Stranger Shout Out

Dear Stranger:

I’ve never seen you at the ‘brary before. (Or maybe I have. I really see a lot of people here.)

You seemed really nice when you came up to the reference desk. You did!

And I’m sorry I was a little distracted when you approached my desk the second time. I was checking over a book order. My head was a little bit up my ass. It happens.

I’m also sorry that I didn’t hear what you said.

Asking “are you single?” is probably not something that you wanted to do twice.

Or maybe it’s just something that I wouldn’t want to do twice. You’re obviously a little less shy than me, being that you added on “I just think you’re extremely beautiful” the second time. And told me that you were sorry for making me blush.

I totally blushed.

I am such a blusher.

(Do you not grow out of blushing?)

Thank you for the flattery. That sort of thing never happens to me. Guys don't march up to me and tell me that I am beautiful; strangers don't ask me on dates.

I can't go out with a patron. But you absolutely made my day.

May the next girl you approach be The One.

1. Have you read Time Traveler's Wife? 2. Why can't you date a patron. They're not your student! 3. A better reason would be because of the Coach.

I have not read The Time Traveler's Wife. I saw the movie, which I think wrecked the book for me.

I mean, I could date a patron but I wouldn't.

The Coach is...yeah. He's a factor, too, but I can't let him be. And, yes, I do realize that makes no sense. I guess what I'm trying to say is that he's the one who popped into my head when this guy asked me if I was single. But, he has yet to step up to the plate ...I can't hold out for him. (Even though I want to.)
