Dear Mario Diaz,
I hate it when I’m watching a live broadcast and there are some foolish people in the background, dancing around, excited to be on TV for 25 seconds. They’re waving and are usually on their cell phone calling their mom. I’m sure you know the type.
As a remote reporter, your job requires that you to tune out these yahoos and deliver your breaking news report to the people. Only this time, the random person in the background happened to be the queen on neo-soul, miss Erykah Badu. She goofed around then leaned in for a peck on the cheek (bold yes but she is a bold woman).
Your gut reaction was to shy away, as would mine have been. There’s no way you would have known who that was because you were focused on your job. It could have been a smelly bum (especially since you’re in New York City). But if you could go back and do that broadcast again, would you let her give you that kiss? Maybe she really liked you dude. It could have been the start of something special.
I guess we’ll never know.
