Impression – are you impressed?

via Daily Prompt: Impression

What’s your impression of me when you see my smiling ugly mug?

My own impression of me is based on what I see in the mirror – too tall, bulky and awkward.  I don’t impress myself.  I prefer not to look in the mirror, I prefer not to see photographs of me, I prefer living in the bubble in which I’m still 22 and tall and elegant (!!), fit and healthy, long flowing locks and able to participate in the annual 7-a-side football tournament my employers hosted.  In shorts!  Those were the days and I still get the shock of my life now when I see me walking towards me, reflected in glass doors – that’s not me anymore!

fat me
