I never could hulahoop correctly. Always slides right down to hit the ground, leaving me a bit disappointed.
So, I found another use for my hulahoop. I'd sit inside it and pretend it was a forcefield and no one could touch me.
I still can't do it. :(
To me, this is when I again, am amazed at my children! Both of my children, picked up a hula-hoop and after just a few tries - voila' they had mastered the art of the hula hoop.
Me, 43 years old and years of trying - still can't get the dang thing to go around my waist...
