When you first gaze into the mirror on a morning, your immediate reaction is normally......?

Asked by ucme (46448points) September 16th, 2010

That first sight of yourself after a good old sleep. Your reflection staring back as if it’s trying to say something to you. I mean, maybe you avoid looking at yourself until you feel more awake. Or perhaps you gaze into the mirror almost immediately despite what horrors may lie ahead :¬) So yeah, thoughts please!

Rub my face.

ucme's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille Yeah somewhat disturbingly I can believe that to be the case. I’m going to say you have better legs though…....just! :¬D

You don’t want to know what races through my head when I first see myself in the morning. My mother always taught me that if you don’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. ;)

Frenchfry's avatar

Dam. I need to brush my hair.

ucme's avatar

@TheOnlyNeffie Oh I do I do…...:¬) @Mama_Cakes Ahh never mind the little sarcastic thingymajig :¬D I’m guessing you know it’s true really. You saucy mare from below stairs you XD

A blank stare, since I feel like a zombie.

I look to see what my hair looks like, flatten it out a little if needed, then move on with the morning’s chores until i wash it.

deni's avatar

I usually think I look better when I’ve just woken up than at any other point in the day. I have no makeup on and my hair is usually pulled back and messy, which I for some reason think looks better than when I fix it any other time. And my skin looks better in the mornings. But really the first thing I look at it is my eyebrows. Then I pluck them…I like plucking them. lol.

ucme's avatar

@deni Pluck yeah!

Coloma's avatar

I am a stuffy, puffy mess in the mornings. lol

I have seasonal allergies so right now I am a puffy eyed, sneezing mess for the first couple hours I am awake.

Need lots of coffee and a clay face mask to deflate my face. haha

Aesthetic_Mess's avatar

I look horrible in the mornings. I look horrible all the time. There really is no difference

ucme's avatar

@Coloma “Stuffy puffy mess?” You make it sound strangely attractive :¬) I can just picture the geese scattering away from you in a mild panic XD

ucme's avatar

@Aesthetic_Mess << Yeah I see what you mean! Welcome to fluther you aesthetically challenged individual you :¬)

Coloma's avatar


Yep, I have officially reached the age where I can go from ‘WTF!,” at 6 a.m. to ’ Hmmm, not bad, not bad at all..” by 9 a.m. lol

tinyfaery's avatar

I don’t really think of anything. I just look.

wundayatta's avatar

I look at myself very little. When I do look, I rarely look at me. Rather, I look at parts, like the parts that need to be brushed or shaved. I don’t really think about the rest, and as a result, I can’t remember actually seeing myself.

I need to put on lipstick so my lips stop looking like I’m a corpse.

Aesthetic_Mess's avatar

@Coloma I know what you mean about the allergies

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Neutral – maybe, I’ll wash my hair.

Scooby's avatar

My first thought? Once The other week was… I guess I’d sit on too rather than look at it first thing of a morning!! :-/
Usually though it’s just, UURRGGHHHH!

josie's avatar

My immediate reaction is “Dude, you have some work to do before you expose yourself to a hopeful and optimistic public.”

ucme's avatar

kenmc's avatar

I think, “eh… could be worse.”

downtide's avatar

I avoid looking at myself in the mirror as much as I can get away with. And will continue to do so, until I can look in the mirror and actually recognise myself.

Facade's avatar

The first mirror I see is the full-length one in front of our bed. I look pretty good from the neck down lol. My puffy face and crazy hair are another story.

tedibear's avatar

First thought: “Damn. The plastic surgery fairies didn’t show up again last night.”

prolificus's avatar

PIMPLE!!!??!!! That’s the first thing I’ll notice. After the usual routine, I’ll look into my eyes and smile.

ChocolateReigns's avatar

Siiiigh…....Brush hair, change into real clothes, and eat. After that routine, I can think. From there on, who knows what’ll happen.

MacBean's avatar


This is not limited to first thing in the morning.

Axemusica's avatar

I’ve grown a beard. What mirrors? Those don’t usually show up until noon, when I need to use the bathroom at work.

chocolatechip's avatar

“Damn, I’m sexy.”

cookieman's avatar

Vincent_Lloyd's avatar

I sorta think the same thing like @cprevite….Kinda I guess…. I’m always thinking, “Wow… look pathetic….. Where the hell are my clothes! And how am I horny at a time like this! I’m gonna be late for school!!!” But yeah that or I think “Get up and put some clothes on…......wash hair and go talk to amber when you get to school…” Then I never do it…..

BoBo1946's avatar

@tragiclikebowie flirt loll he knows i was kidding him.

free_fallin's avatar

I gaze into the mirror a bit, but not because of the reflection. I’m in deep thought in the mornings and I generally have something or someone specifically on my mind. I look the same in the mornings as I do when I go to sleep; there isn’t much change. I try to keep a positive outlook and my first thoughts of myself are almost always positive. In my head I tell myself I am going to have another awesome day.

tragiclikebowie's avatar

@BoBo1946 :P just couldn’t resist

BoBo1946's avatar

loll…got’cha my friend.

Mama_Cakes2's avatar

I also look to see how crazy my hair is. Crazy, crazy hair = great sex from the night before/early hours.

Coloma's avatar

I think I get most of my crazy hair from waking up in crazy possistions such as completely sideways. lol
When I sleep alone I am all over the bed, so it’s equal to great sex. lol

lonelydragon's avatar

“My hair is a mess!”

@Coloma Great sleep is better than great sex. It lasts longer. LOL.
