Ahefo hctmwhet bto[fyshstbjs. I’m sorry, my fingers are tired from having too much Fun With Hand Shadows. My “deer roaming the forest” looked more like advanced arthritis, but that’s because I’m not Sati Achath (and that’s not a typo, my fingers are working again). Achath holds four master’s degrees and speaks six languages, but has wisely decided to focus his energies on teaching the world antiquated parlor tricks. He can do the deer, he can do the bird, he can do, he claims, Michael Jackson dancing (careful!). And he has placed this valuable knowledge in a book, Fun With Hand Shadows, so that you, too, can gohwue ozvuheh q;ehteih. Ouch! Achath will be demonstrating and signing his book at 2 p.m. at Borders, 534 N. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg. FREE. (301) 921-0990. (Dave Nuttycombe)
