From the Professor’s Journeys

I looked about, trying to decide whether the auditorium held 1300 people or 1500 people. There is a big difference–at least, to this professor there is.

Whatever the number, though, this professor was fairly certain that the place would be filled to the brim in another five minutes or so.

Gen. T. Brishwasher was to speak today, and the professor was slightly interested. I was more interested in the spectacle of the people, I suppose.

I was still looking about when I was tapped upon the shoulder.

The professor spun around.

Standing behind me was one of Mr. Ratherquite’s Ladies–the red-haired one.

“Sir,” she squeaked, “why are you turning your head about like a loon?”

“A loon?” I must say, her statement depressed the professor a bit. A loon isn’t a favorable comparison.

She nodded and giggled.

I decided to ignore the comment. “I’m trying to decide how many people this auditorium holds.”

“1400.”

“1400?” I asked. “How can you be so sure?”

“Because my Mr. Ratherquite told me.”

I might have been a bit flustered at this point. You see, I was quite positive that the number was either 1300 or 1500. 1400 just didn’t fit into the equation.

“Now, sir,” the red-haired lady continued. “Kindly point me in the direction of my Mr. Ratherquite.”

“How am I supposed to know where he is?”

Her eyes opened very widely in disbelief. “How couldn’t you know where someone as important as Mr. Ratherquite is?”

“How couldn’t you?”

She grew red in the face. “You’re rude and crude–”

“I know  the routine. You might as well save it. If I was you, I’d look for Mr. Ratherquite in the facilities.”

And then I turned away.

    A loon? Not the first thing I’d think of with turning heads… not a favorable comparison indeed.

    I would’ve thought 1500 too. It sounds better than 1400.

    A fair question. How could she not know Mr. R’s whereabouts and expect the professor to know? She was mean to say the professor is rude and crude because you most certainly weren’t.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke December 30, 2013 at 15:08

      Not at all!

      It does. More even–if that makes sense. :lol:

      Thank you, Hazy! I thought she was rather feisty!

  2. 3 MissTiffany December 13, 2013 at 21:50

    She was rather rude. Though I must ask, how could 1400 not enter in the equation for the Professor?

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:32

      Well…that’s a good question. I suppose because it’s not a professorish number?

      • 5 MissTiffany December 14, 2013 at 19:20

        Really? And what makes a number a professorish one?

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:55

        It has to agree with the professorish brain.

      • 7 MissTiffany December 17, 2013 at 01:14

        I see. (sort of).

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 13:37

        That’s the way!

  3. 9 L. Marie December 11, 2013 at 13:55

    I didn’t know the ladies spoke. I must say this one was rude to you. No wonder Mr. Ratherquite and the ladies go where they’re not invited.

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:06

      Definitely! Mr. R keeps them under control, I think.

  4. 11 portergirl December 11, 2013 at 13:27

    I think perhaps you should have spanked her. Sometimes one just has to make a scene. I do not think you were too rude. Some people just don’t understand politeness!

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:05

      :lol: I should have! Even better, you might have done if for me.

      • 13 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:29

        I pity the fool who tries to spank me…

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:46

        I wouldn’t try, dadblameit!

      • 15 portergirl December 12, 2013 at 13:59

        I am no stranger to administering punishment, it is true. If another spanking situation arises, do not hesitate to call me in, Professor ;)

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:48

        :lol: I will! And thanks for the offer of services. Quite a few persons I know could use a spanking!

      • 17 portergirl December 13, 2013 at 12:40

        Of that, I have no doubt ;)

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:47

        :D

  5. 19 Painting Pundit December 11, 2013 at 05:18

    I felt sorry for the lady but she did set herself up for that one.

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:03

      I think she did. Some ladies can be a bit pompous…

      • 21 Painting Pundit December 11, 2013 at 18:30

        Some guys too

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 21:46

        Definitely, definitely. (Mr. R is)

  6. 23 The Dancing Rider December 10, 2013 at 23:20

    L. O. L. Way to go, professor, with that remark! And, guess what? Mr. R. probably WAS in there!

    • 24 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:10

      :lol: Thanks, DR! He actually was. A couple of rows in front of me. I know it was mean, but…they annoy me so badly!

