    Tales From the City

    What’s the magic word?

    I was talking on the phone with my 3-year-old granddaughter when she asked if I would bring her a gift the next time I came to visit. I said I would be happy to, but “What’s the magic word?” She paused for a minute, thought about it, and then blurted out “Abracadabra!”
