My fire sword. Just like it
looks, it is very dangerous.
The flame is huge and hot.
Very hot.

Don't tell any one but I am
actually afraid of fire. I still
can't light anything with the
small matches. I need the
long, thick kitchen matches,
with which I feel safe.
Interestingly I have no
problem putting flaming
trays or swords on my head,
and swing lit fans around.
Isn't that weird?
After my New Year's Eve performance in
a funny party hat. No, I didn't dance in it,
but maybe I should have? It matched the
costume and the occasion.
I learned how to dance the Zembekiko, which is a lot of fun,
but it's not easy.

After the flaming sword
came the fire fans. I had
so much fun with fire, I
had to have more of it.
As you can see it's much
more dangerous, so I
need to wear pants with it.
