National Selfie Day

Ok we have now seen everything! Did you know that today is National Selfie Day?   There is a day for everything it seems! Today I want to share one of my favorite "selfies" of Cody. It's just too cute for words!



History of Selfie Day
Selfies have probably existed as long as hand-held cameras have been a thing. Human vanity is so utterly profound that if we’re given the opportunity to do something self-aggrandizing, we do. This habit, in our defense, doesn’t seem to be strictly human in nature. Given access to a camera and a little time to figure it out, monkeys will start snapping selfies like no one’s business.
In 2014, BBC officially declared a Selfie Day, which amusingly heralded a sudden decline in selfies. Interestingly, there was a similar drop after the Oxford English Dictionary added ‘selfie’ to its pages. Apparently making something official is a damned fine way of making sure no one wants to do them anymore.
Well, we all know that there is no decline in selfies when it comes to cats and dogs, now is there? Go ahead pals, snap away!!!

  18. We are surprised to learn today that there are innumerable psychotic printers out there. Also, how many humans have never replaced them. Perhaps there should be a psychotic printer day and Windows should get an award for leaving so many humans printerless. After reading your comment this morning, Jan hugged our printer and thanked it for coming back to life. :)

  20. Mom Paula used timers for a long time until smart phones existed. The problem with the phones is that Mom Paula's arms are too short.

  25. I'm not big on pictures of myself (I have to be coaxed into a selfie) - but I have enough of Bear Cat to make up the difference. I even have a ton trying to capture Bear and I together. You take an adorable selfie, Cody!

  26. You are truly handsome, Cody! :)

  27. You're so cute, Cody!! We normally don't like boys, but we'd consider you if you lived a bit closer! We had no idea about National Selfie Day, but these humans sure come up with something new to celebrate (and make money on) way too often!

    Mom had a good laugh when she read the additional info, so thank you for sharing!
