If they were alive today, I bet they’d fancy the selfie.

“Selfies are just a way to show that you are part of the world,” says NPR’s  Kate Myers. “Here I am, and the world is more interesting because I’m in it.”

“Selfie” elbowed its way so quickly into our everyday conversation that it is the unanimous pick as 2013 Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionaries….

……..and it’s Cheri’s pick for this week’s photo challenge.

The sample sentence from the Oxford Dictionaries entry for selfie (noun) says: “Occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself every day isn’t necessary.”

O RLY?
