The Professor Hunts

The professor was about hunting.

A person.

But not in the way you think.

I was hunting him in order to have speaks with him.

In fact, the whole reason I was where I was, was because I wanted to see him.

But I couldn’t find him.

It was a busy place. People were everywhere.

And the professor had the incredible luck to run into Mr. Ratherquite.

Well, he ran into me.

Literally.

“So sorry, sir!” he wheezed. “But I was trying to catch up to the ladies.”

“I see, I see,” I replied.

“What are you up to?” he asked. “You seem to be looking for someone. I can tell from all the weird head and neck craning exercises you seem to be doing.”

I stopped at once and faced him. “In fact, Mr. Ratherquite, I am looking for someone. I’m diligently search-searching for him. What do you make of it?”

“Nothing at all. I make of it what it is. You are searching. Can I be of service?”

The professor wanted to say, “You never are,” but I refrained and said, “Yes. Do you know where I can find Mr. Dillweed?”

Mr. Ratherquite paused and then came and stood alongside of me. He started the head and neck craning exercises, too. “You know, I don’t see him. By the way, good sir, what does he look like, and who is he exactly?”

“I’m not sure, but I’d know him if I saw him. Do you suppose he’s about?”

“I suppose I’m about.”

“Bad thing, too.”

“What?”

“Excuse me, Mr. Ratherquite, but suddenly, I don’t want to find Mr. Dillweed.”

“And why not?” Mr. Ratherquite asked, surprised.

“Because if I hadn’t been search-searching for him, I wouldn’t have run into you.”

And the professor made good his escape.

    Was he found? Maybe he is at a parade?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:50

      Maybe eating peanuts? Is that possible?

      • 3 InfiniteZip July 4, 2014 at 17:52

        Yes, I like to think so….

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:54

        Was he hiding on purpose?

      • 5 InfiniteZip July 4, 2014 at 18:19

        Of course, in plain sight.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:08

        I’m rather dull, then, huh?

      • 7 InfiniteZip July 7, 2014 at 12:11

        No, sly like a fox;)

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 12:50

        Haha! But how do you know?

      • 9 InfiniteZip July 7, 2014 at 13:52

        I read your blog…..how else would I know? Do you think I have spies?

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 16:40

        Yes, I bet so! Unicorns too. Don’t you?

      • 11 InfiniteZip July 9, 2014 at 11:38

        of course, but only one. you only need one:) right?

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 13:34

        Yes, I think so. Do you ride him?

      • 13 InfiniteZip July 9, 2014 at 14:30

        no, we walk together and whisper secrets…but if I were injured, I’m sure he would let me.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 22:45

        Can he kill with his horn?

      • 15 InfiniteZip July 10, 2014 at 10:38

        No, he would not do such a dastardly thing…unless maybe he had to rescue me from a polar bear or something.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2014 at 12:04

        He couldn’t beat a polar bear!

      • 17 InfiniteZip July 10, 2014 at 12:18

        maybe a grizzly then?

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2014 at 17:49

        Grizzly’s are bigger! Leastaways, the weigh a lot more.

  2. 19 Hazy July 3, 2014 at 13:12

    Well, hullo there Mr. R! It’s nice to hear from him again. I’m glad you didn’t fall over when he ran into you! (you must have excellent balance)

    This Mr. Dillweed intrigues me. I wonder why the professor is in search of him.

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:39

      I can at times, yes. The professor is a sports warrior! *laughs*

      Well…he dropped his hat. You see, it said Mr. Dillweed on it, and I was trying to return it.

      • 21 Hazy July 8, 2014 at 14:01

        *laughs* Does that mean you’re skilled at many sports? Soccer, perhaps? (it’s the first thing that popped in my head because of the World Cup haha)

        Ah, I see. That’s very nice and sweet of the professor! What kind of hat was it? A top hat like yours?

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 16:11

        Well…I don’t know. I love to play. No…I was always a better goalie then anything else. I could never dribble! I love playing tennis and badminton.

        Well…it was purple actually. Rater strange color, huh?

      • 23 Hazy July 9, 2014 at 12:16

        I’m sure you’re pretty good! I could never defend, they say I’m too nice to push people around like in basketball or soccer. *sheepish grin* Oh, I love playing tennis too! I don’t have to worry about getting physical with the other player *laughs*

        A purple hat! I now somehow imagine it more like a bowler hat than a top hat.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 13:36

        Haha! Well, I understand that. Though, I never minded decking people. Yes, tennis is great, for sure. I need to play more.

