Carnival entertainment in my home.
Written on April 25, 2006 by Kevin.
We have all seen those mirrors they have at the fun houses at carnivals and state fairs. They do all types of modifications to your body including stretching and shrinking. Kids seem to get a lot of enjoyment out of this.
Lately, I have been sitting down with Rylan in front of his baby proof mirror and I had a vision. I can charge kids to come over to the house and look at themselves in the baby mirror and get the same effect as if they were at the carnival. The baby mirror is in fact not a real mirror at all. Heck I don't even know what it is but I know that it skews the picture in nearly the same manner.
When Rylan is sitting eye to eye with the mirror, all is well but once he begins to tug and tug on it, he will begin to see a stretched out version of himself. Do we want our children to look in the mirror and see someone else? I am going way out of the park here but is it possible that people are self conscious about themselves because as a kid they saw themselves as weird looking? Yes, its a heck of a stretch I know.
We are in the year 2006. The century where we were supposed to be flying around in spaceships and living with the stars. Why can't we have a baby mirror that works just like a normal mirror? Is it too much to ask?
