I WOULD PREFER NOT TO…
Another memorable phrase from Herman Melville. This one is from "Bartleby the Scrivener," a short story that will not die, until reading literature is a "thing" of the past.
Today I would prefer not to write the Monday blog. Yet as promised, here are the three finalists for The New Yorker cartoon.
No doubt I have a bias. But I think these captions from several students rival if not beat two of the three finalists. 😊
What a fluke meeting here!
Leg of man chips have a crunchier bite.
What an odd place to catch dinner!
Are you stalking me?
Have you found the aisle with tuna fish? Where can I find sardines?

Just one more bite, Ahab.
Go ahead! Make my day.
I never finished the book!
Next week: Ah, humanity: Melville's timeless, brilliant, "Bartleby the Scrivener."
