No he didn't run away. Well he almost did.
Away from the approaching performers determined to have him stand up and hold a flaming stick in the middle of a Quebec square. But he knew the kids would love it. And that I would love taking pictures.
He was brought up with several other men to hold up flaming torches.
So we thought he was done with his part of the performance as they moved on to juggling knives.
But apparently they were not done with him. The gentleman escorted Amazing Guy back up to the center for a solo visit (no other audience members) and requested he display his muscles.
Only to be used as a hat rack.
To a woman on stilts.
I'm glad Amazing Guy wasn't part of the last act. Since it involved a narrow flaming circle of knives balanced on the woman.
And the gentleman jumped right through.
The first week home the kids were playing with silverware. Good thing they don't know where the matches are kept.
