Silly Stillies

Kids on adults taking selfies

‘They are so selfish, these adults, don’t you think,' cribbed the tiny tomato.
‘You bet, said his friend’, another teeny-tiny tomato
‘All they care for is these silly selfies.’
‘I know. Silly stillies! Look how they fake that smile.’
‘They don’t know how to put on a nice and big smile like we do.’
‘I wonder what makes them so happy.’
‘I just overheard what they said about us.’
‘They think we are a nuisance in these selfies. Oh my goodness. Isn’t that a crime? We little ones bring so much peppiness in their dull drab dramatic world!!’
‘Let us ruin it. Tug along. They won’t buy us a toy anyways. Let us be the Selfie-Spoliers.’

Moms on kids spoiling selfies

‘Can you not just play with your friends? We arranged play-dates just for you,' says one mom.
‘Uff….They will never mend their ways. Look how they push and crib,' says another.
‘They won’t come in the pic anyway.’
‘Why are you peeping? Stand aside. We will take you pics later.’
‘No, they are not listening. Ahh….they came in the last click.’
‘Take one more.’
‘Ready. Don’t make a silly face kids. Put on a nice smile. Don’t you know how to pose for a picture properly?’
‘Stop playing. Stand. Rather sit. They will be in the corners.’
‘Look. We look great, don’t we?!’
‘Look at the kids. Wish they had posed nicely.’
‘We can edit it. Crop will do.’
‘Let’s take one more selfie. No kids this time.’

Kids are listening. They still tug along.
