I hope I misheard.

Just a little while ago in the library’s Reference Room, where I was sitting in a chair reading and Patrick was manning the desk, I overheard a brief exchange.

Some woman with somewhat of an accent was saying to Patrick that her English wasn’t very good, and she was wondering if it would keep her from getting a date…

…and Patrick appeared to reply, in a rather odd tone, “Well, you could date me…”

Did I hear that right? Was Patrick flirting with this woman?

Of course, it was the library, where (most) people speak in rather hushed tones… so I’m hoping I somehow heard that one wrong.
