In what I call the Parlor, which is really just the backend of our long living room, we have this full-length mirror covering one wall. It's obvious that at one time a window was here, looking out on our neighbors' gangway. I'm sure there was a practical reason for covering it up with a mirror inside and siding on the outside.
Last Sunday it broke. We don't know how or why. That is to say, we cannot pin it to anything. Just one moment it was fine and the next we noticed a crack. We did have Katness' kids over, as well as our neighbor's girls, but they all appear as shocked as we were and at their respective ages, lying isn't quite a thing yet.
I don't think anyone was the explicit cause. Maybe a large vehicle drove by and caused some vibrations? or maybe it was just the mirrors time.
The irony is that when we first bought this house, I said I was gonna see what was behind that mirror and even get rid of it. Instead, we put a bookcase in front of it, and then later my secretary desk and called it a day. As we got rid of furniture and as the kids grew, it was nice having the open space.
