Groaner - 3.22 #sol20 Story Challenge

My dad never met a pun he could resist, so he came to mind yesterday morning.

I was catching up on the news online when the following thought occurred to me: Most of the students I teach are around age 12 or younger -- which means, at their next birthdays, they might accurately be referred to as quarantine-agers.

Some rites of passage we choose, and others choose us.

  1. There's been a few good puns floating around thanks to COVID-19: quarantainment, quarantinis (martinis imbibed while self-isolating), and now quarantinagers! Thanks for the spot of humor in this weird, weird week.

  2. I read something yesterday that described the newborns nine months from now as they age will be known as the quaranteens.

  3. Thank you for that. I laughed out loud. I don’t want to know what it says about me that I love puns.