      • 25 The Dancing Rider December 11, 2013 at 14:35

        You are nicer than I. I could feel a good, decent slap coming on, reading that! ;-)

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:08

        Yes! I didn’t even think of that, though. But if she had been a he…maybe a punch!

      • 27 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:30

        There’s a good idea, Professor. The ladies get into a cat fight…

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:46

        Now that would be fun to see.

  7. 29 Crystal Lynn B. December 10, 2013 at 21:32

    Wow, that lady was really stuck up. That was funny though how he just sort of shot her down ha ha! I loved it!

    • 30 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:02

      Thanks! She was quite mean, wasn’t she? Was the professor too rude?

      • 31 Crystal Lynn B. December 11, 2013 at 00:24

        Nope, not at all! I thought he handled it nicely.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:00

        Thank you! Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m too wicked.

  8. 33 Anja December 10, 2013 at 18:36

    Why 1300 or 1500

    • 34 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:04

      I was just supposing. A professorish guess.

      • 35 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:38

        Sounds like the professor’s version of my “ish.” As in, I will meet you at ten- ish.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:07

        I guess that could be it. Yes, that’s it. (Did I tell you that I’m Hector of Troy?)

      • 37 Anja December 10, 2013 at 22:39

        and yet 1400 irks you?

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:08

        Horribly. Why is this would you say?

      • 39 Anja December 11, 2013 at 01:49

        Maybe it is just the number. You prefer the odd digits?

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:01

        Even actually.

      • 41 Anja December 11, 2013 at 18:25

        So then I would think you’d like 1400. I like odd numbers.

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 21:45

        Then you should like 1300.

      • 43 Anja December 11, 2013 at 22:34

        I never said I didn’t like 1300. Although I would prefer 1100

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:38

        I’d prefer 1200.

      • 45 Anja December 12, 2013 at 18:34

        That’s too…noon sounding

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 23:33

        :lol: You’re right. But I like lunch time.

      • 47 Anja December 13, 2013 at 02:48

        My lunchtime is 1…so 1100 is better once again

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:43

        Isn’t 1200 better since it’s closer to lunch?

      • 49 Anja December 13, 2013 at 18:13

        No 1300 is my lunchtime :)

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:27

        Ah…………I see.

      • 51 Anja December 14, 2013 at 02:18

        So I am correct :)

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 02:50

        And I am corrector.

      • 53 Anja December 14, 2013 at 02:51

        Not sure that is a word.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 03:04

        It didn’t get underlined.

      • 55 Anja December 14, 2013 at 03:38

        Maybe I should have said…not the right word for how it was written?

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:45

        It was purely professorish.

      • 57 Anja December 15, 2013 at 21:47

        Ahhhh won’t argue with that

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:55

        :D

      • 59 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:31

        Seen any wooden horses lately?

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:46

        No, why?

  9. 61 bardictale December 10, 2013 at 17:09

    A loon? My, isn’t she a rude one.

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:03

      That was rude. I needed my magazine, didn’t I?

      • 63 bardictale December 10, 2013 at 18:16

        Indeed you did. You should carry one at all times.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:03

        You’re right. A pity I didn’t have it with me!

      • 65 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:39

        A rolled up magazine is always handy to have around in lieu of a big can.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:07

        Or iron stick. I should carry an iron stick.

      • 67 Susan P December 11, 2013 at 12:43

        Remember to walk softly.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:03

        It’s hard to when you wear boots.

      • 69 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:32

        How did the Native Americans manage?

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:46

        They wore sandals–like Darby.

      • 71 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 20:17

        Nuh-uh.

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 23:35

        Yes, yes ,yes, dadblameit!

      • 73 Susan P December 13, 2013 at 01:19

        Boots. Lace-up boots.

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:40

        Maybe…

      • 75 Susan P December 13, 2013 at 16:04

        May bees don’t fly in December.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:23

        That’s good. I’d hate to get stung.

