Junior Freya Cook putting her hands over her face out of shock for being fooled from the magic trick. Feb. 11, Cook was asked if she wanted to see a magic trick; she did, and therefore, she had no idea how what happened was possible. “I was really fooled, because I didn't understand how you let me count a number, or find a number, and then you just go through the deck and count like that, and it's right there. Like, I don't know how you made it end up being right there. Like, it was exactly where I said,” said Cook.

Junior Freya Cook is fooled to a whole new level. 

After performing a magic trick to Cook, she was very entertained and was very fooled.

Cook enjoyed watching the trick and was very confused. She enjoyed the way the magic trick was carried out and performed. If Cook had the chance, she would definitely hire me as a form of entertainment, for an event. 

Cook was completely bewildered on how the magic trick was done. “I was really fooled, because I didn’t understand how you let me count a number, or find a number, and then you just go through the deck and count like that, and it’s right there. Like, I don’t know how you made it end up being right there. It was exactly where I said,” said Cook. During the trick, she had to pick a card, she had to put the card back in the deck, the deck was then shuffled, then put in the box, and then she said a number one through 52, and that is exactly where her card was.  

On a scale from zero to 10, Cook believes that she is a 10 when it comes to her being entertained. “10; mainly because I’m a big fan, and I think that the magic trick was very well done,” said Cook. Cook is specifically a big fan of my magic. 

When it comes to the performance of the trick and the way that the trick was carried out, she thought it was very well put together, but that there could be an improvement on one thing. “The magic trick was very well done, very well performed, put together, and done nicely,” said Cook, “I guess, the only thing that I really have to say that you can maybe improve on trying to slow down speech. That’s the only thing. Yeah, that’s it. Other than that, you’ve got it down.”

If Cook knew how the magic trick was done, therefore, not being fooled; she would definitely go out and perform this magic trick. “Honestly, I would, but that’s because it looks amazing. It’s kind of hard to do magic tricks, and when you do them for people, sometimes they can be pretty amazed; it’s cool,” said Cook. She believes that magic can just really fool people if performed the right way. 

Cook would definitely hire me as a form of entertainment for an event. “You would not have to ask me twice (to hire me as a magician for a specific event). I definitely would, because you are my friend, and your magic is amazing,” said Cook, “Yes (other people should hire me as a magician for their event), because you are very entertaining. You can actually do the magic trick successfully for the first time.”

Cook would definitely be interested in seeing another magic trick. “I obviously would be interested in seeing another magic trick, because I feel like you can do so much more, and I know your talent is there. So, you definitely got something there,” said Cook. 

Now, if you’re interested in seeing a magic trick from me, and getting to be on, “Brodie’s Monthly Magic,” or you have a friend that you think would be interested in that, then you can email me at [email protected].
