A magician stops a woman on a street


A magician stops a woman on a street….

“Pick a card, any card” he says. 

She grabs one at random. 

“Now, look away and memorize that card.  Don’t show me.” 

She turns away, memorizes it, and turns back to see that the man was gone. 

She lived her life as any other.  She got a job, fell in love, got married, and got pregnant with her first child.

Fast forward 9 months.

“Push, PUSH” the midwife and doctors urged. “You’re almost there!” “The baby!  She’s crowning!” 

“But… what’s that in her HAND???” “It… it looks like…”

“Is THIS your card?” a familiar voice said.
