Claude the Hypnotist!

April 2, 2013

It was entertainment night at the senior citizens’ center.

After the community sing song led by Alice at the piano,

it was time for the Star of the Show, Claude the Hypnotist!

Claude explained that he was going to put the whole audience

into a trance.

“Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time”

said Claude.

The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully withdrew from his

waistcoat pocket a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.

“I want you to keep your eyes on this watch” said Claude,

holding the watch high for all to see. “It is a very special and

valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations.”

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while

quietly chanting, “Watch the watch — Watch the watch —- Watch the watch.”

The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and

forth, the lights twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.

A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently

swaying watch. And then, suddenly, the chain broke! The beautiful

watch fell to the stage and burst apart on impact.

“Sh*t!!” said Claude.

It took them three days to clean the Senior Citizens’

Center…and Claude was never invited to perform again.
