What would happen, perchance to dream:

Scene: after a premiere that I’ve somehow been invited to, during a meet-and-greet. 

Lupita: Hello, [Government Name]. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Thank you so much for your support.

Me: Your elegance, talent, and grace are inspiriring, Ms. Nyong’o.

Lupita: Oh, please call me Lupita. And thank you so much!

The End.

Now: what would actually happen in real life:

Lupita: Hello, [Government Name]. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Thank you so much for your supp–oh, dear. Someone call a paramedic. The poor woman has fainted.

The Real End.

Happy Monday, dear reader. Onwards and upwards…
