On Sunday night, a Los Angeles television reporter went on the air after the Grammy Awards and tried to do one of those kinds of reports that usually just drift in and out of your consciousness without affecting you much because there is usually nothing said of any importance. Well, the report of Serene Branson was different because you really could not understand much of what she was saying. I was going to write about it, but the preliminary word was that it was a stroke and I felt bad for her and did not think it would be fun to watch someone have a stroke replayed incessantly. Well, yesterday doctors said it was not a stroke, but a migraine. I know migraines can be debilitating, but I had no idea it could affect your speech like that. I mean the entire time the reporter is smiling although that could be something that is so ingrained into her that she could be dying while reporting and still be smiling. That seems to be a common affliction among local reporters.
“Yes, Ted, I have been hit by a car and I could possibly lose my life, but please notice that I am still smiling.”
Meanwhile, Serene is hoping that the video will not go viral. Umm, a little late for that considering it was played about a bazillion times just on Monday. Does everyone believe it was a migraine? I know they can be hard on people so please tell me if you have had one and did the same type of thing. Except for the smiling part of course.
