ME NOT ME: Is This Photo A Lie? - LBF

The most amazing thing happened to me the other day: I discovered the filter app on Snapchat. (I talked about it in my last blog post.)

Since then, I've been like a Kardashian on Krack - taking filtered selfies and admiring my "Me Not Me" Avatar.

As Brian Bell said: "She's like your twin sister - the one who takes care of herself and doesn't drink all the time." Thanks, Brian.

In the midst of all this obsessive filtering, I sent my husband a Me Not Me photo, looking like a younger, fitter, better version of myself. His response? He posted it on Facebook.

Exhibit A:

MENOTME

But is this photo a LIE? I felt I had to clarify WHY I looked like a better version of me. But if I didn't say anything, isn't that misleading?

Here's an example of a before and after. You tell me: Is photo filtering a "liar, liar pants on fire" move?
