The knife sharpener at the farmer's market that we visit almost every Sunday morning gave Elysha their card a few weeks ago. Rather than a collection of information on a small bit of card stock, they offered her this.
A band-aid with their name and phone number printed on the wrapper.
Clever. Right? I always admire people who can turn the ordinary into something delightful. Something ordinary into something a little more extraordinary.
It's almost as good as the playing card that appeared in the breast pocket of my sports jacket containing the contact information of world renowned magician David Blaine. I met Blaine at The Moth Ball in 2015, and after re-telling my story so he could record it on his phone, he said he wanted to speak to me further about storytelling and "gave" me his card.
It was already in my pocket. The king of spades, with his contact information woven within.
Remarkably, that was the least amazing of the magic that he performed for me after recording my story.
