The Rules of Being a Salami

Daddy Salami sat down and passed a drinking horn to the newest member of his family, Sandra.

Sandra Salami.

“So, Sandra me dear,” Salami began. “I should tell ya about the rules every Salami follows.”

Sandra nodded. She was a mess. Her red hair sort of went in all directions, but her large round glasses kept the hair from poking her eyes out. (A worry the professor always has, you see–when wearing the mop.)

“Rule #1,” Salami said: “I’m the patriarch of the family, not Oregano, me brother. He’ll try to make you think he’s the boss, but he’s not!” Salami’s green eyes were glowing.

“Does that make me the matriarch?”

“Of course. Me daughter definitely!”

Sandra smiled.

“Rule #2,” Salami said: “Julliard, O’Reggy’s son, is not Ruber’s better. You’re brother, Sandra, is a fearsome warrior.” Salami leaned closer. “Why, I heard once that he led an army of 120!”

Sandra’s brow kinda scrunched up. “You heard? Shouldn’t you know for sure?”

Salami laughed, and leaned back into his chair. “When he was younger, Ruber was a free spirit. I tried to keep him contained, but…he was a warrior!”

Sandra rolled her eyes. Then she went back to flipping through some sort of medical book, with scary pictures.

“And that brings us to the last point–for now. Point #3: Don’t mess with me baby son, Lucini Pavarinni.”

Sandra looked up and nodded. “Ruber said he was a ‘bad bloke up to no good all the time.'”

Salami’s mouth fell. “Ruber said that?”

Sandra nodded.

“Eww…” And Salami’s green eyes were looking somewhere else for a moment. “Anyway, don’t mess with Lucini. He’s a bright boy. And quite scary.”

    Sandra Salami has a nice ring to it! I wonder what Pav thinks of her… and what he could possibly be up to now. DS seems to know something!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:06

      DS probably has a wicked plan he’s working on. Who knows? LP probably will put up with her.

  2. 3 Catherine October 4, 2014 at 16:15

    I do hope Sandra enjoys her new home.

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:02

      I hope she does too…but I’m not sure!

  3. 5 The Lite Rider October 2, 2014 at 20:39

    Was happy to see Sandra back in the fray. Hmmm, I could be afraid for her. Any time DS’s eyes glow! (Not to mention Ruber’s comment.)

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:37

      *nods and shivers* But I’m thinking she’ll be able to fend for herself. Doesn’t she seem a bit tough?

      • 7 The Lite Rider October 3, 2014 at 13:16

        Yes, a bit! We’ll find out I bet.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:41

        For sure!

  4. 9 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2014 at 14:36

    Good luck, Sandra!!! :-P

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:51

      Do you suppose she has hope?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2014 at 21:40

        I suppose so… :-P

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:40

        You’re supposed to say of course!

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 October 3, 2014 at 13:40

        Of course?

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:42

        That’s the way. Remember, only Sith deal in absolutes. *laughs at Obi*

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 October 3, 2014 at 23:03

        Whatever. And you’ll notice I phrased above comment as a question. No matter how inane it sounds, you can’t go far wrong by seeming to ask what something means.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:59

        That’s a very good point.

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 October 5, 2014 at 19:19

        No one can protest your position if all you do is ask them questions. :-P

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:14

        That’s a very good point. I should put this into practice.

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 October 7, 2014 at 12:35

        X-D

  5. 20 Painting Pundit October 2, 2014 at 01:41

    I don’t think I like a nicer DS. He is much fun when he is evil.

    • 21 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:35

      Which is a good point. He’ll probably be just protective of Sandra. But surely, P, we can’t destroy his wicked nature? That’d be too easy.

  6. 22 Julie Harris October 1, 2014 at 21:15

    The Salami family is an interesting bunch!

    • 23 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:33

      Definitely. Scary, too.

  7. 24 Lady Cheetah October 1, 2014 at 20:45

    I hope Sandra gives DS a run for his money. She might be the death of him, but then again no one dies in the PL.

    • 25 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:32

      DS has before…Do you like Sandra, Lady?

      • 26 Lady Cheetah October 4, 2014 at 17:26

        Not quite sure if I can like someone who doesn’t take to using a comb and brush. Makes me wonder if she bathes….ijs…

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:03

        Well…does she need to bath?

      • 28 Lady Cheetah October 6, 2014 at 14:38

        Yes!

