With the year 2016 promising to go down as one of the worst in our lifetime, and 2017 slated to be potentially worse, people are desperate for any sort of joy or optimism. They need to be shown that not all is darkness and desperation.
They need a hero like Sandy Ploy of Milwaukee, such a monumental fan of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit that when she encountered a Christmas selfie of Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, who played high-chemistry partners on the series, she had to join in on the festivities. With a little help from Photoshop.
"Any self-respecting ‘Special Victims Unit’ fan had their heart skip a beat the other day when Chris Meloni posted his selfie with Mariska Hargitay," Sandy told BuzzFeed. "They looked GREAT. They looked SO HAPPY to be together.”
And just like that, another star was born.
And it seems Sandy is taking her newfound fame comfortably in stride.
Merry Christmas to you, Sandy—a woman who could not be more pure of heart.
