My agent said it was a proper gig this time.
He said "Bernie, it's the real deal! A real magic show with a proper magician and everything'. I should've known Gerry was lying. I've been in this business for years and all he ever books for me are weddings.
I suppose wedding are nice, but when you've been to one you've been to 100.
I want a real gig, a recurring gig, not this "fly away now bird" because it's some symbolic thing for the humans.
I've always dreamed of having my name up in lights or, at least, on the programme. I want to wow the audience with my brilliance and my skill. I want to hear the crowd clapping and cheering me on! Ah, the fame and fortune I would amass!
"Go on now"
Oh, go away humans! Can't you see I'm dreaming about my big debut?
