“Full-On, ‘Blowing Snot Bubbles, Can’t Breathe Because I’m Choking on Pure, Unfiltered Sadness’ […] Crying”

Matthew Collins is a website designer and former street magician who in July 2014 published, with the help of writer Cezary Jan Strusiewicz, an article titled “5 Hidden Dark Sides of Life as a Street Magician” on <Cracked.com>. At the end of the article, however, he pointed out that magicians can do good, and he told the story of a boy named Jimmy who was terminally ill with leukemia and who wanted to learn to perform some magic tricks. Matthew and Jimmy did magic together until Jimmy died four months later. Mr. Collins recounts, “Later, at his funeral, his father told me that I was the best thing that happened to his son since he was diagnosed. I started crying. Not a dignified, ‘one tear rolling down my cheek’ cry, either. We’re talking full-on, ‘blowing snot bubbles, can’t breathe because I’m choking on pure, unfiltered sadness’ type of crying. My little buddy was buried in a suit and tie, with the deck of cards I gave him on display in his front pocket.”
