Deny Selfies

By the end of 2012, Time magazine considered “selfie” one of the top 10 buzzwords of the year. By 2013 “selfie” was Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year.

A few weeks ago I took my first “selfie” to send to one our daughters who lives in South America. Thanks to “WhatsApp” you can easily send pictures, texts and even videos instantly all over the world. Recently the Boston Red Sox were in the news (as well as in some trouble) for a selfie taken by David Ortiz with President Obama. Ellen DeGeneres broke the retweeting record recently with her group selfie taken at the Academy Awards.
