Hula hooping with Kari.

Mike and I finally managed to find a Wii Fit. I spent one evening laughing hysterically as he tried skiing and hula hooping, and then on Sunday night it was my turn to be humiliated.

So here’s the thing about hula hooping on the Wii Fit. As we all know, I am excellent at hula hooping. But hula hooping on the Wii is a totally different story. I could not get the hang of it. To prove to Mike that I was not doing it wrong, I got out my actual hula hoop, stood on the balance beam, and used my actual hula hooping skills, which the Wii Fit did not recognize. And so I had to continue flailing about on the balance beam until I figured out what the motion was that they wanted.

Here were some helpful comments that Mike made:

“Why . . . are your arms flailing about? Put them down!”

“Why . . . are you moving like that? Move in a circle!”

“You look ridiculous.”

And also he cackled a lot. (Which is fine. I cackled when he was hula hooping, too.)

I am happy to report to you that I started with a Wii Fit age of 30, which is only one year more than my actual age. Yay!

We are also happy to report that we had blinds installed in our house last night, so the neighbors can no longer point and laugh as we perfect our hula hooping skills. (I still say my hula hooping skills were plenty good enough to begin with. But, you know, whatever.)
