Here is news item from today’s news papers:
Women check their appearance 8 times a day
Women never change. They check their appearance in the mirror eight times a day — using shop windows, car wing mirrors and even other people’s sunglasses, says a new study. In the study, based on a survey inBritain, one in 10 woman have admitted that they cannot walk past a car without bending to check their hair and make-up.
And, one in three women believe they look their best in their own bathroom mirror while one in 20 said they looked their worst in the mirror in the loo at work, according to the poll of 2,000 women by ‘Simple’ skincare.
What’s more interesting is that four in 10 even have favorite mirrors they feel they look better in than others, the ‘Daily Express’ reported. Dr Christine Bundy ofManchesterUniversity said: “Many women have busy lives where they are on the go and want to look their best. “So giving themselves a glimpse when they get the chance is natural. It’s important to check your appearance to boost confidence.
My comments:
1.Let a woman look in a mirror as many times as she feels like, if it boosts her confidence. What is 8 times? Let her see herself maybe 18 times.
2.Don’t such magazines or survey conducting agencies have more better things to do ? I wonder.
3. BTW, why does a woman want to look beautiful after all ? Its because they want to impress us men ! Who doesn’t want to be impressed, pray do tell me ?
4. I recall a fairy tale called SNOW WHITE read in my school days, wherein a character keeps asking a magic mirror :”Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all ?” The mirror always replies “You, my queen, are fairest of all.” Read the entire story to know more…
5.A Poetry website : www.poemhunter.com , has several poems on the subject of Mirror. Here is a sample:
Mirror, Mirror, Bloody Fibber
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Can’t you show me tall and slim?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Must I look so bloody grim?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
You’re distorting my poor waist!
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
And why the heck am I defaced?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Why have I a double chin?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
And what’s the stupid, goofy grin?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Pointless asking ‘Who’s the fairest?
More bloody likely, ‘Who’s the queerest?
Now look, I paid a big bucks for thee,
So why can’t you be nice to me?
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Me, you say? Ah, that’s better
Mirror, mirror, bloody fibber!

I believe in: “Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it.”
So read such reports and keep smiling.
