While I was on the mini-vacation of which I'm not going to write until I have photos, I had a mini-earth-shattering experience. Since it was on the vanity side of my life, it only qualifies under "shallow findings".
We were in a hotel with a long counter in the bathroom, mirrored in front and on the sides, and as one stood brushing one's teeth, one (read me) was able to see one's image multiplied 40 times in either direction.
One (read me again) was dismayed to see 80 images of one from the side---newly, the least flattering of all the possible viewpoints.
I had been aware that I was putting on weight---in the same way you notice that your mail is piling up, or that you really have too many shoes, but I wasn't really aware of the visual impact: what 15 or 20 pounds adds in the way of contours to one's mid-section.
It was a shallow finding, but one that just might get me off the double-double coffee with cinnamon bun at Timmy's and out of the way of the second glass of wine in the evening, and definitely made me think of re-visiting the Exercise Room in the basement of our building. I haven't done anything as radical as deciding on a diet or an exercise plan, but it would probably be a good idea.
My other finding was that I can go very quickly from shocked to soothed. In most cases, that would be good.
