  1. Part 1 of the Zoom chat:

    18:57:14 From Teacher Lee : Are you able to hear me?
    18:59:52 From Teacher Lee : Make a bullet list of points to talk about.
    19:00:40 From Diana Yarmolinska : McWatt
    19:00:45 From Teacher Lee : McWatt (muk WATT)
    19:01:14 From Teacher Lee : Milo (MY lo)
    19:01:52 From Teacher Lee : Arfy
    19:02:26 From Teacher Lee : rejected his off
    19:02:33 From Teacher Lee : rejected his offer
    19:02:53 From Teacher Lee : soap flakes in the mashed potatoes
    19:03:16 From Teacher Lee : bedsheet
    19:06:06 From Diana Yarmolinska : Milo had rigid scruples that would not even allow him to borrow a package of pitted dates from the mess hall that day of McWatt’s stolen bedsheet, for the food at the mess hall was all still the property of the government.
    19:06:21 From Teacher Lee : strict morality
    19:06:50 From Teacher Lee : extremely honest
    19:07:00 From Vasanth : t
    19:08:50 From Teacher Lee : paroxysm = outburst of emotion, like a temper tantrum
    19:09:02 From Teacher Lee : an uneven mustache
    19:09:43 From Teacher Lee : Milo’s mustache was “off-colored”.
    19:10:30 From Vasanth : c
    19:10:36 From Teacher Lee : He was always tugging at his mustache.
    19:11:11 From Jörgen Olsson : twitching
    19:12:43 From Teacher Lee : twitch is a slight muscle spasm on the face usually
    19:13:12 From Vasanth : Milo’s mustache was unfortunate because the separated halves never matched. They were like Milo’s disunited eyes, which never looked at the same thing at the same time. Milo could see more things than most people, but he could see none of them too distinctly. In contrast to his reaction to news of the C.I.D. man, he learned with calm courage from Yossarian that Colonel Cathcart had raised the number of missions to fifty-five.
    19:13:26 From Teacher Lee : MUS tash
    19:13:38 From Diana Yarmolinska : Milo’s mustache was unfortunate because the separated halves never matched. They were like Milo’s disunited eyes, which never looked at the same thing at the same time. Milo could see more things than most people, but he could see none of them too distinctly.

    19:24:39 From Teacher Lee : promoted
    19:24:42 From Teacher Lee : up the ranks
    19:25:19 From Teacher Lee : they discriminated against him for not being a communist by giving him remote assignments
    19:26:16 From Diana Yarmolinska : Ordinarily, Yossarian’s pilot was McWatt, who, shaving in loud red, clean pajamas outside his tent each morning, was one of the odd, ironic, incomprehensible things surrounding Yossarian. McWatt was the craziest combat man of them all probably, because he was perfectly sane and still did not mind the war. He was a short-legged, wide-shouldered, smiling young soul who whistled bouncy show tunes continuously and turned over cards with sharp snaps when he dealt at blackjack or poker until Hungry Joe disintegrated into quaking despair finally beneath their cumulative impact and began ranting at him to stop snapping the cards.
    19:29:58 From Teacher Lee : cumulative = more and more incrementally

    19:34:06 From Teacher Lee : Milo went white
    19:34:17 From Vasanth : pale
    19:34:49 From Teacher Lee : This is Captain Yossarian, sir,” said Corporal Snark with a superior smirk. Corporal Snark was an intellectual snob who felt he was twenty years ahead of his time and did not enjoy cooking down to the masses. “He has a letter from Doc Daneeka entitling him to all the fruit and fruit juices he wants.” “What’s this?” cried out Yossarian, as Milo went white and began to sway. “This is Lieutenant Milo Minderbinder, sir,” said Corporal Snark with a derisive wink.
    19:36:17 From Teacher Lee : derisiver
    19:36:24 From Teacher Lee : deride , derisive
    19:36:43 From Teacher Lee : de RICE ive