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:43

        Maybe once a week…

  8. 30 Simply Skeptical October 1, 2014 at 20:06

    Sandra sounds like she’ll fit in swell as a Salami! Her red hair his green eyes ooo such dadblamery all in the same family. An excellent PL clan indeed! (Laughing)

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:31

      I think she’ll fit in…but what if she doesn’t?

  9. 32 Nancy Loderick October 1, 2014 at 18:34

    Hi Professor,

    Well, as long as dear daughter follows the Salami rules, all should be well, right?

    Nancy

    • 33 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:29

      Absolutely! I think she’ll be good for him, Nancy. Don’t you?

      • 34 Nancy Loderick October 2, 2014 at 20:59

        Oh most definitely Professor! :)

        Nancy

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:38

        That’s that, then.

  10. 36 Debbie October 1, 2014 at 17:53

    My first thought was that D.S. was doing a good thing in laying down the Rules of the Salamis to the newest family member. Then, I started picturing this scene — Sandra’s bushy red hair, her creepy book, her desire to be the matriarch — and I just…kind of…gagged. There’s more going on here than meets the eye, Professor. Just you wait and see!

    • 37 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:26

      Do you think it could turn into a bloody conflict?

  11. 38 L. Marie October 1, 2014 at 17:03

    I didn’t know Ruber was such a brave warrior.
    I will be interested to see what Sandra does, not that she’s a Salami.

    • 39 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:25

      *nods* I think she might keep DS a bit straight, which is a good thing, you must admit.

  12. 40 InfiniteZip October 1, 2014 at 16:33

    Is she adopted, was she kidnapped…red hair is great, just ask anyone!

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:23

      Adopted, I’d say. I mean, she seems willing to stick about, don’t you know. Do you have red hair, Zippy?

      • 42 InfiniteZip October 2, 2014 at 16:23

        Nope, brunette and grey streaked through, aging gracefully I should say.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:56

        Is brunette brown?

      • 44 InfiniteZip October 2, 2014 at 23:53

        Last I checked…and grey is grey but does not mean old…had a few at 18 and that’s not old. Or is it?

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:41

        Of course not! The professor is old, though. When you reach his age, you’ll understand old.

      • 46 InfiniteZip October 3, 2014 at 16:32

        Old like ancient?

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:49

        Yes! Pyramid old.

      • 48 InfiniteZip October 4, 2014 at 14:19

        Wow…that’s a relic.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:59

        Does that mean I am, too?

      • 50 InfiniteZip October 6, 2014 at 09:19

        Not quite yet :)

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:31

        Soon?

      • 52 InfiniteZip October 6, 2014 at 16:18

        Perhaps…maybe tomorrow ?

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:49

        Okay, then. *nods happily and begins to sink something obscene*

  13. 54 Angeline M October 1, 2014 at 16:22

    Stop the presses! Just where did DS get this Sandra girl? Where did she come from? Who is she? If I dye my hair red do I have a chance of becoming a Salami? Only I don’t follow rules very well.

    • 55 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:21

      It is a wonder! DS went on vacation, and came back with Sandra, a medical student. Mr. Magi is seeing if she has a family, but it doesn’t seem so. *nods* You’d have a good chance. But then again, Pavarinni doesn’t have red hair. Which is a wonder. Would you want to join the Salami family?

      • 56 Angeline M October 2, 2014 at 15:42

        He must have gone to Las Vegas; you know what they say about that place (what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas). I’ll have to ask my husband if he would mind if I became a Salami and went to live in the PL. If you never hear from me again it only means he has finally found the documentation he needed to have me committed to the loony bin.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:54

        *laughs* I do see. Well, he’s welcome to come too. Do you suppose he might like DS?

  14. 58 icedmocha34 October 1, 2014 at 16:22

    Aww, don’t worry, Salami!! My children are quite scary too!!!

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:20

      Yeah! Aren’t they the ones that are always coming after me?

      • 60 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 17:51

        Only when you threaten to steal food from me…otherwise I’m sure they would like you just fine….
        SWEATER VEST!!!
        Sorry, I’m still cracking up over that…. *snickers quietly*

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:57

        *shocked face* What’s wrong with sweater vests, dadblameit?!

      • 62 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 17:59

        Hee-hee.
        *shrugs* Nothing’s WRONG with them, it’s just funny, I guess… *keeps laughing* Maybe cos now I’m picturing my cats in a sweater vest… Pfffttttttt

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 18:11

        *laughing lots* They’re cool, dadblameit! And very…well, not professorish. Very…cool! Don’t you have any?

