And I’ll Prove It

You think I’m heartless and cheap. Well I’m neither heartless nor cheap and I can prove it to you. Here, take a look at this selfie. Would a heartless and cheap man be tossing a few coins at a homeless guy? No, he would not. This photo shows just how caring and generous I am. See, I told you that you’ve got me all wrong, didn’t I?

Friday Fictioneers — The Selfie

Tricia burst out laughing. She held her phone up so her husband, Rick, could see the screen. “What the hell is that?”

Tricia smiled. “Since the kids haven’t seen Grandpa in almost two years due to COVID travel restrictions, I asked him to take a selfie and email it to me so that I could show the kids. He must have used the front camera instead of the rear one.”

“Or he did it intentionally,” Rick said. “He hates having his picture taken and it’s actually a very artistic photo.”

Three Line Tales — Taking a Tumble

BDC34E1B-10FD-4B42-A7CB-988DD0746F06“Young lady,” the laundromat attendant asked the girl who was sitting inside the drum of one of the dryers with just her feet dangling out, “what exactly is it that you think you’re doing?”

She looked at the man and innocently said, “My boyfriend told me to take a tumble, so I climbed into this dryer and will be taking a selfie showing him that I did what he asked.”

The attendant shook his head and said, “I’m sorry to tell you this, young lady, but I think you’re taking your boyfriend’s request a bit too literally.”

#100WW — Duck Face

C5A749DA-2433-4ACD-9FC1-D3B5553D58FDLooking at the map, David was trying to figure out how to get to the museum. “I think it’s just a few blocks from here,” he said to his wife. Not hearing a response, he turned around and saw that she was taking yet another selfie, with that ridiculous duck face expression.

“How many of those stupid, pouty selfies are you going to take on this trip?” David asked her.

“I want all of my Facebook friends to see how much fun we’re having,” she said.

David sighed. “Then you should try aiming the camera at something other than yourself.”
