Mirror, mirror on the car…

You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change?

I would be terrified. Driving would be a nightmare without car mirrors. No way to check the others cars behind you or at your side. No way to avoid crashes. Everyday life would be a mess by my fear to go out from my home in the middle of such a chaotic situation on the streets and roads. Even as a pedestrian I would be afraid to walk amid all these cars and buses going back and forth without mirrors.

Mirror mirror on the wall… I’ll figure out how to live without you. A window can do the trick. Maybe I’ll prefer it. You lately are telling me I’m aging fast and I prefer to look at me through a less resolution device.

But mirrors mirrors on the car… I need you working for my safety and the safety of others around me.


The Mirror Crack’d.
