To Prepare

You will need a small cassette recorder and a blank cassette. I obtained mine from Radio Shack, the Realistic Minisette-9, model 14-812. In addition, you will need a second cassette or record player and a cassette or record of classical music. Record approximately five minutes of classical music on the blank cassette. Rewind the tape and make sure the tape counter is set on "000". Press the "play" button and when one minute has expired, press the record button and using the following script, record same in a hushed tone:

SCRIPT: (In a hushed whisper)

This is (your name) speaking. No one can hear me right now except you, so please keep a straight face and pretend you're listening to the music. I need your help and cooperation. Together, we can really baffle everyone in this room. In a few moments, when I ask you to think of any word in the english language, please choose the word "pleasure." Remember, when I ask you for a word, you answer, "pleasure," and please keep our little secret or you'll spoil the fun for everyone. Thank you. Please wait until I signal you to remove the earphone and, don't forget, the word is "pleasure."

As soon as you have completed recording the above script, turn off the cassette player and rewind the cassette. Using a stop watch, turn on the cassette player and press the "Play" button. Check the exact length of the recorded music before your recorded script begins. Ascertain and record the eaxact length of the recorded message. You should still have a couple of minutes worth of recorded music left.
