'The vain one'

I’m sure you have one of these characters in your list of social media friends. Maybe even amongst your friends in real life. That friend which is overly conscious about her appearance. Which is checking her lipstick every 15 minutes and which is rearranging her hair locks on the same frequency as breathing. Her own reflection is a continuously fascination.

It is -by the way- not always a female, there are good examples of males out there too. If a camera is around, he is taking good care that at least one of his biceps is accidentally hanging around too. With an accuracy like a second nature.

I don’t know if they are just insecure. Or if they are only
happy with their life if other people are applauding. Or if they are genuinely convinced they have more sparks to polish than their friends. Basically they have the same pack of parts like everyone else. Like the others you can see in the background.
