I woke up one Sunday morning only to find out that all the mirrors inside the house have been gone away forever. I can remember that the wind was a bit chilly even though the sky was crystal blue and the sun was shining bright; it is always a reminder that no matter how good the summer may have seemed to be, it must always make room for autumn and for winter.
I did not even notice that there used to be a mirror in the bathroom. I thought that it was just a sort of coincidence that it was there, until all my housemates have pointed that they could not even take a look at themselves.
I never considered a mirror to be useful; I thought of it as a useless distraction that breaks, and as far as I can remember, there’s this superstition that a person who breaks a mirror is entitled to bad luck for seven years. I would not want to have any of that, to be honest.
But then, I realized, oh sh*t, we don’t have any mirrors any more. What should we do?
My perspectives in life would never change (to tthe point that it rides a fine line between consistency and narrow-mindedness). I will always be the same person (or will try to be as similar or as equal to the persona that I have/had in the past, minus the bad and the unnecessary elements), and well, I am able to brush my teeth, wash my face, and check my tooth without using a damn mirror anyway, so nothing much will change…
As one’s POV about the self is important (what is perception?) I do not percieve myself as anything other than a plebian or a simple person, even though events and attitudes prove otherwise. I will still follow this blind rule, no matter how much blind it seems to me!
Ta-daa! I guess it’s time for me to go out, grab some chips, drink some iced tea, and get some much-needed fresh air for me and my body!
This is the challenge for today. It mostly involves the disappearance of mirrors. Whew!
Hope you enjoyed reading this post!
