Week 24 of THE CONTEST brings me to my latest obsession: HOOPING.
Dear Wave Hoop -
As a 41 year-old stay-at-home mom, I thought my window for reinventing myself was long-since closed. Then I discovered your Wave Hoop.
Like many moms of a certain age, most cheap little plastic hoops just don’t pass muster against the proud child-bearing hips of the middle-aged woman. As a former hooper, I was convinced I would never experience hooping joy again.
Your Wave Hoop changed all that. The hoop is substantial enough to maintain its old flight pattern around my hips. I was transported back in time to carefree hooping days of lore. The water inside? GENIUS.
I have shed two inches from my waist.
And I realize now that it is never too late to reinvent oneself.
My name is Marianne. And I hoop.
Andrea might have me beat this week as to date, nada.
It really doesn't matter.
All the happy hooping endorphins keep me content with my current 68 points.
