Selfie Disaster

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Aw Mom just take your selfie already so we can send them all in one text to Callie,” Marshall said.

“I don’t remember how to take them.”

“Are you kidding me?”

“Look, Junior, you know how much trouble I have with this smartphone. Nothing has changed. I would prefer to go back to my old phone. Why do I need this smartphone anyhow? I prefer to use my desktop computer. Just take my picture with your phone and send that picture. Why does it have to be a selfie?”

“We just want them to be all the same. I will set it up and you will see your picture in the frame and you then just hit the button on the camera. Do you think you can handle that, Mom?”

“I suppose so, but I don’t see why you can’t just take my picture yourself.”

“Here, Mom, it is all set up and ready to go. Make sure you are in the frame the way you want it and hit the camera button.”

There was a flash, and then Mom said, “Here it’s all done. Don’t ask me again.”
