Every performer needs an effect that allows him or her to tell a story as the effect unfolds, and here, a fun story is used to frame an impossible transposition of two cards.
The routine gives a nice, visual frame to the separation of the two cards that transpose, and it’s the kind of conversational effect that’s perfect for real world situations.
You can present this as a semi-authentic magical anecdote, which people always enjoy, or you deliver it as a clean, straight forward, impossible to figure out transposition of two cards.
