"I had a Driveway Moment when I got home from work last night. I was listening to All Things Considered and specifically to the story about String Cheese [Incident] and hula hooping. As I pulled up to my house, the reporter was just arriving at the pre-Incident party and I sat in my car listening to the great story about learning to hoop. I love that NPR takes the time to bring us great stories like this one. As soon as the story ended I went to my backyard and grabbed my hoop."
