My Name, Unfortunately, is Alacazam

My name unfortunately is Alacazam. My dad is a magician and my mom is his assistant. She has been sawed in half about a million times, but don’t worry, she has been put back together after each one. I can’t begin to tell you how often my dad has made me disappear and then reappear.

Well today, I was going about my normal business when Rodney shouted at me from across the cafeteria, “Hey, Alacazam…” Before he could finish, I found myself in my bedroom.

So here I am, sitting on my bed wondering how I was able to make it from the cafeteria to my bedroom. I can’t figure it out.

I need your help. I need you to say my name and get me back to the cafeteria. That’s the only thing I can think of that will work. Try it.

Hm. Maybe try again, but this time a little louder.

So this isn’t what I expected. At least we know my name is magic. Must have been the Brussel sprouts my dad made me eat last night. No one eats those and stays normal. Seriously, though… You have to get me out of here. This time, say my name, but keep your eyes closed.

Great. What am I going to do? Rodney is probably freaking out because I disappeared in front of his eyes. My parents are going to be looking for me after school. Definitely blaming this on the brussel sprouts. Never eating them again. Let’s try this: Say “Abracadabra” first, then my name. My dad does that before he puts my mom back together and it works for her. Ready? Go!

What is this place? Do you know where I am? I can’t stay here. No way! Let me think… Oh, I almost forgot! There is one more thing we can try. This will be tricky. Do you have a magic wand? Here, I have one in my pocket you can use. Wave the magic wand in a circle while you say “Abracadabra Alacazam!”

Thanks for your help. I will need my magic wand back. Maybe it isn’t just a prop after all.

You didn’t quite get me to the cafeteria, but close. I can handle this. Do you think if I eat more brussel sprouts I will stop disappearing to weird places? I just hope no one…

“Hey! Alacazam! Where did you go?”
Uh oh!
