    old peek

    please help with the meaning of following sentence:

    "And oh, letís not forget the old peek in the mirror. If youíve been known to strike a fashionably cynical pose once in a while, donít be surprised to see the kids trying it out."

    Does it mean when I was a child and looking my own body in the mirror?

    Re: old peek

    No. In this case, old means customary.

    Good question!

    Also, we would say "look at myself," not "look at my body."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
