Balderdash!

29 Jun

“It’s certainly no longer surprising to see someone brandishing one of these wands of self-importance. Maybe they still inspire eye-rolls. But either there are enough people who don’t care if they look silly or there are enough people who realize that selfie sticks are rather convenient.” (Contrera, Washington Post Style Blog, 6/28/15)

Granted, pulling out “the stick” mid-roller coaster ride seems like a bad idea.  But for such poor judgment to bring about a park-wide ban?  Balderdash, I say.  A selfie stick sensibly exercised on solid, open ground in front of a picture-worthy backdrop is hardly going to cause harm to anyone. And naturally, how you or I might appear to others remains irrelevant.  I did indeed happen to receive “the gift of 2014” myself, and I like it.  Unfortunately, Disney is now the one to say balderdash to me and all the rest of you who believe convenience trumps silliness.
