Posted:Recently I posted an ad on Craig's List offering private fire lessons (poi, staff, double staff, eating, or breathing). I got a few responses so far but the one I got today kind of surprised me.

I got a mail from someone in another country who said that their son will be coming to the states for 2 months and wants fire lessons while hes here. They asked my prices per hour for poi and I told them. They replied back saying that they essentially wanted $1000 worth over the course of a month.


$1000 for poi lessons? Holy crap! I think if I ever told my parents I wanted $1000 worth of lessons doing AYTHING they'd laugh in my face, not to mention playing with fire.

Oh man... Guess Im gonna have to really teach this kid something smile

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Wish I could teach stuff.

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."
