[muse] Jose and the hula hoop

The first time we tried to get Jose to just walk through a hula hoop, he was deathly afraid. We held out his favorite treat on the other side, and he would reach and reach for it with his neck, but his little feet stubbornly planted on the edge of the hoop.

Finally we held his foot up and gently nudged him through the hoop to get his treat. Suddenly he realized that the hoop wasn't going to eat him alive -- Jumping through hoop wasn't so hard after that!

What are things on my to-do and i-really-should list that are hula hoops -- really hard to get through the first time, because I don't know how easy it really is?
