T is for Thaumaturgy

I came across the word "thaumaturgy" online, and within five minutes, this little drabble was born.  I had a great time writing this one, though it was so difficult limiting it to 100 words. My hands kept wanting to write more!


Craigslist ads attract all kinds. 

Stacy was searching for someone to fix her computer.  A man called a couple hours later, offering to do the job. 

When she opened the door to let him in, she was startled by the long purple robe he wore.  Great.   I got a weird one, she thought.

“Are you qualified to fix computers?” she asked hesitantly.

“I am a thaumaturgist,” he replied calmly.

“A what?”

“Thaumaturgy is the ability to perform magic.”

Her eyebrow arched quizzically.  “You’re a magician?  Why didn’t you say that instead?”

He smiled.  “You would have thought I was crazy.”
