Sofia winced as she drained the whiskey glass and set it down heavily on the bar in front of her.
"Come on, Jim," she sighed at the cameraman slumped on the stool beside her, "The boss will kill us if we don't cover the fair, who knows, maybe a bull will get loose at the livestock sale this year and maul some onlookers."
So I imagine started the day of WNEP-TV's Sofia Ojeda, as she headed to cover the Wayne County Fair in Pennsylvania.
Little did she know however that she would stumble upon perhaps the greatest child interviewee of all time (arguably even better than I like turtles kid), with little Noah Ritter taking the mic and giving a wonderfully magnetic summary of the fair's events.
Utilising the word 'apparently' like only a child who just discovered how to use a new word can, Noah gave an account of the scariness of the super slide along with an insight into how hard it is being a kid and having to watch your grandad's stupid shows all the damn time.
Apparently this was Noah's first time on live TV, as he kept reiterating, but he could have fooled us, the kid is a natural.
