Pedro Lugo of Malden, Massachusetts wasn't able to meet the man taking his daughter out on a date because he had to work, but he did the next best thing. He caught him off guard by interrogating him through his doorbell app.

"I was ready for the conversation," Pedro told WHDH. "I know he wasn't but, I know I was."

When his daughter Grace's date, Jared, rang the doorbell, Pedro began toying with the young man. "I get to see your face, but you don't get to see mine," he said jokingly.

He then peppered Jared with questions about their plans which included a dinner and a movie. Pedro asked what time his daughter will be home and he said, "Probably before 11."

"Oh, I heard 10:30. OK, that's good," Pedro responded.

"Make sure you treat her correctly because that is my first daughter," Pedro told Jared.

"You don't have to worry, sir," Jared replied.

The video was originally posted to Instagram by Pedro's son who shares the same name. "Here's the video of my sister's date picking her up and my dad answering the doorbell and just watching them 'meet' each other for the first time," he captioned the video.

At the end of the doorbell video, Pedro can be heard telling his son to take down Jared's license plate number. The younger Lugo said that Jared "loved every minute of it," noting that his dad is a "big prankster."

No word yet on whether Jared got Grace home before 10:30 pm or not. But rest assured, if he didn't, he'd hear about it from her father.


Davina Agudelo was born in Miami, Florida, but she grew up in Medellín, Colombia.

"I am so grateful for my upbringing in Colombia, surrounded by mountains and mango trees, and for my Colombian family," Agudelo says. "Colombia is the place where I learned what's truly essential in life." It's also where she found her passion for the arts.

While she was growing up, Colombia was going through a violent drug war, and Agudelo turned to literature, theater, singing, and creative writing as a refuge. "Journaling became a sacred practice, where I could leave on the page my dreams & longings as well as my joy and sadness," she says. "During those years, poetry came to me naturally. My grandfather was a poet and though I never met him, maybe there is a little bit of his love for poetry within me."

In 1998, when she left her home and everyone she loved and moved to California, the arts continued to be her solace and comfort. She got her bachelor's degree in theater arts before getting certified in journalism at UCLA. It was there she realized the need to create a media platform that highlighted the positive contributions of LatinX in the US.

"I know the power that storytelling and writing our own stories have and how creative writing can aid us in our own transformation."

In 2012, she started Alegría Magazine and it was a great success. Later, she refurbished a van into a mobile bookstore to celebrate Latin American and LatinX indie authors and poets, while also encouraging children's reading and writing in low-income communities across Southern California.

Veteran Chicago radio personality "Ramblin' Ray" Stevens was driving in his car two weeks ago when he passed Braxton Mayes, 20, several times.

"I was on my way home from work Friday and saw a young man walking down Kirk Road," Stevens later recalled. "I dropped my friend off at the studio I work out of and headed home. This young man was still walking. So I drove around the block and asked him if he needed a ride."

"In our town, we help people out," Stevens said.
