I already feel like this blog should be filled with references to elementary school necessities like my first pencil box, the big toy, skipping monkey bars and tetherball.
A couple of days ago, I made my way into the workout room to get some water and saw a new piece of “exercise” equipment hanging on the door. I use the term “exercise” loosely because technically, typing this blog could be considered exercise for my gorilla-like hands but. . . I digress.
Have what it takes?
Anyhow, there were two brightly colored hula hoops hanging on the back of the door, beckoning any unsuspecting workout enthusiast to give them a good ol’ college try (or elementary school, as the case may be). Normally I’m not tempted by anything BUT the water in that workout room. . . and maybe occasionally the floor mat now that I’ve seen how good they can be for R and R. But I will admit that I took a good, long, hard look at those hoops wondering if I still had what it takes. After all, if someone waved a Trapper Keeper in your face would you not stop for a minute to reminisce and pay your respects? I think not.
Although I can say that I could out hula the majority of the girls on the black top when I was young, I now fear the hoop for reasons that I think we can all relate to. I will not go into detail but all I will say is that jumping out of a swing is NOT what it used to be.
Now comes the dare. The first five people that bring one of these hoops into Carlee and David’s office and show us how it’s done will be rewarded.
