I don’t have one, but I did as a kid. I remember really wanting a hula hoop because I thought they were so cool but I was never successful at maintaining the spin on my waist. It ended up being a large wheel that I would use for my backyard ‘physics’ experiments.
The person who invented the hula hoop concept must have been some kind of scientist or physics person. Perhaps not professionally, but there was obviously a lot of intellect behind it all.
Recently a good friend of mine used the analogy of a hula hoop to a ‘circle’ of friends. There are some people one lets in, and others not. They stay on the ‘outside’ of the hoop because they are not allowed ‘in’. This decision is not often taken lightly, it all depends on truth and trust of both parties.
Character Counts! There is nothing wrong with being selective of who is allowed into one’s hula hoop of friends.
