During a game of pictionary, the word "magician" came up and was successfully drawn. I took the opportunity to mention that the word magician has its roots in the word "magi" which is how the visitors of young Jesus are described.
I mentioned that magi were believed to have special powers.
"Like a side kick?" asks almost 10 yr old Sister.
Before I could answer she adds "What is a side kick, anyway?"
"The friend of the main guy," I reply.
"But what about the other meaning of side kick?"
"Other meaning? There isn't any other meaning," I say. (Thinking to myself about other possible meanings of side kick that I am not remembering. No, that's all there is.)
And then it hits me.
