I made my very first hoop yesterday and headed, shyly, to the park to test it out. I had hoped the park would be empty. But no such luck. As I stood building up my nerve, a stranger inquired about dog tricks. I answered politely, found some space and gave the hoop a timid spin. My embarrassment subsided and I soon had the park to myself. Then I spotted a woman and a gaggle of children. All clearly watching me from down the street. I turned away, embarrassed, and continued spinning-and-dropping with my back to the eyes. When I turned back, minutes later, the woman was spinning-and-dropping a hoop of her own. In her driveway. With the gaggle of children. How cool is that? p.s. Turns out my home-made hoop is slightly small, slightly light and slightly pointed. But absolutely dandy, for the whopping $5 it cost me.
