There are inherent quirks of being married to an educator. Like, when I try to get my husband’s attention, I yell stuff like: “ONE TWO THREE, ALL EYES ON ME.” It’s only fair since he forces me listen to stories about AP Statistics…
Pile on a pandemic, though, and those previously perceived teacher quirks quickly turn into situations that make you question your loved one’s sanity. A few signs that your teacher-spouse is losing it:
They’ve rearranged their classroom and your living room furniture in accordance with COVID social distancing precautions.
You catch them live-streaming every-day activities, like brushing their teeth and cutting fruit, to an imaginary audience: “I am now slicing the apple. Can everyone see the apple?”
Their extensive face mask collection now requires its own shelf in the closet.
