Walking across the Weeks Footbridge on Tuesday night, I witnessed a man (or a woman with heavy overcoat & shoulder pads, it was dark) setting up a tripod on the edge of the frozen Charles River. This person then proceeded to film himself standing on the banks of the river while spinning a hula hoop. He actually had two hula hoops and switched back and forth between the two. The second one was “glow-in-the-dark” and gave a nice phosphorescent radiance to the snow.
It’s one of those moments that I wish I remembered to bring a camera with me everywhere or go. Better yet, it would be a good moment to overcome my shyness and ask this person what he was doing. I do hope he was trying to entertain passersby, because I’d rather laugh with him than at him. Maybe the video he made is on the internet already?
