Lincoln: Mom! Pick a card! Any card!
(I pick a card)
Me: Do I need to look at it?
Lincoln: Not really
(I put the card back and he proceeds to clumsily shuffle the deck)
Lincoln: Okay, what did your card look like.
Me: I don’t know, you said I didn’t need to look at it.
(A look of confusion passes over his face)
Lincoln: Okay, start over. Pick a new card.
(I pick a new card and look at it this time…as does Lincoln. Card goes back. Another clumsy shuffle.)
(He proceeds to go through the cards one by one until he finds the card I picked.)
Lincoln: Is this your card?!
Lincoln: That is my new trick. I have been practicing.
Me: It was amazing.
