M4 : (through a mouthful of toothpaste and singing/mumbling/frothing in a falsetto voice) Winter is here, winter is finally here!
Mirror Image: Hmmm. Yes, I can see that!
M4: Excuse me? Meaning?!?
Mirror Image: The extra layer of insulation you've packed on speaks volumes about the volumes of festive cheer you've been consuming!
M4: Oh you kill-joy you! 'Tis the season to be jolly and all the other jazz...
Mirror Image: There's jolly and then there's folly. You my dear, have regressed quite a few letters back!
M4: Hahaha-blah! You think you're so funny!
Mirror Image: You'd be rolling on the floor laughing if you could only see what I really see! It's downright hilarious!
M4: Hey, so I might have indulged in an extra piece of rum ball or four, so what? It's the season of merry-making! I am revelling in the winter cheer and I'm not ashamed if my body shows it! That's what we have sweaters for!
Mirror Image: Your body was all set for winter before it even arrived in all its nippy glory!
Mirror Image: Your boobs, my dear. They seem to have gone south for the winter and from the looks of it, I'd say they've take up permanent residency there!
M4: (picks up vase and takes aim...)
