For Your Entertainment . . .


THE HYPNOTIST

It was entertainment night at the Senior Center. Claude the hypnotist exclaimed: "I'm here to put you into a trance; I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience."

The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. "I want you each to keep your eyes on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations."


Claude began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch . . . ."


The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, clearly under the spell of the hypnotist. Suddenly the family heirloom slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, shattering into a hundred pieces.

"Shit!!!," Claude exclaimed.

It took three days to clean up the Senior Center.
