Selfie-game on point

Rotterdam Centraal – Utrecht Centraal

Let’s give it a try. He holds his phone up the way he sees his grandsons do it. The screen remains dark. Settings maybe? Ah there it is, the inside camera needs turning on. Again. Now he sees himself looking back, a close resemblance to his father. White hair and a cheerful, wrinkled Japanese face. He moves his head to find the angle in which his bald spot is least noticeable. Damn, his arm is too short. How do those boys do it? He rummages through his bag to find his selfie-rod. Skillfully he attaches his phone and shoves it upwards. That’s better. Still shiny, but good enough for Facebook. He nudges his wife. Cheese!
