My Favorite Party Trick: A Tutorial

By  | 

My all-time favorite party trick is guaranteed to make you the hit of the party, or the dinner table, or the bus, or the grocery store… you get the picture.

I’ve been using this trick for years.

During my first week as a freshman in college, I used this trick as I walked around my dorm meeting everyone I would be living with for the next year. I used it as my “closer” just as I was walking out of their room – but it could have been a great opener too.

I know this trick helped Even Steven fall madly in love with me. I used it just one week before he popped the question.

I found it to be a great way to break the ice at important work meetings. It’s perfect for making connections and building strong relationships.

And my mother always does it at family reunions. It’s especially popular with the Greeks.

So – without any more teasing – watch the video below to learn my all-time favorite party trick.

Note: No children were harmed (or neglected) in the making of this video. The screaming you may hear is Simon playing in his exersaucer. His new favorite trick is attacking the spinning globe.

    Oh man, that is funny but I can’t show that to my 3 boys or my Superhubby. As it is, I have trouble with them making REAL farting noises all the time…for rock band our band name is Symphony of Flatulence for a reason! I guess if I do your trick maybe I can keep up with them!
