Offer a spectator a blank card and an assortment of bold, colored marking pens. With your back turned, have her print her first name on the card and place it writing side down on the table. You insert the card into the "Get the Picture" envelope (obtaining a peek) as you explain that one's personality and interests often determine favorite colors. Proceed to give her a short cold reading, i.e., "You are a person who enjoys life and works hard to make the most of it. You also love travel, your family and warm fuzzy things." Now, the zinger. "A person with your unique and particular personality would choose to sign her name in purple, (or whatever you peeked at), isn't that right Doris?"
(Larry's note: Do this one and if it doesn't blow 'em away, try giving away money. All kidding aside, this is a dynamite routine for "Get the Picture")
