Ever since the creation of the cell phone, taking pictures of yourself has become an obsession.
Most Facebook pages are crammed with selfies.
Wherever we are, we want the world to know of our existence.
At the dentist, on safari, on a camel, petting a walrus, catching soap bubbles, or at the vet’s with Psycho.
All of social media is an excuse to be a narcissist.
I noticed even my dermatologist now has a Facebook page. In a way that makes sense since he’s in the beauty business. Tummy tucks and facelifts and such. But I’m sure he’s not the one keeping it current. He has no time with a waiting room full of patients needing Botox injections. Some 18-year old is doing it, probably his granddaughter.
Everyone wants to be famous.
From the bailiff to the zoo keeper.
And that requires a photograph.
The one you take of yourself.
On the way to the liposuction appointment.
