Lift with your legs, not with your back. Make sure you have good core engagement. Its really up to you exactly how you want to pick her up, but if it is any real distance - go with the fireman's carry.

How do you oversell this job, how do you even sell it at all? What do we even do I genuinely have no clue

Seriously. Neither my wife nor family can articulate at all what I do. But to their credit, I’ve never been good at articulating it to them either.

Do women even care about job titles and what you do?

If you care, you’ll likely meet women who also care

You care about her opinion of your job? lol

Not really. I care about the benefits of attraction.

You mean lie? I don’t think my wife would appreciate that

Yeah but she can explain it to her boyfriend while you are gone.

Tell them you’re a plumber.

I did say I was a crab fisherman once. But I had too many drinks and the jokes got pretty bad. That night was some decent memories but overall was not a success.

What are your school policies on classroom parties (ie: Halloween, Xmas, Valentines)? Given increases to absences, school closures & teacher planning days, any in-person instructional time with students is crucial. I think we should try to avoid activities that aren’t part of curriculum. The Vday party is set & will happen. I also don’t like that is held in morning instead of end of day. It’s held on a short day so combined with recess & lunch, 1 hr party is a lot to take away from class time.
