Mirror Mirror on the Wall...
I have one particular trait that is found- depending on who you ask, aggravating, egotistical, and/or hilarious.
I always find myself staring at... well.. myself. I think a majority of the population looks at themselves predominantly in a mirror. I assume the thing that takes this "habit" of mine to the next level is that a mirror is just ONE very small tool used for gazing into my own eyes. Dirty car windows, shiny buildings, someone Else's glasses, margarita glasses, reflection in a picture frame, black computer screen.. ooh the possibilities are truly endless. No matter where I am .. I will find myself.
In Junior High, there was a particular moment that I will never ever live down. I have always been "too social", on almost every report card I was marked down for "excessive talking". I  came out of the womb talking to anyone who would listen.. Or anyone who wasn't listening but didn't seem too annoyed. I am not sure if it was the same for anyone else but at my Jr. high you got your seat moved for talking. Originally I was sitting by my friend - bad idea - I got moved. Then I made friends with my new neighbor - I got moved. I was put in the back my someone I had nothing on common with - I made friends - I got moved.  By now, my teacher had called my parents and told them that If I had to be moved one more time, It would result in detention. Now I am sitting in the far back corner, next to a wall and next to really no one. Did I talk to anyone? No.. Did I get moved? Yes.
Teacher: "Hello Shelly (my mom).. Unfortunately Misty had to have her seat moved again.
Mom: "What?! Why?? Was she still talking to her neighbor? We had a long talk with her about this?
Teacher: "No, She was staring at herself through out the entire class in the shiny metal pencil sharpener, and I had to move her away from it."
Yeah.. Some things never change!
Happy Turkey Day Everyone

lol I don't check out myself too often. I guess if I'm shopping I'll look in store windows sometimes. Some of my friends have to stare in a full-length mirror for like 10 mins. before we go out and it gets annoying lol
