So you know you are in trouble when you have to cancel an outside dare because of wind. Hmmmm this might not have been the best idea that Photographer JJ and I have ever come up with.
The nice people down at Dead Man's Farm agreed to have us out in their off season. It was about to get hot!
Jeff was nice enough to help us get ready, and he told me to drink milk... what? Here's a hint: when you are about to eat fire you do what the man tells you to do. Enough said.
So we stopped on our way down to Lenior City and grabbed some chocolate and regular milk.
Yeah, so after I downed that, it was time to watch the folks who do it professionally have fun. Although I think we almost melted the Go Pro. Whoopsie.
Then we decided to head into a less windy area for the fire eating. They told me how to do it. Yet time after time I kept freaking out and asking Photographer JJ if I was close. He said, "No".. how about now?, "no" so needless to say a couple minutes later I finally ate it..but I did not make it go out because I clamped my teeth around it. Oye Veh. Anywhoo I think I was entertainment for the others. They showed me how easy... easy... it was to do. Please don't be trying to do this at home or with a buddy. These guys are professionals and there were about five different ways to put out something if there was a fire.
So let's assume it's safe to say that I will not be getting a part-time job at the haunted attraction come fall.
Then we moved back outside so that we could "breathe" fire. Once again this was not the best idea... My apologies to Jeff because I pretty much spit fluid all over the poor man on my first try. Downwind.. yes, I believe he was.
Jeff was pretty patient and the other folks standing there were just trying not to laugh. Nice try guys... Don't be fooled, Photographer JJ got right in there when we were done filming.
So as I said before, don't think this is a good idea. Don't do it unless you are with professionals. I can not stress this enough. Yes it's cool, but it is VERY dangerous. Okay, soapbox off.
Thanks so much to everyone out at Dead man's Farm for having us out and making JJ and I feel pretty hot.
