The Fly Catcher

Good Day and Good Riddance! It's officially October and somehow I'm not convinced that's even possible. 

But more importantly it's Wednesday and on Wednesdays I confess. I also rarely wear pink and today is no exception.

There's plenty of silly things to confess today but after I snuck in three separate open-mouthed selfies into yesterday's good-news post - I want to take this confessions opportunity to poke fun at the selfie pose I can't seem to quit. 

The Fly Catcher (The Open-Mouthed Selfie)
Usage: Frequently


The perfect solution for avoiding the blogger "toothless smile" - this pose has multiple uses and benefits: 

:: Excitement 
:: Surprise 
:: A Carefree spirit
:: Eliminates the squinty-eyes
:: Clearly a great post workout face
:: More opportunity for inappropriate emoji overlays
:: Works well with sunglasses
:: Great if you have no bottom teeth

I'm not sure when I began this pose nor when I plan to quit, but please tell me what other benefits you can think of for the open-mouthed selfie.

Ian is clearly not on board, but you should still link up with Kathy!

The fly catcher says "look at me I'm having fun so I'm yelling in my picture, woohoo". You look super cute, btw! Happy Confessions day! xoxo

I do the same thing! Not as often but my cousin who's 17 has all these poses she wants us to do for selfies and after I while I figure if I open my mouth it will look different to the usual grin and bear it... lol

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

that is freaking hilarious. It reminds me of the post I did about always having a side in pictures....when you put them all side by side like that it really is eye opening right?

Kristen said...

you're hilarious. i had noticed that you did this - i can't do it because i have horrible bottom teeth and they would be seen. not cute.

Haha I remember I had a short phase when I tried so hard to do the open-mouth pose, but in that phase, I got maybe one good picture... and it was with some friends plus an old friend's ex-bf so out of kindness I didn't use it as a profile pic on FB (but dammit it was a good!!)I think I should give the fly catcher another try though...!

Look at you and all your selfies! I would say that a benefit would be that it is a flattering look for you. :) My bottom teeth are better than my top teeth so I need to find the opposite of this!
