Done With Mirrors

You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change?

A world without mirrors huh? That would be odd to live in, although humans would adjust. But what about driving on the street? Without rearview & side mirrors how are you going to avoid all the accidents that are bound to happen? As it is in some places like India with crowded streets and carefree rules on driving, there are many accidents.

I suppose personal grooming might suffer a bit. Shaving could be a bother, unless you can have someone do it for you. I’ve shaved once without a light on and not looking in the mirror on an early morning when the power was out and I didn’t have a candle handy. It can be done, you just have to be careful and feel your face a lot for stray stubble. I suppose wearing clothes is ok without mirrors but some people *cough, women, cough* might have problems especially with their makeup.

Maybe if we had reflective surfaces that did the job just as well? No? I suppose I could adjust with some difficulty. It will be tough at first but after a while, I guess it will be more easier to manage.
