Let me tell you a story.
Once upon a time, there was a person living in a beautiful forest. This person was completely by itself, and had never known or seen another human. Now, this person was really, really, really ugly, but it did not know this because it had never even seen its own face and, obviously, no one had ever told informed this person of their ugliness. The creature had always been very happy with itself and its life, and it never wanted anything more but to live. It was content. But then, one day, the person saw a river and approached it. When the creature looked into the river, it saw, for the first time, its own reflection. As the person stared at the image of its hideous face, it couldn't help but think one thing.
"Wow....what a beautiful river."

Lovely!

Did you ever read The Outsider by H.P. Lovecraft? Its a very similar tale, except without anything resembling a happy ending.

OK, so, that makes it totally different, but still... The Outsider was a good story and this made me think of it. :)

Re:
No problem... I just like pimping Lovecraft any chance I can get. Modern horror fiction wouldn't exist as it does today had it not been for him.
