I Thought I could Hula Hoop
Thursday, July 01, 2010
Last year (possibly in the Summer) I purchased a hula hoop to use with my teammates, but we never got around to using them. I finally took it out of the car and hung it from the fence thinking I might finally use it, but still didn't. Well, a few weeks ago a team member suggested trying them and didn't let us off the hook since she had several in her trunk to share with those of us who "let their's fade in the sun".
We tried out the hula hoops and some were better than others. We had a good time trying to recall our youth, even laughing at the 2 young visitors who didn't prove any better at hula hooping. Props to my son for quickly learning how to hula hoop and showing off his skills.
Lately I've been busy and haven't been able to join the team at the workouts but I have done some things on my own. One of my activities has been trying to use my hula hoop for a few minutes (almost) daily. I thought I was starting to get the hang of it again, until I caught an act on America's Got Talent where a lady hula hooped using not 1 or 2 but several. She even managed to hula hoop around her foot while holding that leg in the air. That is Talent!
I thought I could Hula Hoop...in my youth, but definitely not like the lady on America's Got Talent. Guess I'll keep practicing.
