Jett, won't your dad have something to say about you auctioning off your soul? He didn't sound like someone I'd wanna piss off. I'll cross my toes for you that it works out for you. (I'd cross my fingers, but it'd make work awfully difficult for me.)

Jett Loe

Jett Loe I'm sure we're all imagining what kind of work you do Julie...champion cross-bow marksman? welder? sushi chef?


I'm a sidewalk string-figure performer. That's right. I make my living sitting on a busy sidewalk, my hat turned over next to me for donations, and a loop of string in my hands with which I perform Jacob's Ladder, Cats Cradle, and other popular string figures. Sometimes I bring home as much as 87 cents and 3 pieces of lint. Yes, people give generously, and occasionally quite a crowd gathers. It's that exciting.
