Mirror Mirror on the wall

Every time I stay at a hotel they have one of those cool lighted mirror that swings from the walls and illuminates and magnifies my pores. I admit its kind of scary to your skin magnified x10 but it's very helpful when putting on makeup. Every time I use one in the hotels I wish I had one. I didn't have to have a fancy one that juts from the wall and swings up or down. No, I just needed a plan simple one that sat on a stand and illuminated all of my flaws. While they are not in short supply and can be found mostly at any store I have never actually ventured to buy one. Well on Monday I found one sitting on a table and as I got closer to it I realized there was a man next to it. Was it his? Of course it was but he told me if he changed his mind he would let me know. Then he started to chit chat with me. Man: How old is your son. Me: I want that lighted mirror. Man: What grade is he in? Me: I'm sorry what? Did you say lighted mirror? Okay that is not really how the conversation went. I actually answered his questions with the correct responses. Somehow this man who held my precious mirror got me to get him a buggy. To be truthful he didn't ask me to get one, he kind of told me. I remember it going somewhat like "Get me a buggy from up front." I looked near him for crutches and I saw none. I realized he was sitting down, maybe I missed the wheelchair. No, it was a normal chair. What I did notice is that he accumulated a lot of stuff on the table next to the mirror and he didn't what to leave his stuff to be stolen by anyone else. This is why he summoned me to get his shopping cart. I got the cart and I gave it to him. Did I get the lighted mirror for my troubles? Nope all I got was a thank you. But it was I who should have thanked him for finding the cheap subpar mirror first. The next day I found  Conair lighted mirror that has different settings so you can see how your makeup will look in office, day, evening, and home. It was $9.99 at a different Goodwill and it's mine all mine.


  1. Don't you love when things work out like that? That was nice of you to get that man a cart, I think I would have told him to get his own cart and then stolen his mirror when turned his back. Kidding! (sort of)

    1. lol. I wanted to tell him to get his own cart. Karma shined on me the next day because i got him one.
