Adrienne:  Miguel, you’ll never believe what happened to me today.

Migs:  What happened?

Adrienne:  Well, I was walking to class and there was this guy standing outside of my classroom who’s talking to a bunch of other guys, and as I walked by, he just stopped the conversation and his eyes followed me all the way into my classroom.

Migs:  That’s really weird.

Adrienne:  Yeah, but it gets better. So I go to class, I unpack, I’m paying attention, the teacher’s talking, he comes into my classroom, comes down, hands me a note that tells me that he thinks I have a beautiful smile and that he hopes to see me later.

Migs:  Wow, that’s kind of crazy. But it must be flattering.

Adrienne:  It’s sort of flattering – flattering up until the point when you go outside and he’s waiting for you outside of your classroom and you have to have people around you so he can’t get to you and talk to you.

Migs:  Oh, that’s really creepy. What are you going to do?

Adrienne:  I don’t know. What should I do?

Migs:  I don’t know. Do you want me to come down and kick his ass or something?

Adrienne:  Nah, I’m a big girl. I can take care of myself.

Migs:  Alright.

Have you ever had this happen to you? It can be nice when someone tells you that you’re attractive. But it can be scary if the person makes you feel uncomfortable. It sounds like the guy who likes Adrienne is a little too aggressive. This conversation doesn’t have a lot of slang, but it’s a good one to listen to. Adrienne speaks a little fast, but she speaks very clearly. Hope you like it! Until next time,—Doc
