How Your Phone And Friend With Benefits Are The Same

Some days (see also: a lot of days) this whole blogging 5ish days a week thing can be quite the task. And by task I mean that there are days, like today, where coming up with a post idea is harder than taking down a shot of Jager without instantly projectile vomiting all over your friend's new shoes. Not that I've experienced that or anything. Anyways, typically when this happens, the post part not the Jager-shots-vom part, I complain to someone about. Today I complained to Sarah who then gave me a little pep talk, followed by a post idea, which I then turned into some ridiculous comparison which morphed a perfectly classy topic into an inappropriate one. Go figure.

Today, let's look at a few reasons why preferring to use your smart phone over a fancy DSLR camera is a lot like preferring a friend with benefits over a relationship. And yes, I'm totally serious right now.

1. Using your smart phone for photo purposes is easy. 
Just like that 2 am call you have on speed dial, all you have to do is push a button or two and you've got yourself a post-worthy photo. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am (or sir). When you commit to using your DSLR, or a relationship, you've got a lot more steps to walk through. Like figuring out how to work said new DSLR, or how to work your new boyfriend's brain. Same difference, or something.

2. Using your smart phone for photo purposes is fast.
No muss, no fuss. You don't have to go through all of the motions like you do with that DSLR, just like you don't have to go through all of the motions of a relationship when you're hanging out with your friend with benefits.

3. You're more comfortable with your smart phone. 
It's no secret that the majority of us treat our phones as if they are a fifth limb, so it's no wonder why we're all more comfortable using our phones. Just like that friend with benefits, you already know how to get the job done - if you catch my drift. Same thing with your phone and DSLR. Phone = friend with benefits. DSLR = new, untouched territory.

4. You know all of the tricks and secrets.
When it's time to edit your photo, or get to business, you already know all of your favorite filters (positions) and they're exactly how you like them. Basically, the trial and error thing doesn't exist and you know just what will make you happy... if you smell what I'm stepping in over here. Which I hope you are, promise it's not dog shit.

And there you have it, the way my sick and twisted mind compares things.
You're welcome. Go have yourself a great hump day. And I mean that in the most sick and twisted way possible, of course.

    I am a long time lurker and don't think that I have ever commented, but this was absolutely hilarious and soooo dead on. Your mind may be sick and twisted, but I think that is why so many of us read....just sayin!!!!

    i just watched bridesmaids on tv last night. this doesn't really have much to do with your post, other than the gif, but i thought you should know.

  8. September 25, 2013 at 12:17 PM

    Hahahaha. Pretty much. This is a perfect comparison. If I committed to my DSLR more then my photos would look a hell of a lot better.
