As I’m sure many of you are aware, selfies are very big right now. But since I don’t own a cell phone, I’ve never had the narcissistic pleasure of taking 10,000 pictures of myself and sharing them on Instagram, Facebook, or some online dating website, as so many people seem to do.
I can't tell you how many times in a day I will spot people on the streets of Philadelphia taking selfies. And not only the streets, but in stores, restaurants, while driving in their cars, and yes, even in public restrooms, I kid you not! I guess because bathrooms have mirrors, they're the ideal spot for taking selfies because you can gaze at your gorgeous reflection while licking your lips and clicking your smartphone.
Just for the hell of it while putting this post together, I Googled "selfies" and then clicked on the image button. And do you know what a large percentage of the images were? Either guys flexing their biceps in a bathroom mirror, or girls wearing bikini bathing suits; posing as if they were in a Victoria's Secret ad.
Can someone please tell me what the deal is with selfies?
The WHOLE WORLD seems to be pointing their cell phones at themselves.
Everywhere I look…SELFIES! SELFIES! SELFIES!
I mean, seriously, how many pictures can you keep taking of yourself? And why would anyone feel the need to constantly show their friends and family members what they look like everywhere they go and everything they do? What, are they publicly documenting every frame of their lives?
Honestly, I simply don't understand it.
However, I decided to see what the big hoo-ha is in taking selfies by using my digital camera.
Here I am early yesterday morning, still half-asleep, taking selfies while looking at other people's selfies online...
Here I am selfie brushing my teeth...
Here I am selfie drinking coffee in my apartment elevator (and god only knows what the security guard at the front desk was thinking because there is a surveillance camera in the elevator) I look like a serial killer...
Lastly, here I am selfie buying toilet paper...
And tomorrow I'm going to try this, so stay tuned...
Have a SELFIE Monday, y'all!
