How would you describe a hula hoop to someone's who's never seen one before?
Some of you may remember this question I asked about a week ago about marriage rituals. To keep in the same vein of using fluther for book research, I’m trying to figure out how to describe a hula hoop. I have some general ideas, but I’d very much like to hear what the collective thinks about this.
If you were talking to someone who had never seen or heard of a hula hoop before, how would you describe it to them?
