Life Without Mirrors

Daily Prompt: The Mirror Crack’d
You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change?

This is the second time this week the WordPress grid won’t work for me. It won’t show my blog.

It is interesting that today there is a daily prompt about a mirror. Yesterday my daughter bought a mirror for my room here. I have hung it over the closet door (inside).

I have lived this past year without a mirror in my room (there is a wall size mirror in the bathroom). It wasn’t like I was without a mirror. There has been a time in my life, when we were without mirrors for a year.

We had left our furniture in storage, on one posting to a far off place. The home we got was an old one. There were no mirrors in the bathrooms. With two toddlers in tow, I never thought of a mirror. I didn’t have time to look in a mirror.

One thing I am used to now is looking into a mirror to check my teeth after meals. If mirrors went missing, I would be smiling not knowing about the food stuck to my teeth. With all the flossing I do, this calamity happens to me quite regularly.

When I buy some new clothes I check in a mirror to see whether they suit me. Without mirrors I won’t know.

 

Contemplating life without mirrors? I won’t even think of it.
