Oh HAPPY day!!!!!

At approximately 10:47am (I'm guessing here), Erinn and I were walking up the stairs from our biochem class and who do we spot?

The 6' 5", 210 pound guard/forward from Cote d'Ivoire. Yes, the man himself, Charles Abouo. And it didn't help that I did a double take and then Erinn and I both started pretty much staring at him, inconspicuously of course (yes, oxymoron intended), as we continued our walk out of the building. I wish I were an collegiate athlete. Yes, yes I do.

HELLO I love starting my mornings off like that.

But oh no, it got better: Bowling class, 1pm.

I arrive in a bit of a huff because I realize I have a lot to do this week. Upon entering the bowling alley I realize that our teacher has assigned us to groups for bowling tournament. Great, I think. I continue searching for my name and then the thought occurs: How cool would that be if Jimmer were in my group??? Nah.....

I approach a sheet of paper with my name.

And Jimmer's.

SWEEEEEEEEET!!!!!! Dream's come true. Not only did I want to graduate having taken a class with Jimmer, but once that happened, I promised I would bowl with him and I did.

I bowled with my basketball idol. DOES it get better? I profess that it does not. Well ok, I could, I don't know, actually be friends with the guy, but just float with me people.

So jealous! It will just have to suffice that I'm facebook friends with Jimmer. Love you! -Ashley

Yeah! We saw him! Not to mention the part where he turned around and looked at us while we were staring and I so obviously hurried and looked away... how embarrassing...
