I said I will almost never take a selfie. If I'm that all impt than we are all in big trouble. I am not great so that is reality. And a real Jew knows they aren't the hottest thing since....(fill in the blank) . Nobody needs to be impressed with me and that is more than humble. Please have more respect for those of us who are sometimes quiet or shy but inside know more than we let onto. Thanks much.
