Mirror, Mirror

The little girl knelt in the confessional and said, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned."

"What is it, my child?"

The girl said, "Father, I have committed the sin of vanity.  Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am."

The priest turned, took a good look at the girl, and said, "My dear, I have good news. That isn't a sin - it's only a mistake."
