Ever since we were little girls, we have been fascinated with the romance of wizardry, vampires and yes...magicians too. Our absolute favorite magician is David Copperfield (not to be confused with David Copperfield, the Charles Dickens novel).
Lisa still believes David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear. Yes. Seriously.
I once met a young magician when I was in high school a "few" years ago. I was attending a leadership event at a prestigious college. The other students were really mean to him. They teased and made fun of him. But I thought he was amazing.
*Flash forward "a few" years later.
I totally could have written the Harry Potter novels, if I wanted to ~ he looked just like Harry, glasses and everything.
So what is it about magicians? Is it their mysterious persona? Is it the thrill of seeing something with our own eyes that isn't possible, but our brain disagrees? Or is it that creepy way magicians sulk and sachet around the stage with wicked great music, kind of like Meatloaf?
Meatloaf, the singer not the food
There's no need to ask Claudia Schiffer. To answer our own question, why do we love magicians? Duh!
Because they're hot (like meatloaf, the food)!

P.S. Moral of the story: If you have creepy dreams in the middle of the night, you should take notes. You might get published. (a-hem... the Twighlight Series? yep. Saw that one coming too.) Oh, and Lisa has an interesting story about Meatloaf. The singer, not the food. We'll save that for another day.