      • 64 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 18:16

        No, they are professorish! Didn’t Indiana Jones wear one? Maybe they’re more old college professor-ish…
        I have vests, but not sweater vests. I have fluzzy vests for cold winters.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:29

        That’s right! He did. Hmm… See? I was professorish even before I was the professor! You should get a sweater vest!

      • 66 icedmocha34 October 3, 2014 at 16:49

        But aren’t sweater vests more of a guy thing?

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:49

        I think you could be right. But we don’t know…for sure. (That was a Spiderman quote.)

  15. 68 FictionFan October 1, 2014 at 14:40

    Ruber a warrior? Well…I’m stunned! You could try wearing your mop back to front – that would stop it going in your eyes. Mind you then you’d have to wear your moustache on the back of your head. (Hmm…perhaps Sandra’s hair is a wig. She could be Lucini in disguise…)

    Why ‘Books 120’? Is that how many are on your TBR?

    • 69 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:14

      He is! Didn’t you know that? Not as much of a warrior as me, though. It’s longer in the back! (No, Sandra doesn’t…do you wear one?)

      No! Is there? I hope not. How many are on my TBR after your funny accident?

      • 70 FictionFan October 1, 2014 at 18:22

        No…don’t tell him, but he’s always seemed like a bit of a wuss to me. *guilty face* And I just can’t imagine him in a skirt… Yes, but being longer means it won’t go in your eyes – sorted! And your pretty pink nose will still peek through… (I don’t need to – I’m naturally gorgeous. *smiles modestly*)

        Then what does it mean?? 153, I think – but I haven’t added any yet today…

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:27

        Well, everyone does, I think. I mean, you’ve called the professor one! But…of course it will! I don’t think you understand long hair, madam! (Yes, I know that…but I meant for a disguise!)

        153?! That’s a sick joke! Isn’t it? *hoping* Well…it was…quite random, I fear.

      • 72 FictionFan October 2, 2014 at 15:40

        Only when he deserved it, though, to be fair. *sighs patiently and flicks hair* You see, my dear Prof, if it’s long enough it will hang over your eyes, rather than go in them. And so long as you have someone to guide you around – problem solved! (Smooth recovery!)

        156 now! But since you will never read any of them, it shouldn’t give you nightmares. Well…how dull!

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:53

        *laughs and spins hair like Jim does* Oh…well…I say, just get a haircut like Vin. It’s simpler. (The Pats lost badly Monday. It was horrid.)

        It just might! Yes, I fear that I am.

      • 74 FictionFan October 2, 2014 at 20:29

        Jim who?!? Perhaps I have… (Did they? I hope Vince didn’t get his nose hurt.)

        Good! The Professor is as bright as…nah, I’ve done enough compliments for tonight. *hard face*

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:37

        Jim Caviezel! Who else? Goodness. (He was mad. It was pretty depressing. I think the dynasty is over.)

        Your compliments are interests. You see, I think they laugh me to scorn more than they compliment me.

      • 76 FictionFan October 3, 2014 at 14:17

        He spins his hair?? Well, I’m gardoobled! (Oh dear. You’ll just have to watch tennis instead then.)

        Stuff and nonsense! Balderdash and poppycock! The Professor is well aware that my C-W-W is the one bright star in an otherwise cold, dark sky…

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:47

        Yes! In the Count of Monte Cristo! (That depresses me now.)

        I thought I was a dying star…didn’t you say that? Or did I say that?

      • 78 FictionFan October 3, 2014 at 21:49

        That might almost make it worth watching. (Why?)

        Not me!! A blazing, shooting star streaking across the firmament…

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:55

        It’s a great movie. Jim’s in it. That makes it good. (‘Cause it points out my many flaws.)

        Wow…that’s an interest. Thank you, I think. But, aren’t shooting stars going to blow up eventually?

      • 80 FictionFan October 5, 2014 at 22:58

        You should do a non-ripping rip of it then so I can decide… (But…you don’t have any…)

        Good noodles! You’re so fussy! OK, you can be a new star just forming at the centre of the galaxy with billions of years of energy stored inside, bringing a whole new light source to the universe… *taps foot and waits to see what he’ll complain about this time*

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:28

        A non-ripping review? How would that be done, though? (Aww! You’re too nice. But I do. Billions of them.)

        *laughing* But, FEF! Billions of years takes a long time. Can’t I have all the energy now?