        You know, I think it was somewhere in between.

      • 25 Hazy July 11, 2014 at 12:04

        *laughs* For some reason, I can imagine the professor decking people while wearing a top hat and sports clothes. More tennis, yes! Does Alb or Nick play tennis too?

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke July 11, 2014 at 13:07

        *laughing* That would make a great movie or something, I think! Yes, well, I try to make Alb play at times. He likes it, too.

      • 27 Hazy July 17, 2014 at 14:08

        *laughs lots* It think it would! *ahem, in an announcer voice* A professor in top hat and sports clothes running against time to compete in a tennis match, decking people on the way to Wimbledon. Will he make it?

        Does Alb win against the professor?

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 15:06

        *laughing lots and lots* Splendid! I love the vision for it. Now we must find a way to make it happen!

        No! *smiles proudly*

      • 29 Hazy July 18, 2014 at 11:56

        *curtsys* I’m glad you like it! I would draw it if I could, but I’m exceptionally useless at drawing.

        *claps lots* The professor must be very good! (Did you watch the recent Wimbledon finals? It was a very exciting match!)

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 13:05

        So am I! Oh well. Don’t worry about it.

        Oh no that good! *laughs* I didn’t. I missed it. I wanted to see it, though. Who’s your favorite?

      • 31 Hazy September 1, 2014 at 12:16

        In the Wimbledon match? I didn’t mind whoever won between the finalists… though I was rooting for Djokovic!

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:02

        And he won, I think!

      • 33 Hazy September 14, 2014 at 08:23

        Yes, he did! But I think he got eliminated early in the US Open.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:14

        Which is a pity.

  3. 35 L. Marie July 3, 2014 at 12:32

    Well, I hope you eventually find Mr. Dillweed, but not in a place Mr. Ratherquite frequents.

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:34

      Yes! I’ll send him to you, if you don’t mind. At least, we’d lose him that way.

  4. 37 John W. Howell July 2, 2014 at 21:32

    Mr. Dillweed. Is he of the Memphis Dillweeds? If so I don’t know him.

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 22:00

      Is there a group of them in Memphis? And what sorts do you know?

      • 39 John W. Howell July 2, 2014 at 22:15

        I’m afraid I don’t know any Dillweeds.

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:19

        Rats and a Heifer! Neither do I. It’s a pity, too. I mean, I suppose I knew this Dillweed, but he definitely can’t count.

      • 41 John W. Howell July 3, 2014 at 21:59

        Dillweed as in adjective or noun?

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:38

        A noun, I fear.

      • 43 John W. Howell July 4, 2014 at 18:18

        Oh dear.*puts hands together in supplication to the great god protector of those who must deal with fools named Dillweed and says a prayer for the professor*

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:08

        *laughs* And I need it badly, I think.

  5. 45 The Dancing Rider July 2, 2014 at 19:46

    I’m not sure what to make of this. I feel bad for Mr. R, though I also feel contemptuous about him most of the time.

    Why on earth would the professor have given up searching?! Surely you truly wanted to find Mr. D?

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:59

      I know. Why do you suppose the ladies are running from him?

      I did, it’s true. Did I give up too easily?

      • 47 The Dancing Rider July 3, 2014 at 13:17

        I imagine Mr. R’s ladies are usually running him around, rather than running from him. And whilst he is chasing after them, they are donig what they want.

        Well, I don’t see it as giving up — as much as wondering why something as simple as Mr. R’s appearance negated the need to find Mr. D! Small distinction, that. ;-)

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:40

        Yes, that’s it exactly. You know better than I! They’re manipulating…just like he is. It sorta works together, though.

        Well, dadblameit! I was fed up with the operation. You see, I found Mr. D’s hat and was trying to return it.

  6. 49 Julie Harris July 2, 2014 at 18:33

    Good thing he made his escape! No telling who else he may have run in to!

    • 50 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:59

      And there’s always dadblamery afoot, Julie!

  7. 51 Debbie July 2, 2014 at 17:51

    Well, gee, just because the professor ran into the wrong person shouldn’t stop his search for the right person. Or should it? I’m sure I don’t know. Mr. R. wasn’t very helpful though, was he?

