My first card for the 25 something trade has arrived at its new home in Canada. I am doing childhood memories. The first one was hula hoops.
I received my first hula hoop when I was in about 4th grade. We were in Oklahoma visiting my grandfather for the last time and he had grandma give us each $5. When we got home, we bought hula hoops with our money. They were so much fun and we soon had mastered the technique.
I have tried it since I have gotten older and thicker. Doesn't work any more. Too much hip and not enough action. And I felt like a dunce... awkward and not a pretty sight.
