The charge from the school district — Wizardry!
Substitute teacher Jim Piculas does a 30-second magic trick where a toothpick disappears then reappears.
But after performing it in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land 'O Lakes, Piculas said his job did a disappearing act of its own.
"I get a call the middle of the day from the supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, 'Jim, we have a huge issue. You can't take any more assignments. You need to come in right away,'" he said.
When Piculas went in, he learned his little magic trick cast a spell that went much farther than he'd hoped.
"I said, 'Well Pat, can you explain this to me?' 'You've been accused of wizardry,' [he said]. Wizardry?" he asked.

I can see the just born again Christians doing this. I knew one and the word is knew that said the same thing about almost anything having to do with slight of hand or things of that sort. Ofcourse he was from the South and talk about being brainwashed about all things. It got to the point that I don't see them any longer. I had to take valiums just to get over it. But thats me. Hopefully the school will see better. Hopefully.
