Dan Meyer, one of the premier sword swallowers in the world, was at Vanderbilt doing a television shoot and I got to bring the kids along to see him do his stuff. They had been so excited about this for the past month, I’m so glad the snowfall we had this weekend didn’t force us to cancel all this.
Here they are patiently waiting for everyone to arrive. Things got delayed by a couple of hours, but they were so good that whole time:

Dr. Mashburn, Dan’s physician, was in the show with me:
Here’s Dan enjoying some pizza before all the fun starts:
Daniel, the host of the show, chills out during a brief period of no filming:
I couldn’t take any pictures during the actual sword swallowing because I had to operate the imaging equipment, but we’ll be able to see it all when the show airs (in about 12 months).
