Elsie was playing with this mirror today and was so fascinated with it. I think she liked how the light was bouncing off it, plus she liked looking at herself.
It reminded me of me when I was younger. I had this really bad habit of always looking at myself in a mirror if I walked by it or when I was talking to people. I never realized I was doing it, it was just such a bad habit. My mom used to point it out to me, and I would really try to stop. But I couldn't!! I think I'm better about it now, but maybe not. My mom had these two long mirrors in her bedroom, and I can picture myself staring into them while I was talking to her. It's not like I was admiring myself...I just couldn't look away. It sounds weird, I know! Then one day, not too long ago, I was walking in a department store with Aaron, Angie, and Jared & Lindsay. Anyway, we were walking and talking, and I was watching myself in this mirror up ahead of me. The only problem was, it didn't register in my mind that I was actually walking straight toward this mirror. The next thing I knew...BAM!!! I walked right into the mirror with my full energy. It hurt so bad. It took me a second to actually process what had happened. Then I was so embarrassed. It didn't help that they were all laughing really loudly at me, plus it made a really loud sound. Yeah, we still talk about that one. At least I don't stare at myself in mirrors so much anymore.
