What’s Penelope Kitten up to today?
Penelope Kitten bops into the bedroom where Cynthia is getting ready to go out.
Cynthia (cheerfully): Hi Penelope.
penelope kitten (squeaking): hi hi.
Penelope lingers fretfully in the doorway.
Cynthia: What’s up, P?
penelope kitten: wanna take a selfie.
Cynthia: Sure! The camera’s over there. Go ahead.
Penelope Kitten shyly looks at the camera for a little bit and then sits by it dejectedly.
Cynthia: What’s going on, P?
penelope kitten: don’t know how.
Cynthia grabs the camera.
Cynthia: It’s easy. Just tilt the camera at your face, pose, and click the red button.
Cynthia: Why aren’t you looking at the camera?
penelope kitten: got scared.
penelope kitten: yeah yeah.
Cynthia: Of what?
penelope kitten: maybe i won’t look cute.
Cynthia: Everybody worries about that. It’s okay. If you don’t like it we’ll just delete it and take another one.
Let’s try again. Smile!
Cynthia clicks the red button. Penelope Kitten looks away.
penelope kitten: never mind.
Cynthia: C’mon. You look great.
penelope kitten: doesn’t matter. everyone will think i’m stupid for taking a selfie.
marcy said so.
Cynthia: Aw, Penelope. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to take a nice picture of yourself. We all want to be glamorous and cute. And I think you are super duper cute.
Cynthia clicks the red button again.
Cynthia: This is supposed to be fun, you know.
penelope kitten: it’s not. too much pressure.
i’m going to bug marcy instead.
selfie’s are stressful.
Penelope Kitten wanders off to find Marcy.
The next day.
Cynthia: Hey Penelope! I found a class at USC (University of Southern California) you might like to take.
penelope kitten (squeaking): oh yeah?
Cynthia: Yeah. It’s called #SelfieClass.

Marcy: Higher than a kite education.
