I’m easily distracted. And it really doesn’t make it easy for me to pay attention in my religious studies class when there are people performing magic tricks all around me. The kids things can do with pens these days, I tell you—it’s enough to make me stop listening to our discussion of mysticism.
Am I the only one surrounded by pen-spinners? It seems like at least three or four kids in each of my classes has this hidden talent. I’ve done a little research, and it turns out that pen spinning is a legitimate hobby in Hong Kong.
The move most kids at MU seem to have mastered is the basic “thumbaround.” Check out the video below for a how-to. I have been trying it off and on for the past few hours, and let’s just say I don’t look cool. Maybe I’ll leave it up to the experts.
