"Don't look up there," I advise, while pointing to the camera, "Look down here!" Yeah, right... if you've ever jumped inside one of these pop-up boxes with a privacy curtain, you know that it is theoretically impossible to look anywhere else! It's only natural to want to look at the mirror instead of the lens; and with three short seconds and a deafening countdown to keep you on the edge of your seat, there really isn't time to prep for the next shot, much less remember to look back down. Still, you find yourself experiencing as much fun as you can in under a minute, for the low, low price of $3... and any amount of pride you had left when you walked in the door.
Some memories will last a lifetime, others will haunt you forever; but if you can tough it out long enough to wipe the lipstick off your teeth and throw some impromptu caution to the wind, you might actually get to experience the best of both worlds. You only get one chance to be their mother (or father, in which case you can disregard the lipstick comment; unless of course, you're one of those fathers), so keep your head out of your ass and have a good time doing it. And hey... even if it gets documented and published on the Internet, at least you can say you were smiling!
