…You jokingly reference historical events in conversation and wait for the laughs….

No? Not that either? Sigh.
2. When you read an historical novel and there is a very clear research mistake that would have taken a simple Google search to fix and now it is glaring and keeps showing up and you can’t unnotice it.
You occasionally wonder what you would be like, or how different you would be, if you were a lady in a different time period….
….And then you remember how much you, as a lady, really enjoy being able to lounge around in your pyjamas with Cheeto dust on your shirt. And that, if you gave zero shits on a particular day, could wear that while trudging into a liquor store. Not that I’ve ever done that, or anything.
