It’s weird when you know someone for four years and each day of those four years you addressed that person as Mr. or Mrs. Teacher. And yet, you now call them by their first name. However, when you haven’t seen a teacher in 6 years, who you idolized in high school, and he is part of the group of teacher friends you hang out with, it’s weird call him by his first name for the first time. Thankfully, the home brew helped the awkwardness.
Now I just need to prepare myself when my former students call me by my first name.
