Alexander told his younger sister Clarissa that if you take seven deep breaths in front of the mirror something spectacular will happen.
“You need to do it outside,” he said, “because you never know what’s going to happen.”
Clarissa took her small wall mirror outside and propped it up against the leg of the porch chair on the lawn. She looked in the mirror and took seven deep breaths.
That is when Alexander threw a bucket of water over her.
