I usually wait to eat lunch until after student lunch is over and I’m back in my office. It’s almost always the same type of delicious sandwich that I’ve developed over my last few years of teaching, although it varies slightly as I get inspired by different items in the supermarket.
I know a student is spending too much time in my office when he looks at me at 11:45 and says, “Miss! What are you doing?!”
I look confused, and he explains, “You’re eating now! This is not your lunch time. You eat after we do.”
Then he looks closer and gets more upset. “And Miss! That’s not even the right sandwich! What is going on? Where did you even get that?!”
You need to not know me so well.
And I need to start switching up my lunch habits.
