Just shut your mouth and do the fucking work, I want to say.
But I don’t.
Because teachers aren’t supposed to say those things.
They have to say, “Can we have a bit of quiet please? It’s too noisy in here, people can’t hear themselves think.”
Students don’t think that teachers are supposed to have normal feelings either, but we do.
We fall in love just like everyone else;
and sometimes with each other.
