66. Selfie
A week later Mikey went to his first AA meeting.  Rather than hiding in the back of a speaker meeting, he went to a discussion.  At the end he asked what taking an inventory was all about.

The woman to his left said, "My mother would call it 'a good, hard, look at yourself.'  The difference is you don't take an inventory only after you've done something you shouldn't have. You take an inventory every day."

"People don't take inventories anymore," the man on his right said. "They take selfies. They're more interested in how they look than who they are."

Mikey thought the man was being a little harsh, but he got his point.

Today I will take an inventory before I take a single selfie.
