Anyone get "the fear" while hooping with glasses? You hesitate a bit more for fear of knocking your glasses off of your face? Normally I wouldn't care, but it can hurt at times.
I got some contacts a few days ago when I got my eyes checked and I just learned a few new tricks I couldn't do before cause of "the fear" like rolling the hoop across my chest and various other hand passes. Took me long enough! lol!
I lost a contact lense at UK Hoop Gathering event in the summer so had to wear my glasses for the last day and it was the freakiest thing.... I've been wearing contacts for the better part of a decade and literally only wear my glasses for the first and last ten minutes of the day so hooping in them was weird! I wore a pretty tight headband to keep the arms firmly attached behind my head and it was fine (the 4 hour drive home however was not as easy - the glasses were very old and about 1.5 points out.) Still, I felt a bit constricted and VERY gawky; stopped my looking at the floor all the time though, a bad habit of mine, as they'd have fallen off if I did that!
I know what you mean though! I may be a very clumsy hooper though as I've also managed to knock my nose ring out and give myself a fat lip.....
