So I have a funny story for you.

But I must preface this story by telling you this: When I hap by a reflection of myself in the mirror, I often make a face at myself. 

I realize this might sound strange to some of you and it doesn't really help my case that this is a story about something that happened to me, when tell you such a thing, as one who is already out there making faces at oneself in the mirror is kind of asking for it, but I digress.

So, I was going to my car in a parking lot and I caught a glimpse of myself in the reflection from the window of the car beside mine.  And so I stuck my tongue out at myself.  And laughed.  And then suddenly the window came down and there was a MAN  in there. I hadn't seen him! 
"Hey!" He said. He said it in a good-natured, amused way.
"Oh!" I said. "I didn't see you! I was sticking my tongue out at myself!"
"Oh." he said, slightly confused.
"Okay!" I said "Well, bye!"
And I got in my car and drove away.

How embarrassing!

And then as I thought about telling the story to the next person I saw, entering my work building, I realized that having to preface the story with When I catch my reflection in a mirror or window, I like to make faces at myself sort of gives me away right there. 

But whatever.


You should know that I googled "making faces at yourself in a mirror" trying to find a good illustration for this blog post, and turns out there are three Facebook pages for such an interest so I am not alone!