      • 77 Susan P December 14, 2013 at 01:43

        Are you in danger of it?

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 02:47

        I think I’m always in danger, since I’ve never been stung.

      • 79 Susan P December 14, 2013 at 13:48

        My Elisabeth is very allergic to bee stings. But you may well be in danger from something or other. Not from me, of course…….

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:52

        Lizio? What would you say?

      • 81 Susan P December 15, 2013 at 22:17

        What is a Lizio? btw, you made my Elisabeth smile.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 13:46

        That’s just my professorish nickname for anyone called Elisabeth, I suppose. She made me smile too!

      • 83 Susan P December 16, 2013 at 14:44

        That’s what I think. She’s been making me smile for a lot of years.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 16:29

        :D

      • 85 Susan P December 16, 2013 at 19:17

        :)

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 19:38

        :cool:

  10. 87 technophile9 December 10, 2013 at 16:40

    Hmm, I think this is the first time one of Mr. Ratherquite’s ladies has said something other than *giggle*

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:03

      You’re right. It is. Annoying creatures, aren’t they?

      • 89 technophile9 December 10, 2013 at 18:36

        So far it seems so, although since I haven’t heard much of them, I can’t really tell. ;)

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:04

        Mr. R isn’t half bad, though.

      • 91 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:39

        They probably would like a little more dialogue. Just sayin’.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:08

        You mean, in the story?

      • 93 Susan P December 11, 2013 at 12:43

        The ladies would enjoy having a little more dialogue.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:03

        Mr. R’s ladies?

      • 95 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:33

        Yes, Mr. R’s ladies.

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:46

        I think you could be right.

      • 97 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 20:18

        I am right. And sweet.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 23:36

        You may be sweet but the professor isn’t.

      • 99 Susan P December 13, 2013 at 01:20

        You’d have to talk to my son-in-law about that. And, good luck.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:42

        Hmm…

      • 101 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:34

        Well, then what kind of manner.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:47

        I’m not really sure. You tell me. :D

      • 103 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 20:18

        Dadblameit – there you go putting it on me again. ;)

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 23:36

        :D Spicy, huh?

      • 105 Susan P December 13, 2013 at 01:21

        hot pepper spicy or cinnamon spicey?

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:43

        Professor spicy!

      • 107 Susan P December 13, 2013 at 16:03

        We are all in trouble now.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:23

        Oh yes. Especially since I’m feeling like Hector at the moment.

      • 109 Susan P December 14, 2013 at 01:43

        Bring it ‘Ector.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 02:47

        :D I’m about to run riot.

      • 111 Susan P December 14, 2013 at 13:47

        Get someone to put it on video – this I want to see.

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:51

        It would give you nightmares.

      • 113 Susan P December 15, 2013 at 22:18

        If Stephen King doesn’t give me nightmares, what makes you think you running riot would?

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 13:46

        :lol: :lol: How perfectly, low down, wicked. I suppose it gets bloody when Hector runs riot. I think he killed someone named Patrocules–or something like that.

      • 115 Susan P December 16, 2013 at 14:43

        Did you mean Protesilaus? The first Greek to set foot on Trojan soil who was killed because of a prophecy?

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 16:29

        Is he the one who stole Achilles armor?

      • 117 Susan P December 16, 2013 at 19:17

        That was Patroclus.

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 19:37

        Yes, that’s the one! Hector licked him.

      • 119 Susan P December 16, 2013 at 21:44

        :D

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 13:32

        :cool:

  11. 121 Jackie December 10, 2013 at 16:17

    What an off-putting and annoying woman! Bleck.

    • 122 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:03

      Definitely! Needed a spanking, I think.

      • 123 Jackie December 10, 2013 at 19:53

        Personally speaking I don’t think it’s worth the effort.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:05

        You’re probably right. Imagine the mess the professor could get hiself into!

      • 125 Jackie December 10, 2013 at 20:10

        Indeed! :eek:

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 23:55

        But it would be fun…

      • 127 Jackie December 11, 2013 at 00:03

        Whatever you say Professor! :-D

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:10

        :D You make me feel professorish–which is good.

