We are currently living in an age where people do and have things that I just don't understand.
The newest fad that I don't understand to hit my generation is the art of a “selfie”.
Selfie: A close up picture of yourself taken at a flattering angle typically via cell phone.
Because, you know, cameras are so out of date! Sigh…
My cousin is obsessed with taking selfies.
She snaps them every chance she gets and loves to share them on social media.
If we plan a girls night, she will respond with, "We have to take selfies!".
I hate taking selfies. They are never flattering for me and usually make me want a nose job!
For Christmas, my uncle (Cousin's father), bought her the best gift ever!
He bought her a selfie stick.
Yes, that has really been created!
Selfie Stick: A long stick with a handle on one end and a clasp to hold your phone on the other. Its purpose is to take selfies with maximum flatterization*. All you need to do is adjust the clasp to fit your cell phone, set the camera on a timer, angle the stick, and smile!
*Yes, I know flatterization is not a real word, but neither is selfie!!!
I've walked through Manhattan and seen groups of people blocking walkways huddled under a selfie stick.
I've seen girls sitting on benches posing for their selfie stick like paid models.
I've seen my cousin making kissy faces to her inanimate selfie stick and giggle at the result.
I'm all for capturing memories, but this is just way too funny!
What do you think about the Selfie Stick? Is it a selfie do or don't?
