One of those Days

This isn't from today, but it is my most
recent SB picture.
Today was one of those days... where I just felt the need to go to Starbucks.  Now, since I do not drink coffee, it was not for the caffeine!  And, since I have a lot of prep for various classes and such this week, it was not because I had time to kill.  I just felt I needed to go.

So, I went.

Melissa was there for a few minutes, too, so we had a nice chat.  Then, after she left, I pulled out my stuff and started studying.  After a while I realized that the lady next to me,with a comfortable personal-space-table in between, was studying English.

Well, if someone is studying English and a native English speaker is sitting a table away, shouldn't a conversation ensue?!  Since she is Japanese, I thought she might be a little shy about striking up a conversation and did the starting myself.

And, she was receptive to conversing!

We had a nice conversation in English and Japanese.  She decided that although she is Buddhist, it would be okay to come to our church for English class.  Since she likes baking and has a daughter the same age as my baking student, I suggested she join us.  She put it on her calendar!

We exchanged names and email addresses.

I guess that is why I felt the need to go to Starbucks today...
