I’m On a Shirt

So one of my students made a shirt on cafepress or one of those other make-your-own-t’s sites with a quote attributed to me. It was rather surreal. The quote was an odd one too, one of my random, silly verbal gestures when I was trailing off discussing Desdemona’s thoughts as Othello spoke of her imminent death in Act V of Othello.  I argued that right up until the last minute, Desdemona was subservient to Othello, wanting to please him or placate him in any way.  “I mean, what was she thinking?  Something like ‘Can I make you some pancakes, dear?'”

“Can I make you some pancakes?” is now proudly worn on the back of one of my AP students.

Life is wonderfully weird sometimes.
