Hey Guys! How many of you out there have had weird, random jobs? I have certainly had my fair share. As a performer you don't always know where your next paycheck is going to come from, so when jobs come along you take them no matter how strange they are. Some of the weirder jobs I have had involve some sort of costume and handing out free samples or coupons. It's pretty common to see people doing this kind of work here in NYC, especially around the Times Square area. But even so it can be pretty embarrassing, depending on what kind of costume you're wearing. I have definitely worn some embarrassing ones and here's one example:
Yep, I was a pickle and I was handing out coupons for some new kind of pickle that came out. Thrilling work, huh? What can I say - a mule's gotta do what a mule's gotta do. I definitely got my fair share of interesting comments from passers-by. I think my favorite was from a little kid who asked his mom: "Why is that hot dog green?" Kids are so funny, I was cracking up for hours! Happy Tuesday, catch y'all later!
