I was obsessed with taking selfies and my ex resented it.
Welcome to the LOL Mom, my new personal essay series where I share #boymomlifebelike moments. I'll get to tickle your funny bone all while preserving memories. It'll be like our little time capsule. And potentially a way to embarrass Evan in the future when he's old enough. It's a win-win.
I am a Selfie Queen. And I am not ashamed to admit it. I take that back. I used to be highly embarrassed by my love of selfies, especially when I was in a relationship with Evan’s dad.
He is anti-social media. The man has a Facebook profile that has a feed full of photos, gifs, videos, and memes just because he’s been tagged on them. It’s the most inactive profile in the history of Facebook. My profile, on the other hand, could have been in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most popping Facebook feed since Mark Zuckerberg launched the social network from his dorm room at Phillips Academy Exeter.
Fun fact: I graduated from Philips Academy Andover, Exeter’s rival (and better), private school. Oh, how I wonder what would have become of me and my writing career if I had sauntered over to Zuckerberg’s door room when I was cheerleading for an away game on Exter’s campus. If I were as adventurous then as I am now and into white guys (still not a thing for me now), I could have made something of myself instead of begging folks on social media to read my stories, give them a thumbs up, and follow them by clicking on that button right next to the title of my series, The LOL Mom. (See what I did there, Kindle Vella?)
I made different choices. Thank you, Mami, for drilling into my head that I should not be a ho or a golddigger and date men for luuuuuuuurve. Oh, the life I would have lived if I had bagged Zuckerberg or that guy that I graduated with whose father owns Goodyear (yes, the tires and the blimp)! Read the rest on Amazon!
