Dear blog readers, after all this time, I’m sure you’re wondering: When will Lia tackle the “selfie stick” in her blog? Well, friends, today is your lucky day.
Adam and I are having a wonderful time on our trip to Europe — I’ll be sure to post more on that later. But for now, a short piece about the selfie stick.
Presenting: The top five things your selfie stick says about you:
- I am a tourist — not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m definitely, surely not going to even attempt to blend in with my surroundings
- I love architecture, but I think that famous buildings like Buckingham Palace, the Taj Mahal, the Egyptian pyramids, and so many others would look better if my face were in front of it.
- I’m not interested in talking to strangers — even the nice, friendly ones who would gladly take my photo and then in exchange I’d take their photo, and then we’d talk about where we’re from and think, wow, this little world really ain’t so bad.
- Seriously, I am so uninterested in asking a stranger for help that I would rather carry a metal stick around with me all day.
- I truly believe that my metal stick and my arm are more capable than you to take this picture.
I will credit my dad with one great idea, though — if only a selfie stick could double as an umbrella, we’d be on to something!
See you on the other side of the pond soon.
