Here’s an example of sensory issues.
We all know I detest masks and lockdowns. But there’s one aspect of COVIDiocy that I find irresistible. It’s the hand sanitizer.
I’m obsessed with hand sanitizer. I use it 6-7 times in class. Students must think I’m a germaphobe. But I don’t care about germs. If anything, I’m a germaphile. What I love is the cooling sensation on my hands. The classroom is hot, and putting sanitizer on my hands is primitive thermoregulation. It makes me feel sharper and more energetic.
Yes, yes, I know the darn sanitizer is carcinogenic. You probably don’t have sensory issues if you think this makes a difference.
