Man, I am the worst hula hooper ever! The last time I saw anyone do it was when I went to the new Hooters an hour from here... I am all about new experiences! My boyfriend had fun watching the hola hoop... I kept thinking how terrible at it she was. (You know, I could get passed the marketing ideas behind Hooters if the food was half-decent, but the food was totally not worth it!)
