After my rather explosive post the other week about how – gasp – Instagram doesn’t always depict real life, you might be under the impression that I don’t like Instagram. I do. I like it just fine. For instance it’s the perfect way to avoid countless less desirable activities. Like emptying the dishwasher. Or laundry. Or bathing, eating and sleeping.
I found what might be a dream couch for me on Instagram (you’ll see it in a photo below). I learned about where to source good quality Blue Laced Wyandotte chickens near me through Instagram. And I’ll always be grateful to Instagram for introducing me to the latest trends like allowing your shirt to almost, but not quite fall off super-casually, on purpose in photos.
This is a screen grab from when I demonstrated this crucial Instagram move in my Instagram stories.
So no, I don’t dislike Instagram. I just sometimes get angry at it when it makes me accidentally roll my eyes so hard that I end up needing eyeball reattachment surgery. Which I don’t make it to because I’m busy wasting time on Instagram with one eyeball hanging so low out of its socket that it’s bouncing on my cheek.
Which may soon become a trending Instagram look.
