There are a few places I would like to take a cool selfie: underneath a waterfall, on the bed of a room at Quebec’s Château Frontenac, and atop a mountain in Peru near where my dad grew up. But those are all attainable (someday, maybe). One that is not: the White House. Luckily, one woman did it for those of us who cannot!
A Redditor who goes by the username Chimps_Rnt_Monkeys posted a selfie to /r/FancyFollicles that was supposedly taken in the bathroom of the White House. Awesome? Hell yeah. Provable? Possibly. Dangerous? I mean, probably not, but as the top comment on her Reddit post says, “There is probably a camera or people behind that mirror.” And if that is true, they probably got a good giggle. Or I’m just paranoid and it’s just a mirror and stop thinking the traffic signals are telling you things, Sam.
Apparently, it was something she had been asked to do, as her post was titled, “As per request: Selfie in the White House Bathroom (x-post from r/fancyfollicles).” The Redditor was there because her “fiance was invited with a +1 to the Holiday Press Reception,” so her partner apparently works in the media. This could explain why she would subsequently delete the image from imgur, as getting hundreds of thousands of hits and thousands of comments on a mirror of yourself in the White House might attract attention at his job (and, obviously, her own).
Regardless, I think it’s a pretty awesome move. And on a completely different but still positive note, I also think that she just plain looks lovely. That dress is beautiful on her, her hair looks fantastic and her facial expression is just as “OMG” as mine would be had I been in the same position.
So, where in the world would you take a selfie if money and access were no object?