      • 129 Jackie December 11, 2013 at 00:22

        Awesome! 8-)

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 17:59

        :cool:

      • 131 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:40

        Now then, Professor, mind your manners. Someone will start yelling abuse.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:08

        I don’t have manners.

      • 133 Susan P December 11, 2013 at 12:44

        Mannerisms then?

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:04

        Not sure about those either.

  12. 135 Debbie December 10, 2013 at 15:41

    Oh, boy, do I have questions today (maybe because I’m one of your newer readers??). Anyway: just how many ladies does Mr. R. have? And surely Mr. R. told this red-haired lady he was visiting the facilities? Are you friends with these people (and if so, why was the red-haired lady so critical?) And you completely skipped the part about the General’s speech. What was he talking about? Just how many people showed up? I’ve got questions; you, sir, have answers. Thanks!

    • 136 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:02

      No problem! Well, two Ladies follow him about quite regularly. The red-haired lady, and a corpulent lady with blond curls.

      He didn’t seem to. But I just made that up. :D

      No, we don’t get along too well–as you may have gathered. Mr. R and his ladies are pompous to say the least.

      Oh, he was talking about war, and why it’s good. Somewhat of a fool. I wasn’t really paying attention. I was studying.

      Well, the whole place was filled…so I guess 1400?

      Would you have went?

      • 137 Jazzy Couldren December 10, 2013 at 18:29

        Hey, War is good.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:04

        It’s manly, huh?

      • 139 Jazzy Couldren December 10, 2013 at 20:12

        Is you patronizing me?

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 23:55

        I don’t think so.

      • 141 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:41

        have went ???? *faints*

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:08

        Oh dear. What did I do?

        I have alerted the grammar nazi squad.

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:04

        You’ve turned this poor professor in…. :cry:

      • 145 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:42

        Pay him no attention, Jazzy – you are the manly man.

      • 146 Jazzy Couldren December 11, 2013 at 00:21

        Don’t worry, I’s won’t.

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 17:59

        *shakes head, but does not giggle*

  13. 148 ladycheetah7 December 10, 2013 at 15:36

    Well said sir. Couldn’t have ended the conversation any better.

    • 149 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 15:39

      I’m trying to imagine the lady entering the facilities…

      • 150 ladycheetah7 December 10, 2013 at 15:48

        Probably an ungodly sight. Lol.

      • 151 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 15:55

        Probably leave us blind, in fact.

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:02

        :lol: :lol: :lol:

      • 153 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:33

        Exactly.

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:04

        Such thoughts!

    • 155 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 18:00

      I wasn’t rude, was I, Lady?

      • 156 ladycheetah7 December 10, 2013 at 18:06

        IMO, Not at all.

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 20:03

        I’m glad to hear that! Some of the PF think I was wicked.

  14. 158 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 15:31

    Better you than me hanging out at an economics symposium. Did you happen to see Mr. P in the auditorium?

    • 159 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:58

      Yes. In fact, he was a couple rows in front of me.

  15. 160 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 10, 2013 at 15:31

    I have too many questions.

    I don’t like her, professor. She has no idea what she’s missing out on.
    (I do love love love that we got to meet Mr. R’S red head, but she’s stupid.) Doesn’t she know that sitting with you would have offered much more entertainment? (That’ll do.)

    • 161 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:58

      She is rather…dull. But I’m not sure it would. Do you think it would? You’d probably try and bother me throughout the show, I’d warrant. Speech, I mean.

      • 162 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 11, 2013 at 02:26

        She is a fool. It’s too bad, really. I’m very sure she made a huge mistake.

        I would do my very best to leave you to your interests. I wouldn’t disrupt. I can be civilized, professor. Well which is it show or speech?

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:01

        What’s the difference between a show and a speech?

      • 164 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 11, 2013 at 20:31

        :lol: Well it appears that when accompanying you to the event they are one in the same…What fun we’d have agreeing to disagree with the speaker. All I’d have to do is give you a look and you’d be in the isle laughing for sure. Yes, my facial expressions are just that good. :D

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 21:48

        :lol: I probably would be. Have a heard time keeping a straight face when the speaker is very bad. You would get the professor into big trouble.

