The Dangers of Hooping

Hooping might seem like all fun and games…until someone loses their dignity.

One time at a festival I chest and shoulder hooped for so long in the dust that the grip tape on my hoop completely shredded my armpits. I got the craziest, most painful infection. I couldn’t put my arms down.

I had to go to the doctor. I never go to the doctor so it was serious.

Walking into his office with my arms above my head, armpits on fire, the first thing he said to me was, “Are you aware you are covered in glitter?” 😬 I then had to explain that I hooped my armpits off.

I got some strange looks from that Doc.
