Making Faces


The washroom was empty and dimly lit.  “Be a minute”, she’d told her friends.

“Careful, these highway washrooms are haunted,” they’d ribbed her. Ha! Yeah,right.

She now made faces in the mirror.

She grinned.

Frowned.

Grinned.

She applied lipstick.

She made faces again.

Except…this time round, her reflection was doing the exact opposite expression.

Sometimes even my mirror acts like this. Or maybe I'm just too sleepy in the mornings :)
