My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #624

Wake up to my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #624 for July 23, 2018. The drawing is by Farley Katz.
"Just give me some time to decompose myself."

These captions won't ever see the light of day:
"You're just not my blood type."
"But what would your grandchildren think?"
"Look, my lying next to you was not my choice."
"That settles it. I'm going twelve feet under."
"I need to be alone with my thoughts."
"You know, this is a cutaway view. We can't really see each other."
"But how do I know you're a woman."
"Sorry, but I'm allergic."
"I'm a loner. I'm not playing hard-to-get."
"No way I am doing any digging in this suit."

July 30, 2018 Update:  The Finalists

August 13, 2018 Update:  I voted for the first caption, of course.

August 20, 2018 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist Joe Dator took us to a kite park. My caption just wouldn't fly. Soar into Contest #623.
