Looking In A Mirror

leave a comment »

Have you ever looked into a mirror? I mean really looked? Maybe stared into a mirror would be a better way of putting it. A mirror isn’t just for fixing your hair, checking your make-up, home medical examination or picking something out of disgusting place. It’s so much more than that.


A mirror is like a worm hole, a portal into another dimension. It allows you to almost transverse through time, as to replicate your very being in the same room at the same time. It’s like cloning yourself at a fraction of the price.


How often do you ever get to look at yourself? Pictures aren’t the same, (or video) as seeing yourself live and in person. It’s a real novel treat to see what other people see for a change, except that it’s on the other side, or backwards, or quite literally a mirror image.


So I ask again, have you ever really looked into a mirror and…


Wanted to cry?

Tried to see inside your soul?

Tried to look into the black abyss of your pupil?

Attempted to spin so fast that you would catch your image unable to keep up with you?

Tried to fake out your image with incredibly fast and intricate hand/arm movements?

Kissed the reflection?

Danced naked?

Closed your eyes and tried to hear your reflection?

Talked to yourself so that you could see how your mouth looks when you speak?

Eaten lunch or dinner so that you could see what you look like eating?

Gotten so close that you couldn’t see anything at all?

Had a staring contest?

Practiced facial expressions?

Practiced pick-up lines?

Practiced a speech or conversation piece?

Practiced what you were going to say before the big “thing”?

Recited an affirmation?


Taken a picture?


Yeah, me neither.


If you hold this blog up to a mirror it says that Paul is dead.


Egg On!
