
