Can I share something here? Do you promise not to laugh so loudly that it won’t carry across from your space to mine? I just, I have to make an admission because if I don’t it may in fact kill me. I don’t get selfies. I honestly do not understand them.
I understand pictures of places you enjoy or people and pets. Yes I get this as a means of holding onto time. It’s a way to freeze time for that moment. But selfies? I just don’t understand them.
An acquaintance shared with me that she has over fifty selfies on her phone. That was after she deleted the so-so selfies. She had a total of ninety-three before the purge. They represent everything from a good hair day to having received good news as well as good outfits and great shoe days.
Now I’m at a point in my life where I don’t jump onto fades. I just do what makes sense to me. Selfies? Not so much. I mean I see myself everyday in the mirror. The one person I know I will see throughout the day is myself. It’s a type of guarantee I gave myself. So I’m pretty sure that I won’t forget what I look like right now. I also know what my clothes and shoes look like so I don’t need pictures of them. After all they are right there in my closet.
Is it just me? Is it that I really am officially old now? Or are there other people who find the whole selfie phase to be senseless?
