IHOP stands for MAGIC!

Well... I was going to go to bed at about 11:30pm tonight, since I have a math test tomorrow at 9am... but I accepted Rebecca's invitation to go to IHOP with her instead XD. I probably wouldn't have slept anyway ^^;. But something strange happened at IHOP... *MYSTICALNESS!!!*

While we were waiting for our food, the waiter, Jeremy, came up to our table at put a glass, spoon, fork, and toothpick on our table. We both made very convincing wtf faces, and I think he may have been speaking in tongues, because he said "Balance both the fork and spoon on this toothpick, but only the toothpick can touch the cup." Then he walked away XDD;. Rebecca and I both firmly had our wtf faces firmly in place, but started messing around with the fork, spoon, and toothpick. Finally I put all three items into the cup and said hooray! but he said that was incorrect. Damn. So he takes the spoon and fork and weaves them or something, and TA-DA!



I didn't get a picture of it before HE BURNED THE TOOTHPICK HALFWAY. And it still didn't fall off? We both were all saucer-eyed XD.



But oh no, he's not done yet. After we were done eating, he brought over a plate with water on it, a lemon wedge, a cup, and a toothpick. This time he's speaks in Chinese proverbs or something, because he said "You have to get the water into the cup without tilting or picking up the plate. You can't use your mouth, a spoon, fork, napkin, or straw, or use the lemon as a squeegee (M: omg, lemon squeegee O.O???). You are missing one object, though." I just kinda sat there at giggled at the cup, since it was getting pretty late by then, but when the waiter came back, Rebecca asked him for his lighter XD. After much deliberation and witty banter from the waiter, she stuck the toothpick in the lemon, put the lemon in the middle of the water on the plate, set the toothpick completely on fire, and then put the cup over it.



OMG, MAGIC! They said something about sciencesomethingsomething, but I feel like I witnessed something vaguely Harry Potter'esque at IHOP tonight. Yay for magic ^__^. *applauds Rebecca for figuring it out* The waiter said Rebecca was the first out of about 50 people to solve that trick XD.

Of course, I wonder if he ever gets in trouble for bending the forks and setting things on fire there XD;. The manager came by once, and was all "You guys have Jeremy, don't you? How would I EVER know that?" XDD. I don't think I've ever been so entertained at IHOP before XD;.

But like I said, I have a math test tomorrow, so I'd probably actually get to sleep sometime tonight/this morning ^^;. Not that being awake has ever helped me on a math test. Maybe I can set my test on fire? Jeremy would be proud, mayhaps ^^;. *twirls away to bed*

O.O That is what I call true magic then! Or perhaps it really is just science something something. Omg imagine Inui trying to impress Kaidoh with that (on their first dinner date). Um... *hides plot bunny*

Good luck on the math exam!!!!!!!!1 AND YOUR SNOOTY TEACHER PERSON OMG CHUCK HIS SILVER EDITION OUT THE WINDOW! Honestly. XD;;

Omg, you know you want to write that XDD. Inui would accidentally set a napkin on fire though, or something ^o^.

Haaaaai! I'm getting ready for class, and then I'm off to take mah test! And then I'll go sleep through Econ! And then I'll be done for the day, because I don't have history on Fridays, and band was cancelled today for some reason ^.^V. I'm going to my parents' house this weekend, so whilst my lounging around, I'll make sure to bug you somehow XD.

I'm trying to see if it's feasible enough to include it into the fic. Or if I'm just trying to force it in, which I don't want... to appear that way. XD;;

I HOPE YOU DID GET SOME SLEEP!

Well, it is kind of a weird trick, so don't force it if you don't have to XD. You could have Inui pull a kitten out from behind Kaidoh's ear instead, or something XDD.

I DIDN'T REALLY, but I've managed to pass out since that night ^^. *had fun sleeping in until 10:30am today*

I'll stick it in another fic because I think the epilogue ended nicely at... where I ended. XD

I still think it's just about the weirdest thing in the world that our waiter came up and was doing scientific magic'y tricks for us XD. We'll probably go back later and request him, to see if he has any new tricks XD;. MAGIIIIC <3!

Haaaai, I already ganbatte'd, and I think I did pretty good on my test ^_^. I'll wait to celebrate until I get it back, so I'm not all WHOOOOO, I GOT AN A! and then I actually got a D or something XD;.

Whooo, I did get an A ^o^. I'm glad this teacher posts our grades online, as to not create the endless nervous anticipation that most other classes have ^^;. Thanks for the good vibes, I'm sure I would've gotten an X or some other horrid letter if weren't for you ^_^.

Sounds like an awesome (supper?) dinner! =) They do the water-trick in Petrosains and random science shops over here but the toothpick one? Wow.

Also, because I have selective reading skillz and just woke up, I completely missed the test part, orz. Good luck on it; go pwn it so hard it's grandfather feels the pain! =D

Well, no one else in the history of IHOP does tricks for its customers, I think XD;. That's why I was so surprised-- they usually just forget to refill your drinks and bring your food out late, not give entertainment XD.

And yay, I did indeed pawn the test ^_^V. Which is good, because if I don't get good grades right now while it's supposedly easy, then I'm gonna be in trouble when everything gets more difficult ^^;. *will try to not think about that now*

I might have figured out one of those tricks... if it hadn't been past the time where my brain likes to permanently check out XD;. I was pretty loopy.

I got an A on my test I've found out, yay ^o^. Sorry about your test >.>. I shall make sure to send lots and lots of good vibes your way for your next test, so you do better ^.^.
