Moral of the story is "Don't bring a knife to a mirror fight!"

What a weapon of choice. Why did he even have a throwable mirror on hand? Was he checking out his hair?

The better choice would have been one of them public school chairs. Those things are heavy, hurt, and are indestructible.

He threw a mirror at her? What was he doing carrying mirror around?

Shogun36 and WilliB, I currently work at an elementary and junior high shool in Japan and my best guess is that he threw one of those mirrors that are hung up around the schools. The schools I'm at have mirrors hung up directly across the stairs to see who is going up and down.

It isn't likely that chairs would be found in the hallways.

That's his story and he's sticking to it.

Maybe she saw her reflection and she scampered off back to the cave she once crawled!
