Mirror, Mirror...

The gym I joined a few weeks ago is located at this strip mall that has lots of other stores in the same place.

Because it's a pretty busy area, for privacy, the gym has the main front windows covered with a decal that makes the windows into a one way mirror (meaning you can see your reflection from the outside but people on the inside still see outside as if it's just a window).

It is so much fun being on the treadmill and see people walk by and check out themselves on the windows.

Some I'm sure don't even realize this and can't even imagine that there's people right inside looking at them.

Most people walk by while pretty fast and although they don't really stop, they still check out themselves in the mirror, just cause it's there I guess...

Others walk by and once they've realize there's a mirror, immediately as a natural response, they start pushing in their tummy, ladies checking out their make up, if their pants fit right and some might even attempt to squeeze that one zit that is being bothering them all day.... yuck!

Trust me, while you are there sweating your ass off it's quite amusing to see this kind of stuff, even better than watching what's on the TV's; as it's usually some FOX show (NCSI, Criminal Minds or anytime of that matter) playing on one TV and CNN on the other. To me point of view, pretty depressing stuff to watch the news while you exercise...

So instead, I choose to just watch the people go by and see how they react to the "mirror, mirror on the window"....

And since we are in the topic of mirrors... What's up with those picture that people take of themselves in front of the mirror, most of the time people trying to act "all sexy"...  all I have to say is: What's up with that?!?!?  I find them stupid to say the least! LOL

Anyway, talking about pictures now...

Well, it´s a strange thing about mirrors and the purpose of them.. what if we were not ment to have mirrors at all, but get a "mirror reflection" from looking into anothers eyes?
In the fairy tale of Snowwhite, the step mom (the witch) calls the mirror to ask who is the most beautifull in the world. And once she gets the answer that it is no longer her but Snowwhite, she wants her dead, as you know, if you know that fairy tale.
So yes, I also tend to critizise myself when looking in the mirror. But how about conciously smiling and saying "You are just as you were meant to be" to yourself.. I know it works, and the "You" in the mirror gets really happy :-)) - or how about Michael Jacksons "Man in the mirror" song, which also has a great purpose to it. - Happy gym-mirror-entertainment day ;-)

That sounds like absolutely priceless entertainment - live human theatre! That's gotta be fascinating. Did the gym place those windows on purpose?? - I mean most people aren't pleased with the body shape the see! The cartoon is so true :-)

Sunshine, thanks for the comment on my blog; I like "Dirty Dancing" as well, and would imagine you would like the film I mention. It was called a "cult" film, because it is so unique, but have a look yourself! :-)
