Hot Pizza! Get Your Hot Pizza!

Scene opens on water cooler with 2 people standing around
You:Wicked cold this weekend, eh? What did you end up doing?
Me:Oh, you know, the usual: hung out at the quarry, caught up on computer work, dressed as a giant slice of pizza and juggled fire on the late night streets of Bellingham, much to the delight of the drunkards. Nothing too exciting..
You:Ga?
Me: I've told you about the quarry, right? It's this circus hippie commune where we all—
You:Yes, yes, I know about the quarry. What was that part about dressing like a slice of pizza and juggling fire?!?
Me:Oh, that. La Fiamma wood fire pizza is doing this promotion thing with the Bellingham Circus Guild to try and promote it's new late-night pizza by the slice. Della talked me into it. We thought: pizza juggling fire...wood fire pizza...get it? Get it?? We had a great time and even made a little bit of money in tips (plus a nice gift certificate), so that lets me maintain my "professional juggler" status for another year.
You:Professional?
Me:Sure. Any time you get paid for something, you're a professional at it, right?
YouSo you are saying that that time I won $5 on video poker makes me a professional poker player?
Me:Technically, yes, but we're getting off topic. Besides juggling fire, I did some fun rope tricks (people loved those), and general circus/juggling merriment. Good times.
You:Riiiiight. Anyway, I think I hear my boss calling me. Those TPS reports aren't going to file themselves, you know.
You slowly backs away from the water cooler while scene fades to black

Fire-juggling pizza doing rope tricks... Couldn't that send the wrong message (= Wood-fired pizza leaves your intestines tied up in knots)?

I'm confused... Why were you standing by a water cooler?

@MMM: A failed attempt at humor, I'm afraid. I guess water coolers aren't even a thing that people gather around anymore. But perhaps the better question is why were you standing by a water cooler*

If you're a professional you gotta pay taxes! Are buskers wages taxable? Za?
