So I tell my husband about my sweeping desire to hula hoop or as I refer to it as I want to "hoop it up".
He says, well I bet the grandkids have one you could use.
No, no I explain. The experts at the Hula Hoop All-Stars have shown me the light... and are showing me the way.
Husband: How much will it cost?
Me: Hardly anything... I can make my own. The experts at HHAS have provided links to YouTube and there are even Hoop groups.
Husband: silence... but from the look he gives, I know he is thinking, "Seriously????"
Husband: well can you try the kids' to see if you'll like it?
Me: Well actually no. HHAS says my failure to hoop in the past is because of size... hoop size (I quickly add so he doesn't think it is just MY size).
Luckily a woman from work has one. She told me she even won a hula hoop contest when she was younger and still had a waist. I told her a waist doesn't matter, that this will help her get one back (right?). But she isn't buying it. She is however, going to let me use hers or at least check it out to see if it would work for me.
So that's what I will do for now.
