What I Saw

Tonight I came home and started to get ready for bed. I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth. I put toothpaste on the brush and looked at myself in the mirror as I started to brush and I was somewhat surprised to see a bear’s face. Of course, at first I jumped back and put my hands in front of my face. I think that’s pretty normal. But then I saw bear paws over a bear’s face and I got it.

I continued brushing. I thought, “Wow, do I have sharp teeth.” I looked at my wet nose. It looked so shiny under the bathroom’s strong lights. I opened my mouth wide as I brushed. I thought, “Boy, I bet I could fit a whole fox in there.” I spit out the toothpaste and washed my mouth out with water. I took out my contacts. I looked at my face in the mirror again. I was a blur. I felt a little sad because the specialness was gone.
