MY DAUGHTER AND I were enthralled by a girl doing hula hoop tricks at Granville Island in Vancouver yesterday.
She spun the orb around her neck as if it were a large necklace.
Without pause ...
she spun ...
and twirled ...
and told some jokes.
She delighted the crowd with her enthusiasm and charm.
People applauded her dexterity and wit.
The importance of the hula hoop that aided her performance should not be overlooked. Invented in the late 1950's, the toy helps exercise the limbs and is not just for kids. The hula hoop name starting with the letter "H" inspired me to give ABC Wednesday a spin this week with this post.