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:59

      He wasn’t! And you have a point. Did I give up too easily? Dadblameit!

  8. 53 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 17:04

    Mr. Dillweed is probably in the egg salad.

    • 54 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:58

      *laughing lots and lots* Aha! Is that where he went to?

      • 55 Susan P July 3, 2014 at 01:12

        Well, that and tuna salad are where I put dillweed. :D

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:24

        You know, what is dillweed?

      • 57 Susan P July 4, 2014 at 20:24

        It’s an herb. The seeds are used in pickling.

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:21

        Of course I knew this.

      • 59 Susan P July 11, 2014 at 18:20

        and in egg salad.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2014 at 01:44

        I like egg salad.

      • 61 Susan P July 12, 2014 at 15:01

        So do I ! I put a little bit of smoked paprika in it.

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 12:46

        I’ve never tried that, but it sounds good. Smoked?

      • 63 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 14:34

        Yes, like Tex-Mex flavor.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 19:43

        Tex-Mex sounds like a dinosaur.

      • 65 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 20:01

        Second cousin to a T-Rex – how did you know?

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 20:05

        Just professorish knowledge!

      • 67 Susan P July 15, 2014 at 02:26

        I am awed by your knowledge.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2014 at 12:49

        Laughing me to scorn!

      • 69 Susan P July 15, 2014 at 21:20

        Nosir.Never.

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 00:47

        Humph noodles.

      • 71 Susan P July 16, 2014 at 12:22

        Laughing with is not the same as laughing at. Have you ever considered what an odd spelling laughing is?

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 13:14

        You’re right! Goodness me. Does it need an ‘f’?

  9. 73 walt walker July 2, 2014 at 13:40

    Way to give him the what for, Old Sport!

    • 74 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:54

      *smiles proudly* Thanks, Mr. Walker! Do you suppose I was too mean?

      • 75 walt walker July 3, 2014 at 01:30

        You know him best. Were you?

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:25

        No! There isn’t such a thing, is there?

      • 77 walt walker July 3, 2014 at 20:46

        Maybe you were quite mean. Rather mean, all things considered.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:48

        *laughing* But he deserved it! Is it okay to be mean…even rather mean to Ratherquite?

      • 79 walt walker July 3, 2014 at 23:11

        Did he? Deserve it, that is? That’s a pickle. Or rather, that’s quite a pickle, I’d say. But I do love pickles myself, and if he doesn’t then perhaps he had it coming.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:40

        *laughs* Yes, I think he deserved it. Sweet or dill?

  10. 81 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 2, 2014 at 13:38

    You know what? Dillweed used to be a nickname for a man you couldn’t stand to be around. Someone you thought sort of ridiculous or stupid; one you had little respect for… back in Nebraska that is.

    I think your head cranking would have been fun to see. I thought you were tall, however. Able to survey without trouble. *wonders*

    Mr. R has been missed. Now the song reference you gave me makes sense.

    • 82 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:54

      Me? Who?! Did I say something like that? You must tell me now, dadblameit! I’ve never been to Nebraska.

      *laughs* Interesting though, isn’t it, Audith?

      How so?

      • 83 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 2, 2014 at 14:41

        I don’t know?! Did you? I have no idea…
        You’ve told me that you’ve never been to Nebraska. She is really annoyed with you, too. She has history there…you know!

      • 84 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 2, 2014 at 14:42

        Oops! Wrong button!

        Very interesting. Cough it up! What is going on!? *laughs*

        Saw it in your tags.

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:52

        A man from Nebraska…did I tell you about someone like that? Nebraska has twisters which is cool.

        Well…what do you suppose?

        Oh yes. I’m sorta…well, can’t get it out of my head.

      • 86 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 3, 2014 at 05:13

        What? I’m so confused… Yes, Nebraska does and I’ve narrowingly missed them this trip.

        I have no idea.

        Ahh. That means be quiet Audrey and sit still.

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:34

        Me too, dadblameit!

        Me neither, you know. I usually don’t, too.

        Why does it mean that?

      • 88 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 4, 2014 at 04:22

        What sort are we, Duke?

        Well, I was simply wondering and you won’t tell, Mr. I Always Answer.

        Because you said so.

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:46

        The confused type? Nah…the sweet type? Nah. The wicked type! Yes!

