When your mom’s hairbrush was a microphone

Somewhere between ages 8 and 13. Because it looked like a microphone, with the handle and the big bristles representing the old-school big black mikes. The question is this: When you were alone in your room (or in the living room blasting your dad’s 8-track), belting out some Neil Diamond or Stix or whatever into your mom’s hairbrush, did you face the bristles inward, so that you could see them and imagine you were singing into a microphone? Or did you face the bristles outward, so that your imagined audience could see them?
