At what other job would this be yelled at you?

I use a three foot long Indian cavalry sword for my sword dance. I perform fast martial arts moves, and hypnotic feats of balance - and just for fun it's a sharp blade. This was evidenced last Saturday night at El Mansour. While doing my first overhead spin I must've been too close to the tented ceiling and accidentally sliced a seven inch gash. The audience gasped, I told them "Yes, this is a sharp sword" and had their rapt attention the rest of the show. There were many more ten dollar bills in my tips that night! But the funniest moment was when a beautifully eight month pregnant woman walked through the dance space as I was performing. From the "girls night out" table came a cry: "Don't kill the pregnant lady!"
