Let's Discuss: Mirrors

So on Twitter last week I saw this video that was basically the opening credits to a show I used to watch and a kid and omg the nostalgia! Credit for the video clip and tweet goes to @90sManiax

This show has that 90s flair to it, so naturally when seeing it again, you would think it's so corny! Well in 20 years today's shows will be corny too, just saying! And with the nostalgia feels came other memories and feels, one that I admit is kinda dorky...

My Real Obsession with Mirrors

As a kid I remember having an obsession with looking in the mirror. Everyone thought it was because I liked to look at myself. Well, they are wrong. I wasn't obsessed with my reflection. I was really trying to find a way to go inside my mirror and go off to Wonderland! As the opening song will show you, Alice simply just walked on through. So I thought if I tried hard enough I would be able to do that too!

There was also an episode of Rugrats that was called "Mirrorland." While it wasn't a "Alice in Wonderland" spin, it was more about entering a world where everything is backwards. So my childlike mind naturally thought that it was further proof that there was a WORLD behind that mirror. If only I could've figured out how to get the door to truly open! Lol.

I was always a bit of dreamer, always believing in things that most kids eventually gave up on. Granted nowadays I'd be more scared of mirrors expecting some ghost to crawl out of it and either scare me to death or actively try to kill me, but I can only hope then that Dean and Sam jump out of the TV to rescue me too.

Though, I do know none of that is actually possible, but I figure if I'm going to stretch that daydream, I better stretch it right! Lol.

Did anyone else by chance have a Wonderland obsession with mirrors? Or any other bizarre obsession as a kid that you look back on now and just laugh?

  1. Oh, I definitely felt this way about mirrors. I even wrote a short story in college that's narrated by a girl talking to her "other" self in the mirror (one of the best stories I wrote for that class). I never watched that show in the 90's (you're a lot younger than me. LOL!), but I certainly saw mirrors as magical!
