Hula hoops are by far one of the most fun ways of staying shape. However, learning how to use one is one of the most stressful afternoons anyone can ever spend.
This doesn’t look tough at all, you think to yourself.
This is a lot harder than it looks! Maybe I should learn how to bake an upside down cake instead!
Because you have to keep bending over to pick up the hula hoop which inevitably keeps falling to the floor.
Plus, the rhythm of the music might help you to achieve the rhythm needed to keep balancing that hoop on your hips.
It is a device created by Satan himself!
S**t s**t s**t!
Please God, I promise to be nicer to that strange boy at school if you will just grant me the power of mastering the hula hoop.
You whoop with joy not knowing that more hardship lies along the way.
You wonder why you hadn’t thought of looking up a video before you started trying to learn how to hula hoop.
How in the world is that woman so good at using that hoop! How is she doing that and making it look so effortless! You despair more than ever.
Just so you can say you gave it your best shot.
You almost want to scream and shout in joy but are too terrified of dropping the hoop again.
You feel smug and you damn well deserve to.
I mean, what’s the point if you can’t rub someone else’s nose in your new found power.
Standing in front of the TV and watching your favorite show and exercising at the same time. Does it really get better than that?
