I went to Center City Park again to juggle on Saturday from 5 to 6 pm. I don’t have a routine down well enough to call myself a performer, so I tell people that I’m practicing, which is the truth. Even so, a father and his son approached me and watched me juggle 3 clubs for a minute. The the father handed a dollar to the boy, who looked to be about 4 or 5 years old. The boy offered the dollar to me in his outstretched hand. I said, “No, no. I’m not doing this for money.” The boy turned around and looked at his dad and his dad gestured toward me again. I then accepted the dollar and thanked them profusely. It seems silly now, but at the time I said, “This is the first dollar I made from juggling. I’m going to have it framed.”
Later a group of three boys and a girl came by and watched me juggle. I asked if any of them knew how to juggle. I got out all of my balls and rings and let them practice, first with two props and then with three. The three boys, were able to flash 3 balls and on occasion make 5 or 6 catches. They said they might come back next Saturday to practice some more.
Update: I missed last Saturday and I feel terrible, but I had to work an extra shift at work. I’ll get back out there.
