I Am Gunna Do Something Crazy-Fun…


I have just committed to WALKING ON FIRE next Thursday.


I think the first time I saw someone walk barefoot on hot coals was on one of those early-eighties TV shows, That’s Incredible! or maybe Real People. It was probably some “Indian Swami” who laid on a bed of nails for his next trick. I always wanted to know how walking on fire was done – and in less than a week, I’m going to find out!

I am inordinately excited about doing this. Been 43 years on this rock without someone saying, ‘Hey, want to firewalk with me?’ You bet your bippy I jumped at the chance.

My awesome Canadian friend is the one who asked, and so far I am the only taker. Would you walk on fire, if given the chance?

  1. I think you misspelled “I’m going to die in a fireball next Thursday.” ๐Ÿ˜‰ Honestly, I’m guessing it’ll be a similar adrenaline rush to what I get with a new tattoo. Please make sure that a responsible adult photo-documents it. For posterity and all that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Ha! Maybe, it has been too long since I got a new tat! This seems different though – more like learning how to be one of those awesomely amazing women who dance with fireballs. I’m not that graceful but shit, I have feet!

        • Bosh. I will totally feel amazing when I do this, especially after so many blank looks and ‘what?’s given to me at work! One woman I work with was interested but can’t go (I have taken the entire day off). Everyone else said I should ask for donations for charity!

          So… would you, or wouldn’t you?
