Get things going in a setting where everyone’s enjoying a coffee or tea. Place your thumb on the hole of the key and press it firmly. It’ll form what looks like a blister – just don’t reveal it yet. Grab your cup of warm beverage and get the show on the road.
Hot to Touch
Getting attention with a simple technique can be fun, especially when it results a smile. This can be done with nothing more than a simple key in your pocket and a warm drink.
How’s your coffee?
Start to look a little flustered holding the cup with your fingers.
Man, mine is so hot, be careful with this stuff.
Pretend that you’ve just burned your fingers and place the cup down, shaking your hands from the fake pain.
Reveal the ‘blister’ the coffee gave you. When they show some concern, gently rub on the ‘blister’ and it’ll soon disappear.
- I told you, this drink is blisteringly hot.
- How does it look, do I need to call an ambulance?
- I’ve got magic fingers, they can heal a blister in seconds.
Prep more than only your thumb, including a fake blister on all your fingers to add to the effect. Take it to another level by showing the thumb on your other non-holding hand (pressed against the key in your pocket) has also somehow gotten a blister, without even touching the cup.
It’s so hot, even my other hand got a blister.
Do you need some ice for that?
Can you pop one of those blisters?
Does this one always get a thumbs up?
- When you want to warm up a situation.
- When you want to get people curious.
- When you want to get people smiling.
- the office canteen
- customer visits
- informal gatherings
- socializing at the pub
- the breakfast table
- A key – like your front door key
- Squeeze your thumb on the hole at the top part of the key, for about 15 seconds, and make sure the “blister” is visible.
- Try this on your own first and you will get the hang of it in no time.
- Don’t go getting any real blisters.
