Post 1529. Wednesday May 10
I was fixing my new mirror to the wall. A lovely mirror. It made me look more handsome than ever.
Screw one, two, three - then screw four jammed. One very angry face stared back at me. Push, twist. The screwdriver slipped banging into the glass right in the middle of my nose. I leapt backwards forgetting it was just my reflection. My beautiful mirror, smashed to smithereens.
Breaking a mirror’s bad luck. That was bad luck enough, surely nothing worse could happen.
I’d buy another one.
I trudged to my car. Guess what – a side mirror was smashed.
I slouched back indoors, climbed the stairs and crawled into bed.
Thanks Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers and for your photograph.
Sounds like going back to bed is a wise choice. ~grin~ Happy Writing!ReplyDelete
Two broken mirrors - not good. Bed it is!Delete
Some days it's the only answer. Nice work.ReplyDelete
I quite agree Iain!Delete
Not a very good day, isn't it. Sleep is the only antidote to this. Good one.ReplyDelete
Absolutely neel! Cheers.Delete
Mindsets, perspectives and superstitions :)ReplyDelete
If in doubt, go with superstition. Better safe in bed than breaking any more mirrors!Delete
Yep... go back to bed and start over. Sometimes that is best!ReplyDelete
I think you are spot on Dale!Delete
Uh oh, do these things come in threes? Going back to bed might not be enough.ReplyDelete
That's exactly what I thought - 2 mirrors are enough for one day!Delete
Some days that's the only way... but it's said that a broken mirror gives seven years of bad luck so that would give you bedsores (bad luck)ReplyDelete
2 mirrors so that's 14 years in bed! Ouch! Cheers.Delete
Bigger Girl once damaged the side mirror on Sweetie's car as well as her own rear lights. It was a two for one, just like this!ReplyDelete
Clumsy girl. Double trouble!Delete
Keith, I'd go back to bed too. Let someone else be the almighty, all-conquering hero.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a olan Rowena!Thanks.Delete
Looks like his whole day went bad. Simply great!ReplyDelete
Not one of his better ones! Glad you liked it.Delete
As we say 'S--- happens'. I've had those days, too. Just sleep on it.ReplyDelete
Haha! It certainly does! Cheers Denise.Delete
Not a good day for mirrors, I guess. I loved the writing about the reflections.ReplyDelete
Certainly not! Thank you so much YuhuDelete
Hi Keith - hate those days ... on top of that one scowls ... probably bed was the best place - but I guess it'd have been better to push the scowl away and grin and make a joke of the two of them ... a third to turn up ... but better to get it over with! Cheers - have a good weekend ... looks warmer - HilaryReplyDelete
It certainly is a bit warmer just in time for my Mother's 90th party in Eastbourne Sunday! Cheers HilaryDelete
Very well done, Keith. I love the way the same photo throws up so many different stories. :)ReplyDelete

Bed sounds like a good idea. Great story.ReplyDelete
I quite agree! CheersDelete
