CaroleCarole Mikita is a news reporter in Salt Lake City, Utah. She’s been a reporter since 1979, the year I was born. I used to love watching the news as a kid because I had this weird school boy crush on her. What’s super ironic about this crush is that 1) I’m a raging homo, and 2) she mostly covers religion – which I don’t really follow/subscribe to anymore.
As I was walking to Starbucks near The Gallivan Center in February 2012, I saw her getting ready to do a story in front of the ice skating rink. I quickly pulled out my phone and snapped this pic:
I ran into Starbucks and grabbed my filthy chai. While I was waiting for my drink to be made, I realized that I would regret it if I didn’t go out and give her a gigantic hug. So I went out, interrupted her news story, gave her that giant hug and told her how I had the biggest crush on her while growing up. She wasn’t quite sure what a gilf was, but she still blushed and said that she was super flattered. Here’s a cute pic of the two of us:
Oh Carole, I still heart your face!
