  6. Thank you for your humorous take on so much of life, Chris Farley! Skype? Zoom? FaceTime? I avoid them all if possible. A teacher friend has commented that Zoom can be distracting to students–focus on what they look like rather than the topic. And, Zoom is necessary for so much…like teaching ballet….

  8. That’s Hero Husband. While hanging on the phone or any of those zoomy meetings, he’s reshuffling his three hairs, pulling at his jumper, jumping from his chair – I wonder every time he’s going to the office that they take him back!!! Downside is that he occupies and lives literally in OUR SHARED office but I can no longer use it because it’s now HIS man cave…. 😉
