Pre Show and Materials

I use four envelopes. Three envelopes arc 3-5/S by (■>-Vz inches. I use standard white security envelopes. 1 prepare these envelopes as follows:

Knvclope 1: On the flap side, along the bottom of the envelope, I write Word/Book with a black Sharpie marker. Inside tins envelope I put a piece of white cardboard lor an index card) cut to lit. Wiriien on the cardboard is the word from page 92 of Book C ("Books Galore"). Example: "Difficult will be selected." I write "Difficult" as big as possible.

Envelope 2: On the flap side, along the bottom of tile envelope, I write Shape or Design with a black Sharpie marker. Inside this envelope 1 pkice another piece of cardboard. Drawn on the cardboard are the shapes learned from the pre-show, and revealed during my last demonstration ("Anything Can Be I.earned"), bxample. a circle with a star inside.

Envelope 3: On the flap side, along the bottom of the envelope. I write Rapid Math with a black Sharpie marker. Inside this envelope. I place another piece of cardboard.

Written on the cardboard is "_ will be selected." I

will fill in the blank after my opening demonstration ("Einstein's Demise").

Picture Fiap sides of smaller envelopes

1 he lourih and final envelope is a standard-size letter envelope (4-1/8 by 9-1/2 inches). This envelope is either blue or green, so people ean see a contrast between the smaller while envelopes and this one. Here I refer to tins envelope as the colored envelope.

1 place Lnvelopc I and Lnvelopc 2 back to back {flap side to flap side) to hide the writing. 1 put these inside the colored envelope. I place Knveiope 3 on the outside of the colored envelope, with the flap .side of Envelope 3 touching the address side of the colored envelope. 1 use a large paperclip to hold Lnvelopc 3 to the colored envelope.

I place this Way Ahead Envelope in my inside left coat pocket.
