I’m still working on my presentation skills for my ta-da magic trick, though I have mastered the actual trick. I’m staggered that I haven’t spilled the beans on how it’s done, as I’m completely indiscreet, but in truth this may be because no one has actually asked me how on earth I did it. I can’t ‘independently verify’ here that I’ve learnt my trick, and I also can’t prove that I’ve learnt the phonetic alphabet. But I have, I totally have. I’ve noticed that what the phonetic alphabet lacks in daily uselfulness, it more than makes us for by giving you the tiniest feeling that you could almost be a spy (Sierra Papa Yankee), living beyond the law and communicating by cypher only.
