Ever updated your Twitter to say "eating a bowl of cereal RN" and been morbidly terrified that nobody believed you? Well now that there's a selfie spoon stick, you can finally start sleeping again at night knowing that your insatiable Twitter audience (read: your mom) has all the proof they need! The selfie spoon is real, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch just gave us a taste of the ~future~.
For those of you who didn't just spend 15 minutes publicly taking selfies with a spoon in the office break room, allow me to explain how this technology works: Like any normal selfie stick, you connect your phone to the end of it, point it at your face, and show off your mad selfie game. The spoon even comes with a bluetooth shutter so you can make your camera take pictures without touching it, like voodoo. (I've been informed that this is how modern technology works, but I am still stuck in 2003 camera-wise, so forgive me.) Then, like the true multitasking Millennial master you are, you can proceed to take selfies and get your grub on at the same time.
Here are all the steps to mastering for first cereal selfie:
1. Look Existentially Confused As You Catch Up To 15 Years Of Modern Technology
It is a literal miracle I can even set my alarm when I go to bed at night. Unsurprisingly, I'm a selfie stick virgin. What even is an internet.
2. Enlist The Help Of Your Adorable Co-Worker
This is Jenny, everyone! Or ... this is the side of Jenny's face. The rest of her is pretty cute, too, but because I am terrible at everything, now you'll never know.
3. Become Office Laughingstock
Hi, mom! Workin' hard.
4. SUCCEED AT THE THING YOU WERE CLEARLY BORN TO DO
THIS IS MY CALLING. I AM GOING TO BE A PROFESSIONAL SPOON SELFIE TAKER, I CALLED DIBS, I WAS PUT ON THIS EARTH TO FULFILL THIS DESTINY AND EVERYONE ELSE CAN GO HOME.
But hey, don't be intimidated. Just because I'm a baller doesn't mean you shouldn't try it for yourself. You can get your own selfie spoon fo' free — you just have to pay shipping and handling. They appear to be sold out for today, but hey, there's always tomorrow. You have your whole life to live-tweet your breakfast. Seize the selfie. SEIZE THE DAY.
