If only…..

I looked at myself. Turned right and left. Sucked in my cheeks, pulled in my breath. Wore black and blue. Wore a knot and then left the hair loose. Nothing helped.

Then I held my handbag on one arm, a scarf in another. Nothing helped.

‘Maybe we should buy another mirror, this one is no good’, the wise one joked. I glared at him, he turned hurriedly away.

Oh my lost figure, if only you were here.

    You are correct: there will be lots of serious and/or sentimental posts in response to this prompt. Your post will be one of the rays of sunshine (I’m optimistically hoping there will be some other humorous posts) among the dark clouds!