      • 82 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 14:33

        I don’t know – you’re the creative one!! (But they cancel each other out, leaving only a perfect Professorial personage behind…)

        *borrows Professor’s desk and bangs head* Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! OK you’re a supernova and you just exploded!!!

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:41

        I am not creative! Just…weird… (That’s such a nice thing to say. *starts playing guitar* I’m going to do that all the time to you now.)

        *laughing lots* I want to be a super professor!

      • 84 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 22:04

        Well, if you’re not creative, why am I here? Eh? (*steam comes out of ears* Are you? Oh good. Excuse me, I’m just off to phone an assassin…)

        Oh…you…you…are definitely a super something!

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:00

        Umm…well, I don’t know…you ask such hard questions. I’ll just say, yes. (*laughing lots* You want me dead, dadblameit!)

        *laughs* You’re mad at me!

      • 86 FictionFan October 7, 2014 at 18:29

        *chuckling* Poor C-W-W! Life gets so tough sometimes! (Only a little…)

        What gives you that idea, dadblameit! *swirls on heel and flounces off*

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:57

        (Okay, the other half of me–the guitar guy–died just for you, then.)

        Most males in my position wouldn’t know. I say I’m perceptive.

  16. 88 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2014 at 13:50

    DS is showing his sweet side, Duke. How nice of him to sit Sandra down for a quick chat. I’m thinking she’ll be good to have around the PL. I do hope she has a lot of patience. Very good of DS to warn his daughter. I’m wondering why she’s always looking through a book.

    • 89 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:11

      She’s studying medicine, Audith. So, she’s probably working for an exam or something. Soon to be doctor, you see! DS is being sweet. A bit odd?

      • 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2014 at 19:42

        I know but each time she has books, not that I’m complaining! I’m just thinking she must be very busy. PL is in need of a doctor, huh? I suppose so, I mean he’s been sweetish before but he’s showing his softer side with Sandra.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:31

        Well, Bud Parker is a doctor. And there are others all over the world. She might be the best. DS needs a doctor.

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 2, 2014 at 13:06

        Bud Parker is a doctor? Not sure how I missed that one. The best? Wow. I’m impressed and a good thing if DS needs one.

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:46

        He’s a doctor of sorts. Can’t say he’s to be trusted, you know. But is any doctor?

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 2, 2014 at 20:07

        I don’t recall ever knowing that about Bud. I learn something new every day with you. No, only Dr. Pepper and I’m not allowed to find his practice appropriate any longer. *smiles*

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:32

        An interest! Well…have some greek yogurt instead.

      • 96 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 4, 2014 at 14:38

        Always. Greek yogurt is indeed on the menu. What is your favorite?

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:00

        I’ve just taken a liking to it, actually. Cherry! How about yours?

      • 98 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 02:49

        Fage is my favorite brand and Strawberry…or peach, blackberry is nice, too

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:30

        Strawberry is tasty. Fage…I will have to look into this.

      • 100 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 14:56

        You should, tis the best. I’ve tried them all, you see.

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:45

        *nods* Just so I don’t have to! That was nice of you, I’d say.

      • 102 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 20:53

        I enjoy helping you, Duketh. Your time is far too precious. Plus there are some nasty ones out there!!

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:50

        Yes, there sure are! Your time is precious too, madam.

      • 104 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 7, 2014 at 19:20

        Thank you, my dear. It can be somedays.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 20:00

        *nods*

  17. 106 Susan P October 1, 2014 at 13:49

    Sententious old fool. She’s gonna do for him. Just you wait and see.

    • 107 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:11

      Do you think DS is proud of her? I think so.

      • 108 Susan P October 1, 2014 at 16:26

        Yes, I think he is…but she’s going to give him a run for his money.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:21

        Which I think you probably support.

      • 110 Susan P October 2, 2014 at 14:08

        I neither support or not support. I am here to see the action and watch the story unfold.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:49

        But it’s not always safe that way, you know.

        Safe? Who wants to be safe? I want adventure.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:30

        Are you positive?

      • 114 Susan P October 3, 2014 at 12:49

        yep.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:37

        Well, then. Let’s go.

      • 116 Susan P October 3, 2014 at 21:52

        It seems as though you’ve already gone. Are you working a 3-day work now?

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:55

        No…why do you ask?

      • 118 Susan P October 5, 2014 at 19:49

        Because the last two weeks you’ve only posted three posts each.