        But you didn’t ask a specific question, in all fairness…

        When?

      • 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 4, 2014 at 19:21

        Yes, we’re so good at it.

        I sorta did, Duketh…

        Back there.. *points behind you*

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:10

        Yes, we are.

        Did not!!!!!

        I don’t believe you, you know.

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 6, 2014 at 21:51

        *smiles* You more than I, of course.

        Yes, Sir, I did…I implied that you were tall and you chose not to agree or disagree. *shakes your shoulders not know if she has to bend over to or not*

        TISK TISK…

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 12:45

        *laughing lots* Well…I can’t answer such things.

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 7, 2014 at 15:59

        Haha!

  11. 95 erinkenobi2893 July 2, 2014 at 13:13

    That’s a good reason to wish you hadn’t been searching for him, in my opinion. ;-P

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:52

      Yes, I don’t think, Erin, that you’d like Mr. R in person. Do you think so?

      • 97 erinkenobi2893 July 4, 2014 at 12:40

        I doubt it. :-P He’d probably be offended if I said that I spend much of my time hanging out with fictional people, and that’s one of my requirements for a properly geeky friend. ;-P

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:52

        And it’s a good requirement. He’d make you say hi to the ladies as well.

      • 99 erinkenobi2893 July 5, 2014 at 15:31

        Probably. And he probably would not think me very ladylike.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:23

        Jedi aren’t, overall, I think.

      • 101 erinkenobi2893 July 7, 2014 at 15:48

        Ehhh, they can be. Only not in the way Mr. Ratherquite thinks ladies should be, I think. :-P

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 16:43

        You’re probably right. I bet he wouldn’t like Siri.

      • 103 erinkenobi2893 July 7, 2014 at 16:49

        No, he wouldn’t. And then she would either kick his behind, or get him with the frying pan. X-P Or defenestrate him… >:-D

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 16:53

        Throw him from a window? Yes, I’d love to see that. Mr. R might challenge her to a duel too.

      • 105 erinkenobi2893 July 7, 2014 at 17:01

        Foils or pistols? X-P

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 12:13

        That’s true. He might choose a rapier. I’m not sure if he’s good or not.

      • 107 erinkenobi2893 July 8, 2014 at 15:06

        *shrugs* I’m probably better than he is. I’ve been practicing against my brother for years. ;-)

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 16:23

        Plus your Jedi training too, you’d win hands down.

      • 109 erinkenobi2893 July 9, 2014 at 15:47

        Yeah, that too… :-P

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 22:55

        But I’m better than you, I bet!

      • 111 erinkenobi2893 July 10, 2014 at 14:28

        I don’t know… If we were ever in a fight, though, and I found myself about to be defeated, be forewarned: I’d probably take advantage of your top hat. :-P

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2014 at 17:56

        You mean…you’d grab it?

      • 113 erinkenobi2893 July 11, 2014 at 19:14

        Or skewer it, maybe. :-P

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2014 at 01:47

        My precious hat! You wouldn’t dare!

      • 115 erinkenobi2893 July 12, 2014 at 17:28

        Only if you made me… *smiles sweetly* :-P

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 12:49

        Oh, how horrid. I’ll just have to tell Rosalie.

      • 117 erinkenobi2893 July 14, 2014 at 16:32

        I rather think she’ll sympathize with me. Or say “That rascal, Erin.” :-P

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 19:51

        Yes, I think she might. She wants to kill me, you know.

        I know… why do you two fight so much? Especially on my blog… you both have your own blogs, you know! :-P

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2014 at 12:58

        Because we like you to see our military triumphs!

      • 121 erinkenobi2893 July 15, 2014 at 15:06

        -_- Seriously? Sometimes it just strikes me as immature… I mean, you act as if you’re both two?!

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2014 at 15:53

        *laughing* Of course the professor is… Well, I’m older than the mountains and all that jazz, but, seriously…I won’t fight if you’d prefer it that way. I’ll be sweet.

      • 123 erinkenobi2893 July 15, 2014 at 20:59

        Thank you. :-3 I’ll be much happier that way.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 00:41

        Right you are, then.

      • 125 erinkenobi2893 July 16, 2014 at 11:31

        Thank you. :-)

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 13:06

        *bows*

      • 127 erinkenobi2893 July 16, 2014 at 15:03

        :-)

      • 128 erinkenobi2893 July 7, 2014 at 17:02

        Because, pistols are so much less civilized than swords, and there’s less use of skill involved with pistols!

