magic Believe it or not a simple French drop was actually the trick that got me started in magic. In elementary school, I was often teased because I had a stuttering problem. I had a serious dilemma with my speech and I had to do many speech exercises and things- in front of everybody. I just got sick of it after time and I started crying in my school recess. Nobody noticed except a teacher (his name was Robert Wentworth and I still am great friends with him). He showed me a simple French drop and i was immediately calmed. It was just amazing. He taught me how to do it and from that moment is was addicted to magic. After I progressed, I went to the park to perform the two card transpo effect (which I learned off You tube) to a random person. I had no problem with shyness or nervous at that age. After I performed it an old man sitting on a bench, he was shocked. He started telling me "You just made my day, Son." That right there was all I needed.
