Perfection Reflection

When you crawl out of bed and greet yourself in the bathroom mirror; or get ready to go out and try to look skinnier and prettier than you feel;  or catch a glimpse of yourself in the grocery store's window front and wonder who the raggedy-haired scrounge in front of you is...do you smile? Cringe? Avoid yourself? 


I find myself watching black and white golly-gee-goodness sitcoms and see droves of people coiffed, clean, and respectable.  I audibly suggest people should take more pride in their appearance, all the while being surprised at my own when I venture to the store in my garden jeans and oily braids.


But here's a lesson we got this weekend from the sweet innocence of a baby (not quite a toddler).  The Mister turned the viewer to Giddy, so he caught his own reflection...and registered delight!





How does your reflection register with yourself?

Amber, besides being a delightful video clip, the questions you pose are very thought-provoking and cause a person to think...really good post.

We watched it 4 times and laughed harder with each time. Three letters . . . AFV . . . I can see the future winner of the $100,000 right there. I'm serious - they love clips like that as did we!
