I originally wanted to write H is for Hope, but I think hula hoops are a little more light hearted, don't you?
As little girls, my sister and I received Big M scented hula hoops one year. For those non-Aussies, a Big M is a brand of flavoured milk.
True to our tastes, mine was 'chocolate' and as you can well imagine, it was brown in colour and smelled like chocolate milk.
My sister's was 'strawberry' - pink in colour and scented with, well... strawberries!
Though they were to provide hours of fun and exercise, one really must ponder, what was the purpose of the scent in the scented hula hoop?
When attempting a Google search for an image of a Big M scented hula hoop I came across many stories that started with "My sister and I......" but unfortunately, no photo that would do the 80's essential item any justice.
Who else remembers having one of these gems? Anyone, have a banana one?
- I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.
