           (An older person enters in a full black cape, glasses and  magician's top hat and baton)

Bonjour!  Guten tag!  Ni hao!  Helloooooooo to all my fans in Senior Channel land!

Good to see you all!

I am here again to dazzle you with all my magical skills!


          (He removes his glasses)

I have my glasses, right here......

           (He waves them around and puts them in his pocket)

And now......presto chango!.......they are....

            (He reaches into another pocket and removes sunglasses)

How did they get here?  They've been missing for two weeks!

And what's this?

            (He removes another pair of glasses from a different pocket)

These are the glasses I've been looking for since Thursday!

And what could this be?

             (He takes off his hat and looks in, laughing)

It's not a's not a' keys!

            (He removes the keys and waves them)

What other treasures do I have today?

            (He now empties all his pockets, revealing...)

My dentures!......and my hat!......and two pens......and my favorite....remote!

             (He holds up the remote triumphantly)

The piece de la resistance!

             (He takes a bow, waves to the audience, turns to leave, stops, looks back)

I always loved magic!  And now, I LIVE  magic!  Thank you!

             (He exits to a found world)
