I really don’t understand why people make such a big deal about people taking selfies. They aren’t a new thing. I remember my (much older) siblings taking tons of pictures of themselves with disposable cameras, and people used to sit for hours to get a portrait painted of themselves to display on their walls. Oh it’s different now because we put them on social media sites? Uh, I think not.
The other day I had a really good idea for a story:
A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and shallow lust; the other group think it’s a beautiful tragedy about poisonous hatred conquered by love. Reconciliation seems impossible-
-then a person from one group falls in love with a person from the other
