Candy Uri Geller!
|Guard your silverware, it's
Uri Geller! I love Uri Geller!
Uri is the
Uber-Mentalist of all time, a huge
since the 1970's when he baffled
the world with his amazing spoon bending
and clock-stopping and -starting feats. The first and
only mentalism book I ever read was The
Magic of Uri Geller
by James Randi. I
that book. I think
it was meant
to have a different
effect, though I could be wrong, but on me
the effect was to be totally thrilled
and fascinated with Uri Geller. I spent
two of the best
weekends of my life reading that book! It took me that long
because I was eating cookies
and flipping back and forth to look at the pictures!
Before I read The Magic of Uri Geller,
when mentalists came to the house, I wasn't
really included in the conversations
except the ones that went, "Hey, Cindy, get me a beer!" / "Okay!"
and "Hey, Cindy, get so-and-so another beer!" / "Here you go!" and
then there was always the one that went, "Can I get you guys
something to drink?" / "Yes, beer, thank you!"
After I read that book, every time mentalists
came to the house I'd beg
them for stories about meeting Uri Geller,
and I got a lot of them!
The next thing I knew, I was a part
conversations that were not
actually about getting beer, and they would sometimes
last until two or three in the morning! I learned
a lot and I liked it! And so, thanks to
Uri Geller, I am
in the know about
I know everything. Go
ahead, test me!* **

** Yes, I still get the beer.
