Ah, the power of social media.
After finally being able to catch up on Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s episode of Saturday Night Live, “Sexiest Teacher Alive” Nicholas Ferroni tweeted the composer and cast member Leslie Jones on whim to offer his positive review.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Nicholas, we definitely don’t mind giving you an intro.
Here he is on the first day of school:

…and here he is at the gym:
Though I teach History, I spend a lot of time discussing health and nutrition w/ my students. There is a major health epidemic with today’s youth, which is why I’m going to do a #HealthyHomework series/campaign to encourage teens to be more active and health conscious, as well as help parents take more of an active role in their children’s health. I’m going to share daily tips, workouts and exercises, as well as #HealthyHomework assignments for parents to do with their children. I will also have celebrity guests share their tips and favorite workouts to inspire children. It is more necessary now than ever before, and it will improve every aspect of their lives, especially self-esteem and academics. #fitspo #fitfam #fitspiration #fitness #fitnessmotivation #backtoschool #mondaymotivation #healthy #gym #fitspirationA photo posted by Nicholas Ferroni (@nicholasferroni) on Aug 15, 2016 at 8:22am PDT
Just one more for good measure:
On my 37th birthday (a day I share with Rose Byrne and J Lo), I can honestly say that I’m in better shape and in a better place now than I was at 27. #hardwork #ageisjustanumber #neverstoplearning #fitfam #gymlife #fitspiration #fitspo #fitness #fitnessmotivation #gymrat #gym #morethanmuscleA photo posted by Nicholas Ferroni (@nicholasferroni) on Jul 24, 2016 at 11:02am PDT
Anyway, it all started when the history teacher tweeted Lin and Leslie:
Finally got to watch @Lin_Manuel‘s EP of #SNL and I LOVED the teacher segment. And yes, @Lesdoggg, my students think that AXE smells good.

To which the 49-year-old boldly responded:
Fortunately, Ferroni is still on the market:
This is where the Hamilton star said what we were all thinking:
For good measure, Miz Jones asked:
And the rest of the flirty convo went something like this:
Then, Lin decided to chime back in with, again, exactly what we were thinking. And Nicholas decided to jump on the chance to phone a friend:
Everything was going so well until Leslie was tired of the chase:
Welp, it was fun while it lasted!
Maybe Nicholas decided to hit up the actress in her DMs… only time will tell!!!
