So here’s a thing I’ve noticed recently - what is it with teachers’ names?

Evie loves reading and her teacher is called Mrs. English. Dave had an art teacher called Mr. Brush and a friend of mine’s home economics teacher was called Mrs. Oven.

I do not lie. Do these names exert some sort of gravitational pull on their owners, until, before they know it they are obeying their surnames??!!

Doesn’t always work though. I recently called up an electrician called D.C. Blaze (definitely made me hesitate). Though fittingly for a small boy obsessed with all things basic, Tom’s teacher is called Mrs. Sidebottom...
