This past weekend, when I wasn’t performing stupid human tricks with food, I was practicing some new tricks.
On most weekends I can find my gym-friend taking advantage of the empty studio.
The first time I saw him and his hoops I stared outside the windows until I could no longer prevent myself from being …my brazen self. I walked in, smiled pretty ….and asked if I could try. Hooping is something I’ve wanted to pick up for a while.
Since then I’ve been enjoying popping in on him and taking on the hoop for a few minutes. This past weekend I had my camera with me. Because this (below) is normal.
Anyway….I went in and he let me take his hoop for a spin (his is bigger than the one he wants me to get – 5 feet). I asked him to take a pic and he took a bunch of them in case I had “dork face” — he wanted to give me variety.
I was like “Dork face? That’s my favorite part!”
I’m glad I feel that way because ..lol. I just uploaded them and turns out my face in ALL of them is pretty stellar.
I figured I’d dump them all here. Because ain’t nobody got time to see that. And yet…
The last two tie for most hilarious.
Anyway – I want to get a hoop of my own and spend some time with this. I find it to have an incredibly powerful meditative quality too it ….like a combination of yoga, dance and working with chi flow.
I LOVE to dance.
Maybe one day I will get as good as this?
But I’m probably not going to play with fire. I’ve done enough of that in my life.
