There Are Both Good And Bad Mirrors … Really

My mother’s bathroom had a great mirror; made me and the six other women in the family look ten pounds thinner. I hadn’t known it worked for others until I mentioned it to my nieces. Before that, I had wishfully thought I was a little slimmer. We still laugh about that mirror. Some movie theaters have bad mirrors, they make one look ten pounds heavier and if there’s bad lighting … well … ask an actor what lighting will do for one’s looks.

People are like mirrors too. Some are good mirrors, others are not. Sometimes those who are bad mirrors are favorites of ours. What to do? Maybe it’s the lighting. Try shining a little brighter when around those bad mirror acquaintances. As for movie theatre mirrors? Don’t look?
