Recently when I went shopping, I saw a lot of girls clicking selfies completely oblivious of the surroundings. I was relieved because I thought I was being weird and narcissistic by clicking my own pictures all day. However for most guys this is something they don’t comprehend. Why blame them when even our spelling godfather Microsoft Word does not get it! I just want to say …Dude we depend on you for all our spellings…update yourself!
Well for all those husbands/boyfriends/brothers/fathers out there who don’t understand what a selfie is, here are some insights.
A selfie is a self-portrait. Like you most probably believe, we DID NOT invent this word; it was included in the Oxford Dictionary from year 2013.
We do not ask you to click our pictures anymore, and torment or embarrass you. When we are clicking a selfie, if you feel embarrassed you can just move out of the frame and act like a stranger. We will be really grateful.
Most selfies are taken in restrooms. This is because corporate and mall restrooms are well lit. Do not complain, as you are probably waiting somewhere checking out some hot chics, or in the worst case inquiring when Apple is releasing the next iphone.
A selfie is harmless. It hardly costs anything. We don’t even send our selfies to you.
You may think why we need a selfie when there are mirrors everywhere. You are not expected to understand this.
With selfies there is no dearth of profile pictures.
Almost anyone looks like a celebrity in selfies.
Selfies relieve us from stress and uplifts our confidence like no other.
It is the most loved feel-good activity, after shopping and cupcakes.
It is foolish to think that women who click a lot of selfies are self-obsessed. Yeah we are, but it is still foolish to think like that.
If we click a lot of selfies it doesn’t mean that we are selfless.
Selfies are not clicked only when we are wearing something new. Even a school uniform is reason enough.
Selfie experts can pose like it was Dabboo Ratnani who clicked them by not showing their extended hands which holds the phone. This is no ordinary feat.
A good selfie involves some financial risk . Chances of the phone falling down when we are adjusting our hair cannot be ruled out. It is not a child's play, and moreover, it is not silly.
A selfie that turned out very well may not even need to go under the editing knife! It is a real time saver!
Selfies with friends rejuvenates friendship and keeps memories alive. We do not lose patience if we have to click countless pictures just to make sure everyone looks good. When everyone agrees on one, that is one of those moments when we have bonded for life.
So next time she takes a selfie at the mall, or takes more time at the restroom, you know what to do. Just stop asking and keep walking.
