Being 75 does not mean you have to stop understanding new gadgets or trends. I remember when Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, when Equal was created as an artificial sweetener and when Magnum PI began and ended but I can still get hip with the kids, get my “fro yo” on (that’s cold yogurt) or take a selfie.
I was concerned that taking a selfie would be unsafe if you consider radiation from the phone or falling if you try to take a selfie while you walk but through my research and from trying to take a selfie on my own I found it is very safe.
The selfie is when you take a picture of yourself and you can’t get hurt when you take it.
First I took a picture of a tree. Then I took a picture of a kid peeing on my grass. Then I took a picture of my car, a bunyon on my foot and my knee blisters.
But I couldn’t figure out how to take a picture of my face.
“You have to turn the camera image so you see yourself in phone and then take the picture.” my friend Bob said. So I turned the camera up over my head, to the side, bent down and tried to take the picture and got stuck in a squat position but finally it worked.
Here’s my picture:
I did not get hurt or lose a limb. No, taking a selfie is not dangerous or scary at all.
