I've performed comedy and magic for 23 years. My wife has seen it all. She knows about DL's and ITR's because of her NHWSAHAPHSDATT (nerdy husband who sits at home and practices his second deal all the time).
Anyhoo, I watched the Torched and Restored tutorial, ran through it a couple times, and set off to show my jaded little wife. Long story short, it floored her. I'm talking, jaw dropped open, mumbling under her breath, fooled her. Believe me, that doesn't happen very often. Like I said, she knows to much. She immediately jumped over the kitchen table, knocking me to the floor, totally making out with me. I was like, "What's this all about?". She was all like, "Because of that trick! It was the sexiest thing I've ever seen!" I was like, "Cool! Let's do this thing!"
Okay, not really. Yes, the trick fooled her badly, because it's that good, but I believe her exact words were, "Wow! I have no idea how you did that! That was great! Now, you need to get those dishes done." I went ahead and did the dishes, but believe me, that was the happiest I've ever been while doing dishes. I just fooled my toughest (and hottest) critic. You will, too. Thanks Brent! Well done.
