Hey, all. A few of us beginners were saying how we didn't really feel like like hoopers yet. I started being aware of how into it I really was and decided to write a Signs That You Are a Hooper list for beginners to help us see that we are hoopers and also because I think the list could be hilarious. I want to open it up to suggestions from the community to see what kind of list we can come up with.
So far I have:
You know you are a hooper when:
1. You spend five minutes packing clothes and personal items for a weekend trip and 45 minutes deciding which hoops and hoop-making supplies to take.
2. You own more than five hoops.
3. You have so much hoop tape that your room looks like a rainbow threw up in it.
4. Your spinning class has nothing to do with bikes.
Me too! That was a huge decision point. I got a Honda Fit because it accommodates hoops so well. When I made it to a Hoop Path workshop in Chicago, two other people had Fits for the exact same reasons. :-)
OMFG! I DID do this too! I was looking at a smart car, but then I got really sad knowing I couldn't have my hula hoops... so I was thinking of making them all into travelling hula hoops instead... Nope, got a 1989 Marcadies instead. Lots of room now!