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:14

        Really? I thought I had four last week… My mind must be going. No, there should be four a week.

      • 120 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 14:37

        I need some pumpkins.

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:41

        And spice.

      • 122 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 20:49

        No sugar?

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:49

        Well, maybe.

      • 124 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 17:46

        Sugar is not good for you.

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:52

        Oh yes it is!

      • 126 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 20:51

        It has been cited as contributing to Alzheimer’s. Along with a few other things.

      • 127 Susan P October 5, 2014 at 19:50

        Okay – never mind. I was laboring under false memories.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:15

        Aha! It’s fine. Must be because there was no movie.

      • 129 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 14:37

        That and my head was fuzzy.

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:42

        Like mine!

      • 131 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 20:49

        Quite possibly identical.

  18. 132 walt walker October 1, 2014 at 13:07

    Now what was in that drinking horn, I wonder?

    • 133 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:06

      Bug juice…or, I know, yellow wine.

  19. 134 PorterGirl October 1, 2014 at 11:56

    Those rules seem reasonable enough to me. I hope Sandra is settling in nicely, DS and Ruber appear to be making her very welcome.

    I would like to see the scary pictures in her book.

    If I ever leave Old College, I think I would like to be a Salami. I could follow the rules, you know.

    • 135 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 12:10

      *nods* Yes. And do you notice how easy and sweet Salami is being? A girl in the family is just what he needed.

      Now, Lucy! But why? Might give you nightmares!

      I’m sure you could. And you’d make DS quite proud. Because you’re a warrior. Would you get on with Ruber?

      • 136 PorterGirl October 1, 2014 at 13:07

        You are right, a daughter is just what he needed. What a sweet man he is, really.

        *laughs* I like scary things! I am a scary thing. I probably give other people nightmares.

        I could get on quite well with Ruber. We could talk about warrior things and I would teach him things I know. And maybe work for him as well. He could sell my famous cherry muffins!

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:08

        Yes, I’m seeing some sweet things, definitely. Surprising a bit, isn’t it?

        *laughs* Nah! You’re too nice. I give nightmares! I’m the pale orc remember.

        Yes! And you could teach him how to cook a bit? Or, become a chef in his food place!

      • 138 PorterGirl October 1, 2014 at 16:18

        Very surprising, but very nice to see. I hope his new daughter brings him lots of happiness.

        Me? Too nice? I am sure there would be many who would argue that with you, Professor. You have never given me nightmares, orc or not. If you do, I shall be sure to let you know.

        I would be quite chuffed to work as a chef for Ruber. His food place is well respected and widely known. I could become a celebrity chef and make Ruber famous too. The DS would be double proud!

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:18

        And maybe some good meals!

        *laughs* Well, we all have a dreadfully wicked side, except the professor. I’m always wicked. Yes, let me know. That would be an interest. And also…quite scary.

        He certainly would! He’d probably have you keep an eye on Ruber.

      • 140 PorterGirl October 2, 2014 at 12:26

        *laughs* I will be sure you let you know if you appear in a nightmare. I don’t very often have nightmares but I wouldn’t mind them if the Professor was in them. Maybe DS, too.

        I wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on Ruber. I think we could be quite good chums.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:37

        Me neither, I guess. *shuddersS* DS might be scary in one, though! I imagine the Dean could be scary as well.

        I bet you would be. But I’d have to keep an eye on the two of you. You’d get up to some dadblamery otherwise.

      • 142 PorterGirl October 2, 2014 at 12:40

        I had a dream about The Dean (the real life one) once. It was a very odd experience I can tell you.

        Me? Dadblamery?! Surely not Professor. I am a well behaved young(ish) lady!

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:44

        *laughs* Is he still a Dean?

        *laughing more* For the most part, I think!

      • 144 PorterGirl October 3, 2014 at 07:17

        As far as I know, the real life Dean is still The Dean (not sure what he makes of his alter ego at Old College!)

        *laughing even more!*

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:41

        *laughs* Does he know about it?

      • 146 PorterGirl October 3, 2014 at 13:07

        Yes indeed he does. If he was unhappy about it, I think I might well have heard something by now. Probably *laughs*

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:40

        *laughing* That is rather cool.

    • 148 Susan P October 1, 2014 at 13:50

      You know, Lucy, I never thought of that, but it would certainly be interesting.

      • 149 PorterGirl October 1, 2014 at 15:15

        I agree Susan. Very interesting indeed!

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2014 at 16:14

        *nods* And scary.
