09:01 Lindsay’s finally made an impact with her class.
“Miss. Why are you wearing dresses now?”
“They don’t have waistbands.”
10:46 Lindsay spies a child in the doorway with their back to her. The temptation to skittle them with her office chair is overwhelming.
13:38 Lindsay is talking about marine food chains.
“Miss. I once saw a Doctor Mentry.”
“What was wrong with you?”
“So why did you go and see Doctor Mentry.”
“I didn’t go. I watched one on the telly about fish. I think it was David Attenborough.”
14:23 Microsoft Teams sends a message about amplifying every student’s voice. What?! Lindsay wants to shit the buggers up.
14:25 For some reason, Lindsay’s phone is now auto correcting ‘shut’ to ‘shit’. She’d better be careful when she types duck.
16:03 Lindsay immediately regrets not turning off her camera during a meeting. She could have still listened and found better things to do, like her class did during her lessons.
17:21 Lindsay announces loudly that she’s home, like a triumphant warrior after a battle. To be fair, today has been one long fight after another. Lesson, she means one long rewarding lesson after another.
17:23 Joel decides that he wants to converse.
“My foot still hurts. And my knee hurts. And I’ve a Biology test in nine days. And I might go for a walk.”
“Can you wait till I’m off the toilet?”
19:02 Joel tries to sneak an alcoholic drink upstairs.
“Joel. Fetch that back.”
“It’s a school night.”
“So why are you opening it?”
“Because it’s a school night!”
