    mes

    In front of us was a heavy oak door, and when Dad pushed it open, I half expected someone’s crazy, locked-away wife to spring out at us.
    But as I looked into the dim room, the only person I saw was me. Well, lots of mes. (mess??)
    Nearly every square inch of wall was covered in mir¬rors of all kinds; huge mirrors in ornate frames that looked like they weighed three times more than me; tiny, round mirrors that only reflected little pieces of me; old mirrors, so warped and spotted that I could hardly see anything in them at all.

    Re: mes

    It's the (very strange sounding, I know!) plural of "me".

    Because of all the mirrors, she could see many many versions of herself, reflected endlessly around the room.

    Re: mes

    It would be better written as mes - pronounced meez.
