A Bushman picks up a mirror lying in the veld, but never having seen one before, does not know what it is. When he looks at it, he is shocked and scared because the face he sees looks just like his dead father, who he misses very much. Every time he gets sad and misses his father, he looks into the mirror and cries his eyes out. His wife sees this from time to time and wonders what is going on until one day she grabs the mirror from him. She looks in the mirror and sees the ugliest woman she has ever seen in her life and smacks her husband against the head screaming: "You dog, Is it this ugly old cow you are crying over?"