      • 166 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 11, 2013 at 22:46

        :lol: I’d watch your brain work while your humphs got louder and louder! You make me laugh, professor. I can only imagine. Yes, 100% I would get you into trouble. You could count on that.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:39

        :lol: It would probably turn a dull speech into a great one!

      • 168 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 12, 2013 at 15:21

        :) I believe it would!

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 15:32

        It would!

      • 170 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 12, 2013 at 15:35

        I won’t be able to teach today if you keep this up. It so would!!! Get to work, Duketh.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 23:30

        I don’t work. I play.

      • 172 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 13, 2013 at 03:10

        Hey, me too. I’m running my tiny United Nations classroom during the day. I’m sure your having a bit more fun playing where you are.

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2013 at 15:46

        You should play a Punchy skit for your United Nations and scare them all.

      • 174 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 13, 2013 at 16:50

        Well that’s a thought… no I won’t.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:27

        Too scary and rotten.

      • 176 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 14, 2013 at 00:31

        Maybe…for them it would be, I think. I wish I could. You tell a fine story, professor.

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:35

        I tell stories very badly, I fear.

      • 178 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 14, 2013 at 00:40

        This again? Good day, Sir!

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke December 14, 2013 at 00:53

        And a humdinger to you, too!

      • 180 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 14, 2013 at 04:06

        I’ve got nothing. Just give this one to me…

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:47

        No, I don’t think I will.

      • 182 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 15, 2013 at 21:51

        Yes, because I said so, very nicely.

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:57

        Nicely posh.

      • 184 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 14, 2013 at 04:11

        No you don’t. Stop saying that!

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:49

        It’s a great word.

      • 186 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 15, 2013 at 21:53

        It might be, but I don’t appreciate you saying you can’t tell a story. Not something I’ll agree to, so stop trying to convience me otherwise.

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2013 at 21:58

        Sometimes the truth is scary.

      • 188 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 15, 2013 at 22:01

        It seems

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 13:43

        There is always something seemingly seeming.

      • 190 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 16, 2013 at 14:55

        And that is the best part.

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 16:31

        And most confusing part.

      • 192 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 16, 2013 at 16:45

        Don’t hurt yourself, professor.

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2013 at 17:45

        I shan’t!

      • 194 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 16, 2013 at 20:16

        Stop yelling at me…

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 13:26

        I’m not yelling, only screaming.

      • 196 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 17, 2013 at 14:49

        At the top of your lungs? Don’t hurt your singing voice.

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 16:03

        How do you know I sing? Maybe I don’t.

      • 198 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 17, 2013 at 16:45

        Lucky guess, maybe just hopeful. But maybe you do…

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 20:10

        I’m against guessing.

      • 200 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 17, 2013 at 20:12

        Yes, well la tee da. It’s all a girl can do, professor. You’re locked up as tight as a fresh can of cashews. :lol: We have to start guessing at some point.

      • 201 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2013 at 20:14

        Well, what do you want to know? I’m very forthcoming.

      • 202 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 17, 2013 at 20:15

        Right

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2013 at 13:38

        Left

      • 204 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 18, 2013 at 20:52

        Are we marching? To the beat of a drum? Come on professor, this will be fun!

      • 205 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2013 at 21:54

        Are you rhyming?

      • 206 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 19, 2013 at 02:54

        I was earlier…some really sad poetry. This makes me laugh because when I responded I didn’t feel very rhymey. Look what you did!

      • 207 Professor VJ Duke December 19, 2013 at 14:46

        I’m not sure what I did, actually.

      • 208 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 19, 2013 at 15:09

        Helped me rhyme..drum…fun…that was easy to figure out

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke December 19, 2013 at 16:10

        It was?

      • 210 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 19, 2013 at 18:13

        Yes for me anyway

      • 211 Professor VJ Duke December 19, 2013 at 23:30

        The professor is too dull.

