The 10 Cocktails Teachers Wish They Had While Grading Papers — Teacher Talk

Being a teacher doesn't seem like a job for the weak. I straight-up salute the people who spend hours educating our youth because I couldn't do it. It's a lot of time, energy, money, sweat, and patience on children (or young adults) who aren't even yours. I can't even imagine having that kind of mental and emotional stamina.

What I can imagine is desperately dreaming of a cocktail while working those arduous after-school hours grading papers, supervising detention, or cleaning up after the little rugrats. After all, a little Mai Tai makes all geometry look better, doesn't it?

Here are 10 cocktails teachers I spoke to swore they would love more than that damn red apple your kid keeps bringing them.

Note: This is a tongue-in-cheek list. We have the utmost respect for teachers and while we are sure they would love to have a quick sip while grading papers, we are relatively sure none of them actually indulge.

A Giant Watermelon Towel Is What Your Summer Has Been Missing — Shopping

Your Instagram feed is probably full of photos of pool floats that look like food, no? (Is that why they call it a feed?) Perhaps you've even posted a few of those pics yourself? We love an oversized slice of pizza, so we can't blame you or anyone else. In fact, we can only encourage you to keep the kitsch going with some equally cute food-themed towels for when you're on dry land.
