Hmm, now I can’t fit it back in the blister. Time for a lighter and needle to melt a hole in it.

Opps, I broke it off while trying to put it away. At least I can fix it this time. Oh wait, Oh no! I chipped the paint!

I give up, you’re going straight in the display case and not into the box again where you’re gonna lose your mirror again
