I'm not sure if it's because I'm a writer and I don't like to use improper grammar or short-cutted versions of words. Okay, sometimes I do indulge in the latter, to be fair. I digress.
It may be due to the fact that I have an incredibly small phone and unusually pudgy, almost manly fingers.
Remember the girl Jerry dumped on "Seinfeld" for having #ManHands? Sadly, they are real...and attached to my person.
I'm not much better at SnapChat. Fine, I am markedly worse at SnapChat.
I don't use the cool animated graphics offered. I wind up sending the same message repeatedly...to 84 people. I accidentally ghosted everyone; including me.
My sister keeps trying to coach me on how to keep our "streak" alive and I keep screwing it up. [Don't worry, it doesn't involve any disrobing of any sort]. Keep tryin', Bean, I'm clearly not the ideal student. #SnapChatIsForYoungPeople
I'm pretty efficient at both Linked In and Facebook, though. Those I've got down swimmingly. But speaking of my favorite swimmer, he tells me that I'm constantly misusing the filters feature on my phone camera.
I guess there are just certain generational functions I may never master.
But that's cool. I think I'm doing pretty all right without a filter when we chat daily; I'm told I'm causing a smile or two -- so, at least I've got that going for me, right?
Oh and up there in the selfie, that's OLD pk ... no filter. She ain't perfect. Kinda wrinkly, kooky mop top, some unfortunate age spots, etc.
But at the end of the day, she sure does mean well.
