For All My Teacher Friends. . .

You know you're a teacher when:
  1. You can hear 25 voices behind you and know exactly who it belongs to.
  2. You get a secret thrill out of laminating something.
  3. You have 25 people that accidentally call you mom/dad at one time or another.
  4. You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty-five minutes.
  5. You've trained yourself to go to the bathroom at two distinct times of the day: lunch and conference period
  6. You start saving other people's trash, because most likely, you can use that toilet paper tube or plastic butter tub for something in the classroom.
  7. You believe the teachers' lounge should be equipped with a margarita machine.
  8. You want to slap the next person who says "Must be nice to work 7:15 to 3:15 and have summers off".
  9. You believe chocolate is a food group.
  10. You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
  11. You feel the urge to talk to strange children and correct their behavior when you are out in public.
  12. You are secretly addicted to hand sanitizer.

I am not a teacher, but I fully support #7 & #9.

Funny thing is my wife babysits my niece and she always takes long naps at our house (she is two). She also uses a lot of hand sanitizer. Well, the other day, we saw her after she put on some hand sanitizer deeply inhaling her still-wet hands. We think she gets high and then gets tired and takes a nap.

Yes, and yes to all of them. It's weird, but number 10 is certainly true!