    Ah, what a shame the ladies weren’t with Mr Ratherquite – the Professor could have practised his flirting technique. *winks repeatedly*

    • 130 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:52

      Hmm…I’m incapable of it, I tell you. Does the winking alternate between eyes?

  13. 131 Simply Skeptical July 2, 2014 at 12:15

    Ha, ha, the Professor didn’t say why he wanted to find Mr. Dillweed, but I’m sure it doesn’t matter no how. Now Mr. Ratherquite, a personal favorite, is a kind chap willing to search for that he knows not. (laughing). The Professor might think kinder of him. What must his thoughts have been at such an unexplained get away?

    • 132 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:51

      That’s true. The professor was rather wicked, I admit. Mr. R did help me–voluntarily, at least. Do you think he’s angry?

      • 133 Simply Skeptical July 2, 2014 at 22:52

        Naw not he. He went back to catching up to his ladies of course. :-)

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:19

        I hope you’re right! The professor really does. Wouldn’t it be horrid otherwise?

  14. 135 PorterGirl July 2, 2014 at 12:00

    Aha – Mr Ratherquite! I did wonder where he had got to lately. It seems The Ladies have escaped him temporarily, whatever next? I do love Mr R, although he is completely unhelpful and infuriating most of the time.

    Mr Dillweed appears to be evasive and possibly doesn’t even exist – I salute the Professor for hunting such an elusive chap!

    • 136 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:51

      Yes, I’ve missed him too. I know! He’s always about hunting the ladies. Makes you wonder if they run away from him. Lucy, does Mr. R’s voice sound English or American? I fear he was supposed to be American.

      *laughing* If you had been there, the chase would have been on! If he exists you would have found the bloke!

      • 137 PorterGirl July 2, 2014 at 15:07

        I sure would have found the bloke! (such an English word!) I might have found him even if he didn’t exist.

        You know, sometimes I do think that Mr R sounds more English than American. He reminds me of myself when I have spent too much time in Nashville and I start to develop a bit of a twang. Maybe he is just well travelled?

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:53

        *smiles proudly* I like sounding English. I’ll be like Ruber in a jiffy. Only I’m not sure he’s English-sounding.

        *laughing* I’d love to hear you like that! Is the speak odd down there?

      • 139 PorterGirl July 2, 2014 at 21:59

        You just have to add as many extra vowel sounds as you can to any given word. I actually really quite like it, it’s a challenge! Talking requires great effort.

        Ruber definitely has moments of Englishness! The PL is well represented by my countrymen.

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 22:02

        You put that on while there? Awesome! *laughing* That’s just what I’d do.

        It is! And then there’s the professor. Do I have an accent?

      • 141 PorterGirl July 2, 2014 at 22:09

        I believe your accent to be something like that of an adventurous time traveler who is particularly well read.

        I sort of try to slip into it. It’s such an expressive way of talking. English can be a little reserved, at times.

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:12

        *smiles bigly* I am an adventurous professor for sure! At least, I’d like to hope so. Thanks, Lucy. But I think books hate me.

        I think I agree. I should try and speak like that some time. I’m just rubbish at accents. (I love using that word!)

      • 143 PorterGirl July 3, 2014 at 20:34

        I’m rubbish at them too but it doesn’t stop me having a good try at them!

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:46

        *laughing lots* The perfect attitude, Lucy! I shall try then. And I’m sure you do good at it.

      • 145 PorterGirl July 4, 2014 at 05:01

        All my accents sound Welsh :(

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:49

        Welsh! Now that is cool, Lucy. I wish I…you know, I don’t even know what a Welsh accent sounds like.

      • 147 PorterGirl July 4, 2014 at 19:00

        Hmm – kind of hard to describe it here, but it is a little like Deep South with the big long vowels. Also the inflections happen in unexpected places. And where we might say ‘mate’ or ‘chap’ or ‘buddy’ they say ‘boyyo’. It’s a crazy accent, I really quite like it. I shall have to write in a Welsh character for you.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:09

        Yes! That would be quite neatio. You seem dreadfully good at accents to me!

      • 149 PorterGirl July 7, 2014 at 06:00

        I am better in theory than in practice

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 12:48

        *laughs* Which is just fine with me.
