Well woke up as usual… to a cat chewing my hair out. I did the usual quick stuff before loading up my cart and taking myself to work. As usual, took a good 45 minutes of walking to get there. No one had tried to claim my spot. So far, so good.
I don’t start working until about 10 am. The crowd is thin, but I really need the cash, so, I put the suit on and drive in circles until I can’t take it anymore. One kind man drops a 5 into the bucket and lets the crowd know it. Then the crowd follows and drops tips of their own. This can sometimes be unheard of. I don’t make it too long before the heat gets me down.
That same guy came back and said he hadn’t got a video of it because his phone was acting up. So, after a quick smoke, I put it back on and work for about 15 more minutes, just for him. In that short time I had pulled about 60 bucks real quick, but I could see the crowd was hot and thinning out quickly. This heat is really gonna put a damper on things. I worked only once more before i felt myself shivering, and if I remember correctly that is a sign of a heat stroke. I called it quits. I had only made 93 dollars, but that’s good enough when I’m risking a heat stroke.
High temperature for the work day: 94 degrees. Saturday really needs to be lucrative… I don’t like struggling to get bills paid.
Now I am home and my first goal is to do laundry. I’ll then come back and write another blog just before I head out to go see my good magician friend Warpo.
