You know how the day dream goes: you’re at your desk. It’s 2:26pm and you’re feeling peckish. It’s too close to lunch to make yet another trip to your office snack draw, yet the niggling pain from your lackluster capsicum-filled salad just won’t subside.
And so your mind wanders. Imagine if I won the lottery, you think, I could… buy a house! Spend a year abroad! Retire early! Build an actual, edible gingerbread house and then eat it! Then your mind snaps back and you realise the likelihood of you winning lottery and retiring early would be much higher if you could actually afford to buy a lotto ticket this week. Yeah, that would help.
Perhaps in the midst of your day dream you imagined shacking up with your celebrity crush. Luring them with wealth and securing their love with your fantastic personality.
This wasn’t just a day dream for Brazillian woman Ana Paola Diniz, who this week secured a kiss with her celebrity crush Ricky Martin, all for the small price of $90,000 AUD.
Yep, you read that correctly. Ninety-thousand dollars. For a kiss. With a man who is openly gay.
The kiss, which lasted for a measly three seconds and took place in front of hundreds of on-lookers, was acquired by Diniz at a charity event in Sao Paulo, Brazil to raise funds for the Foundation for AIDs research.
