Boston’s Best Adult Birthday Magician

So, here we are… February first. 2021. The pandemic is still a menace to the globe. I, like many other entertainers, am “running in the red.” It’s been a year without income, it will be the first time in years that I will not be sending a large check to the IRS in April. my expenses, even with serious cuts, far outweigh the miniscule income. But don’t feel bad for me. My retirement income, along with my wife’s, keeps a roof over our head with enough left for food.
Currently, two vaccines have received approval, with at least a couple more approaching on the horizon. I can hardly contain myself, but I must wait for my “turn”. You can see in the picture, I am using two masks. We are not really sure if this is beneficial. I come from the “more is better” school of thinking.
Last week, I received a request for an adult birthday performance. My response was to the point and succinct. “I perform with a mask and follow all guidelines of the State of Massachusetts.” the client assured me they take this virus seriously, and the number of guests would be below the limit. So we proceeded forward.
On January 31’st we were in the crosshairs of a Nor’ Easter, a major stumbling block for driving. This party was in jeopardy. The client contacted me and asked if it would be better to start early… I said, “yes, yes, yes!”
Honestly, the driving was not good… I took the back roads and drove slowly. I made it there with only two minor skids.
What a pleasure to perform. It has been so long. I don’t think the rust showed. We all had a good time, and I headed home. This time only one minor skid. I got in the door to the delight of my wife and dog.
I got changed out of my suit and relaxed in front of the TV. About an hour after I got home, the phone rings…guess who? It was Mike, the client. He was checking in to make sure I made it home safe. Wow, what a wonderful human being. They are still out there. Thanks Mike, you made my day. (Thank you for your more than generous tip as well.) I believe we will meet again.
