\o/ on fuego

Your tongue can be on fire for longer than you’d think before you’re required to do anything about it.

It’s day two, and Patricia’s really a fantastic instructor. She had warned us against wearing polyester (for fashion reasons, but also the fire just makes a sticky mess out of it) and we had a quick review of which fire extinguisher is okay to use on people (that’s the CO2, with the cone-shaped nozzle.)

Then she looked at us and one of the students grinned and said “Let’s get lit!”

A really fun weekend class for sure, highly recommended.

Why is my muse such a natural at this? Not sure, but I like it.

  1. How do I book this act for my next party? We’ll provide the camping fuel but it’ll be byot – that’s bring your own torch not tart. 😉

  2. My kids want to know if your tongue is actually on fire! Natsuko says she wants to try it.

    • Yep, it is. We learned to use hands and skin, tongue, or just trap burning vapor in our mouth without attaching it to anything in particular. That’s a fun one. Training is required for sure, and the minimum age is 18, so it’ll make a good graduation present.

  3. You and your muse continue to show how amazing you are. And quite crazy. But amazing. Going to show off your skills at the next Burning Man?

    • No way, we’d need to notch it up for BrMan. There’s a lot of serious fire talent there. We could barely serve these as hors d’oeuvres. 😮
