Yes, I'm still obsessed with mirrors. Call it vanity, a midlife crisis or just plain stupid. Shh. Don't say it. Anyway, you know how some mirrors are skinny mirrors? They make you look thinner than you are? Apparently my husband, Mr. I-don't-need-to-do-anything-to-look-great, has never been aware of the phenomenon.
Me: Was that mirror in our bathroom at the lodge a skinny mirror?
Kevin: What are you talking about, skinny mirror?
Me: You know, some places have mirrors that make you look skinny, like in dressing rooms. You look skinny when you try on the clothes so you buy them, but when you get home they don't look quite the same.
Kevin: There is no such thing. You are totally making that up.
Me: No, really, there is. Ask any woman. They'll agree.
Kevin: How could anyone make a skinny mirror?
Me: I don't know, but there's those weird mirrors in fun houses. It's possible. A skinny mirror is just a toned down version. A sneaky one.
Kevin: You are so full of it.
Me: No, I'm not. You ask any woman.
So I'm asking. Am I right, girls? You've encountered skinny mirrors, haven't you? Help me make my point! Show my husband I know what I'm talking about. Leave a comment so we can set my skeptic straight.
