So I shared this story with a friend and she said that is was totally blog worthy and I needed to put it on here.

So Yesterday I ran to the Murray library during lunch to pick up a book or two to read over the weekend. I was walking around for a while and as I was getting ready to leave a gentleman at a table asked in halting English if I could help him for a moment. I answered yes, of course. He said that he needed to practice his pronouncation of words and good I tell him if they were right or not. So of course I did. I ended up sitting with him for about a half hour, and we ended up talking about different things. He is from Brazil and has been in Utah for a few months, and is going to school daily to improve his English. I told him it was nice to meet him and that I needed to head back to work. His name is Wilton. When I told him I needed to go he told me that he is at the library most days and that I should come back and see him. I smiled and headed to check out my books. As I got in my car and put it into reverse I noticed that he had come outside and was walking toward me. So I rolled down my window and he asked me if "I like movie". I told him yes I like movies and he asked me if I would go and see one with him. I told him I was busy this weekend but we exchanged numbers and we are going to go see a movie next week.

So I can officially say that I have now been picked up at the library :)
