MIND, YOUR REFLECTION

 A pop-up just popped up on my screen
Microsoft Security Essentials has a new version of ---
You should upgrade now to protect your computer.
I like how this happens automatically
Without me having to think about it.
And that got me to thinking…
Wouldn’t it be great if your body could do the same?
A thought would POP inside your mind…
Warning:
You are low on calcium, drink more milk or take a supplement.
You need more sleep. Turn computer off now and go to bed.
You brain is running out of memory. Take come CoQ 10.
You need more vitamin D. Get your lazy butt outside.
And speaking of your butt…
It’s getting flabby and wide…
Exactly how wide do you want it to get before…
OK, on second thought…
This was a silly idea…
I don’t need a pop-up to tell me how bad I look…
That’s what husbands do. And that’s why I got rid of mine.
(Kidding! Just kidding! There were other weighty issues involved)
Unfortunately, I’m still made to feel bad everyday…
Because when I get dressed…
I’m always greeted with, “Good morning, fatty.”
By my mirror!
And you can’t turn off, take a pill or get rid of…
Your own reflection.
Do you have any bad mirrors? 
Or other?

Always Em-Musing

Nope and nope.

I ignored my nasty mirror so long that it says "hello Gorgeous!"

Every morning it sees me.

I know that it's all flattery, but at leat it makes me feel perky.

:-P

Me and fluorescent lights. It doesn't matter how good the mirror is...

I have 6 mirrors in my house and only look into the one that makes me look skinny and gorgeous. It's antique and has the marbeled lines running through it, the whatever-it-is that makes the reflection part is faded -- so when I look into it, it can't see my grey hair or fat arse. You need to get to an antique store (or goodwill or yard sale). An antique mirror might save your life.

Yes! I have a wicked evil mirror in the front hall, unfortunately we call it the mirror of truth.

No! Bad mirror! Get rid of it!

I have a friend who has a full-length mirror with "Damn, you're gorgeous!" stenciled across the top. And it really does improve your self-esteem!

But, I know what you mean. I don't like looking in mirrors, either. I see all kinds of things I don't want to see! (like wrinkles)

Forget Koontz and forget his book “What the Night Knows” (a ghost vengeance story, been there, done that), instead read a book that’s been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by E.A. Blayre III.
