In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I’ve Become My Parents.”
HAHAHA This is such a funny prompt! There is more than one habit I’ve acquired that makes me think I’m like my parents (It’s scary), but I think the funniest would be I insist on taking pictures a lot now 🙂
Remember when you were a kid and your parents would insist on taking your picture in the most conspicuous, attention-grabbing place and in the slowest way possible? This may include you with an embarrassing outfit (that they keep insisting you’re cute at), or a school play or event where no one is taking pictures but your parents -___-
Like why can’t they understand that you’re just trying to keep your cool kid facade here 😄
But now that I’ve grown older, I start to regret that I didn’t have that much pictures to look at – on my funny costumes in school plays, or children’s parties,or family gatherings or videos of me tripping or getting food all over my face, or my sibling fighting or family trips out of town. Back then, every shot consumes a space in your limited film – every shot mattered, so maybe that’s why we didn’t have that much pictures. It’s an upside of technology: now you can just point and shoot and choose the pictures that you want, without worrying if you still have enough film.
So now whenever there’s a chance I try to take pictures, not only of people but also of places that we go to 🙂 Sometimes my parents get so embarrassed because I was the only kid taking their mum and pup’s pictures (It’s payback time!) but I still insist on doing so. The laughs you get after will be all worth it!
Good photos make for a great mood booster on gloomy days plus it gives you the chance to laugh at yourself (and others too!) from time to time 🙂 I find that candid ones and even the blurred ones are the happiest to look at – takes you back to those happy times ^__^
