Rylan vs. The Magician

talk to the hand

Apparently, Rylan feels the same way about magicians that some people feel about clowns.

We came across a street magician over at Cameron Village today. He was kneeling on the sidewalk with a big group of kids around him, and my three boys shouldered their way up to the front.

For some reason, Rylan became entranced by the magician's adam's apple and reached out to touch it. The man laughed a little and said, "That's my adam's apple. Do you want one?" Then he pretended to put his adam's apple on Rylan's neck. Rylan responded by punching the man in the arm.

"Rylan!" I said. "No, no. We don't hit."

Rylan took a step back, appraised the situation, and kicked the magician in the balls.

The magician said, "That is so not cool," and then doubled over in pain.

After punishing him, I asked Rylan why he did it, and he said that he thought the magician was a bad guy.


  1. I just laughed so hard, Tim wondered (from downstairs) what was going on up here.

  2. Poor magician! First Rylan touches him, then he strategically kicks him. Wonder when the bad guy assumption occurred?

  3. I admit, that made me laugh out loud. How funny. I don't think Abraham would even know to kick someone there, but my guess is that by the time Rex is 4 he will know. Older brothers influence.

  4. That story just made my day! How funny!

  5. oh my gosh, that is just SO funny. I'm sure you died of embarrassment at the time, but what a great story to tell at his missionary farewell... :)
