Juggling busker’s elation at earning £5.50

Juggling beginner and unemployed twenty-something Jessica Burton describes her elation at earning £5.50 while juggling on the streets of Cambridge.

“I’ve been drifting for over six months now and this is the first cash I have earned in all that time” she stated.

After practicing her skills for five months she took her act to the streets of Cambridge town centre and was overwhelmed by her success. In temperatures as low as six degrees she managed to keep three balls aloft for over 20 seconds at a time and almost nobody derided her for dropping one.

When asked what she would do with her cash she focused on hygiene: “My first purchase will be some dental floss from Poundland: since I’m not claiming benefits and can’t afford the dental subsidy, I really have to look after my teeth. Some deodorant would be good too.”

Her friends and family are reportedly “very happy” at the news that she is still alive.
