Selfie on a Stick

selfie-stickWho knew? Selfie on a stick. Click stick. Never heard about it.

Made Time magazine’s “Top 25 Inventions of 2014”, was on Good Morning, America, the Today Show, in the New York Post, Fashion Week Daily, and more. How did I hear about this amazing invention?

Every Asian tourist in Washington, DC, had one in their hand. The family and I were out and about downtown and glimpsed people holding their i-Phones on an extended stick.

“Look—” Benedetto chuckled, “their arms are too A-camera-on-a-selfie-stic-011short for a selfie!”

Odd sight though it was, I cut him short.

“Take a note of this,” I instructed my first-born. “Selfie on a stick. It’s going to be next Christmas’s hot gift item.”

“I’m telling you, I have a nose for trends….”

Little did I know, that was the gadget’s real name. And apparently it’s already here, so my import instincts are a bit tardy to make millions on it. Oh well.

From what I’ve read, you can set your phone or i-Pad on a timer, or buy a more advanced model of the stick whereby you snap away with a Bluetooth remote shutter. Currently from $15 to $25 or so, the click stick will revolutionize your selfie life.

I had no idea. But then I’m a late bloomer, having taken my first selfie in mid-October, lol.

Who knew it could be so cheap to “change your entire perspective”? In our increasingly-narcissistic world, having a longer reach is only the beginning.
