Magic of the $2 Bill:

We start collecting $2 bills weeks before the cruise. We take with us $20--$30 in $2 bills. I call these our magic potion. I take a $2 bill and keep folding it until I have a small square, with the large imprint of the $2 covering the surface. I use the $2 bills a lot in the beginning of the cruise. It's important what you say when you give it, otherwise it doesn't have much significance. When I give it to a server, I say to them, “Give me your hand.” When they give me their hand, I take it and with my other hand I show them the folded $2 bill; then I say to them, “I want you to know this is a magic $2 bill and I can promise you that during this coming week something special is going to happen to you, something that will make you very happy, and when it happens we want you to come tell us.” Very few servers have ever seen a $2 bill and that alone gets their rapt attention. Then you can see by their quizzical expression that their thinking; it's crazy but who knows, it might work. Who among us doesn't have some form of a lucky piece? A lucky coin, a rabbits foot, a religious medal. We’ve had the most amazing, wonderful things happen as a result of giving out these two dollar bills; not the least is the friendliness and the exceptional service we have received from our servers. [If you don’t tell the story, the effect is greatly diminished]

Hi Tom & Mary,

Love this tip
I can foresee lots more magic going on soon.

By the way I got an invite to a special Captain's Circle Luncheon on the Crown. So I will be seeing Generoso & Godwin next week. Can't wait.
I'll be sure to tell them The Honeymooners send their best.

Take Care
