After a few crummy attempts to take a “selfie,” I finally got a good one today.

I have a very cheap cellphone, so that isn’t even an option.  Instead,  I use my 35mm SLR.

Previously, I’d point the camera at my bathroom mirror and try to figure out the correct angle to include the part of the reflected image I wanted.

Of course, the lighting is terrible, and I turn yellow in the process.

The photo is of my eye two days post-op.  The puffiness is gone, but it has been bleeding enough to leave a red mark.

As I smile at the photo, the thought runs through my head that “guys like scars, gals don’t.”

It’s true!  At least for me!
