This young girl from church posted a pic of her … um… derrière on Instagram and Facebook.
(I’m talking about a girl who is over 18 here, by the way. I’m not calling her mother. I know that was your first thought. )
I was surprised to see said posterior on social media for all to see, of course. I mentioned it to my own daughter GG, age 15.
She was unfazed. “All the girls post their butts on Instagram, mom,” she said. “It’s like, a thing.”
I was shocked. “You’d better not do that,” I said sternly, realizing of course that what moms say often makes no difference to teenage girls. Still, I had to make the attempt.
She rolled her eyes. “Relax. I won’t. I don’t even have one.”
“What?” I said. “You don’t have a butt? This is your assurance to me?”
“No, mom,” she said patiently. “I don’t have an Instagram. So my butt is safe.”
