  1. Palm: To hold an object in an apparently empty hand.
  2. Ditch: To secretly dispose of an unneeded object.
  3. Steal: To secretly obtain a needed object.
  4. Load: To secretly move a needed object to where it is hidden.
  5. Simulation: To give the impression that something that hasn’t happened, has.
  6. Misdirection: To lead attention away from a secret move.
  7. Switch: To secretly exchange one object for another.

Simple, huh?
