My family and I went on an awesome vacation to Sedona, Arizona, the Grand Canyon, and then to Las Vegas. The last night of the vacation was in Las Vegas and we went to see Penn & Teller which is a magic and comedy show. We got to our seats and waited a few minutes and talked. I was so excited I could not wait.

Penn & Teller did a lot of cool tricks. Then they called a person to do a trick with them and they said a young boy. They looked around and then the spotlight went on me and I said “Me!?!” I was so astonished and so happy. I went on the stage and then they told me to run with scissors. I said “where” (everyone laughed). Then I gave the scissors back.

They gave me a white sheet. Penn and I held the sheet across the stage. Teller cut it then knotted it together and then it became one piece. He did that again. After that, Penn & Teller tied the sheet around my neck then they pulled the sheet and then the sheet came off and I felt like a magician myself. I went off the stage and I got to keep the white sheet.