      • 212 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 20, 2013 at 01:30

        No…nawwww. You…stop it

      • 213 Professor VJ Duke December 20, 2013 at 13:38

        Anytime I try to be sweet you stop me. I suppose I’ll just have to be wicked.

      • 214 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 20, 2013 at 18:49

        I do? My eyes shall remain wide open from now on, professor. Wicked is allowed…sometimes.

      • 215 Professor VJ Duke December 20, 2013 at 20:36

        Sometimes is good enough, I guess

      • 216 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 20, 2013 at 20:57

        Its refreshing when we play nicely ;)

      • 217 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2013 at 14:58

        :D It is! That’s because I’m in a good humor.

      • 218 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 21, 2013 at 15:09

        It suits you. ;)

      • 219 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2013 at 15:11

        I’m also in a white suit.

      • 220 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 21, 2013 at 15:14

        Oh no!! With a red tie?

      • 221 Professor VJ Duke December 30, 2013 at 15:03

        Maybe. Never pink or purple, though.

  16. 222 FictionFan December 10, 2013 at 15:14

    What a shame my Schwarzy wasn’t there! He could have done his famous loon impersonation!

    In the unlikely event that Mr R was right, you could still get 1500 in so long as 100 were willing to sit on other people’s knees. Or if 100 really obese people turned up, then voila! Seating for 1300 only…

    (My dear C-W-W was a little rude – though NOT crude – to that creature. Was he suffering from cashew withdrawal or something at the time?)

    • 223 FictionFan December 10, 2013 at 15:16

      PS Your tags have reached new heights of sublimity today! :lol:

      • 224 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:52

        :D Aren’t they something? Doesn’t take me long to think them up.

    • 225 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 15:28

      I thought your C-W-W was a tad abrupt. Land sake, Professor, did you skip your tea this a.m.?

      • 226 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 15:29

        Or were you trying out for the part of the Grinch?

      • 227 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:57

        Seriously! I wasn’t that mean, was I?

      • 228 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:57

        What did I do? I thought I was being just a bit spicy.

      • 229 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:45

        You are fine, Professor. It was just unexpected given that you advertise how sweet you are.

      • 230 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:09

        Me? Sweet?!! I’m NOT sweet!

      • 231 Susan P December 11, 2013 at 12:44

        You were the one who insisted.

      • 232 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:05

        I don’t remember any such dadblamery.

    • 233 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 17:51

      :lol: I think he does it pretty well, too.

      :lol: :lol: FEF! That’s very funny…dear me. And rude, though. Very rude. (I just know you were thinking of Fats Henry.)

      (Well, the can be so annoying. I didn’t want to be rude. But she forced me to it. What should I have done?)

      • 234 FictionFan December 10, 2013 at 20:55

        He does! I’ll never hear a loon again without thinking of him.

        Me? Rude? Surely not! (Actually I was thinking of the corpulent blonde one, and trying to imagine both of those creatures perched on Mr R’s knees – but it was all too horrible to contemplate, and I think it must have brought on some kind of mental breakdown…)

        (Sliced off her head with your katana, chopped her up and put her in a pie? Just a thought…)

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2013 at 23:58

        Me neither. Though I never hear the dadblamed things.

        That is a horrible thought. I’m sure Mr. R wouldn’t approve–or maybe he would. It’s so hard to decide what he would find “rude and crude.”

        :shock: :shock: A wicked thought!

      • 236 Susan P December 10, 2013 at 22:45

        Laughing, FF – I think I need to visit the facilities now.

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 00:09

        :lol: Miss FEF can be brutal at times. Thank goodness she puts up with the professor.

      • 238 Susan P December 11, 2013 at 12:45

        Brutal? Please. You make me laugh.

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2013 at 18:05

        What’s wrong with that?

      • 240 Susan P December 12, 2013 at 01:20

        You are as brutal as George. Mind, he can be brutal when his food isn’t coming, but a lot of menfolk suffer similarly.

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke December 12, 2013 at 14:44

        Yes, I know. You think the professor is sweet.
