Nobody Is As Good As Their Selfie

I must confess I am not up to date with the latest technical gizmos. So much technology is around today that I believe most people have really lost their identity. I do not think they will soon recover.

I am not against modern technology; I simply cannot keep up with it. I would vote for anybody who would call a moratorium on all updates for the next five years. As soon as I get a product, it is out of date and I need, desperately need, an update if I am going to benefit from this product.

This brings me to the subject of the Selfie. It took me a long time to understand what this was. My clock is not always ticking. My idea of a Selfie is someone who is self-centered. How was I to know it had something to do with taking your own picture? I am not sure what to call people who take their own picture, but the modern term today is Selfie.

People want to believe that they are as good as their Selfie. I do not believe that for one moment. If I am as good as my Selfie, I am in pretty bad shape. I know you can Photoshop a picture to make yourself look a lot better, but then I ask, is that really a Selfie?

I think there are other ways to evaluate yourself.

For me, my worth has to do with the pens I use. The Selfie that I took has no class and certainly lacks a lot of dignity.
