Marissa's Special Talent

I have never been able to hula hoop. Even when I was a kid, I couldn't hula hoop, and now, as an adult, the only way I can hula hoop is by putting the hula hoop around my neck. Weird, I know, but that's all I can do.

Remember this toy?

You would put this boy around one ankle, swing it around and hop over it. It was the closest I could come to hula hooping, and I would skip over this yellow, plastic spinning thing up and down the sidewalk.

So I'm not sure where Marissa gets this talent. But here she is, showing off her mad hula hooping skills.

Ignore the distraction in the background, that's just me trying to keep Lindsey from jumping into the video...again.


  1. that's amazing! I've never been good at hula hooping either. I think long torsos make it easier...or at least that was what a tall long torso expert hula hooper told me.

  2. Awesome! I haven't been good at hoola hooping either but I bet she can use that at the next talent show at school.
