A Professorish Snack

So, the professor was hungry one day–quite late.

And I made something I’ll never forget.

Something dreadfully terrible.

I took a bagel, put an egg on it (a mostly cooked one, mind you), and put a piece of pepper jack cheese on top of the mostly cooked egg.

It was a garbage masterpiece, I fear.

The professor does not recommend eating such a concoction–ever.

Does it sound terrible?

See, I believe part of the problem was that the concoction sounded good when I first came up with the idea.

Food-logically it should work. Which makes me think there must have been something wrong with the cheese.

But does cheese go bad, PF? I’m not sure.

It was a dadblamery of a meal.

    Perhaps you simply don’t like Pepper Jack. I prefer cheddar. ;-)

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 01:56

      A very good choice, too. Well, this pepper jack was just odd…

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 January 28, 2015 at 03:17

        Perhaps it was old.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 14:33

        You know, that could have been the problem.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 January 28, 2015 at 17:37

        Yes… it could have been. or the peppers were pickled. :-P

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 23:59

        Yucketh!

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 January 29, 2015 at 19:47

        Yucketh indeed.

  2. 8 misskutts January 10, 2015 at 11:48

    Hahahah, this really made me laugh! Loved it!

    • 9 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:07

      Thank you! *bows* Very good to meet you, too. I’m the professor.

      So…would you eat it?

  3. 10 InfiniteZip January 8, 2015 at 10:39

    It needed some smoked spam’ that’s what was missing….and Swiss cheese, not pepper jack…..

    • 11 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:20

      Spam…isn’t that the thing of nightmares?

      • 12 InfiniteZip January 8, 2015 at 17:10

        Only if found in your inbox

      • 13 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 22:17

        *laughing* That’s a good one, Zippy!

  4. 14 Catherine January 8, 2015 at 04:30

    Perhaps the professor should have used an completely cooked egg?

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:13

      *nods* But that’s the thing, Catherine. I thought I had it completely cooked. *hangs head in shame*

      • 16 Catherine January 17, 2015 at 21:54

        Perhaps you should enroll in a cooking class. They’d teach you the difference between an uncooked egg and a cooked one.

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 02:15

        *laughs* And by the end…I could dice tomatoes!

      • 18 Catherine January 20, 2015 at 03:50

        True. And that’s a great skill to have, along with cooking eggs!

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke January 20, 2015 at 13:08

        Eggs and tomatoes… *makes a face*

      • 20 Catherine January 22, 2015 at 02:29

        *gasps* You don’t like eggs and tomatoes? (or are you just eager to learn how to cook more than just eggs and tomatoes?)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke January 23, 2015 at 02:37

        What is eggs and tomatoes?

      • 22 Catherine February 3, 2015 at 03:00

        Well. An egg comes from a chicken, and a tomato comes from a plant.

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2015 at 19:18

        Where’s the plant come from?

      • 24 Catherine February 6, 2015 at 04:20

        A seed! And the seed comes from a plant. Rather confusing, I know.

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 04:08

        But I’ll get my mind around it soon!

      • 26 Catherine February 9, 2015 at 03:23

        Good for you, then, professor. It will be good exercise for the brain!

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2015 at 22:34

        My brain…remember, I have to watch it, though. Too many exercises and it could die.

      • 28 Catherine February 12, 2015 at 02:46

        Oh, dear! Then I say if you haven’t wrapped your mind around it by the end of this month, you should give your brain a break.

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke February 12, 2015 at 21:20

        *laughing lots* Okay. I wouldn’t want to end up brainless.

      • 30 Catherine February 20, 2015 at 02:42

        No. That would not be good!

  5. 31 Louis from VA January 7, 2015 at 22:46

    Well… it does sound tasty on paper…

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:01

      I thought so to! You see, it sounded tasty in the brain. Where did I go wrong?

  6. 33 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 7, 2015 at 21:06

    I think I would’ve made you eat every bite of that horrible idea of yours, professor. After you finished I’d have made you something else the next time. Egg, white cheddar, avacado, and skinny piece of canadian bacon warmed, then all wrapped up into a warm whole wheat tortilla with a bit of salsa.

    Did you eat it all? I like that you can cook for yourself, you know.

    • 34 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 22:08

      I did eat it, yes! The whole dadblame thing. Wowawee!!!! Audith, that sounds so awesome! I don’t usually have avocado’s in the house, though. I should get some. But they take forever to ripen. Is there a secret to that?

      Yes, the professor cooks all the time. Usually, I’m much more successful. I think I was tired and in a hurry.

      • 35 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 8, 2015 at 05:14

        Well, good, I’m glad you followed through, Duke. Hope it was a small bagel. *sparkles* Tis good, I admit! Well, make sure you’re not buying them when they’re really hard. Firstly. When you sort of push on the skin you want to feel a bit of a give…not a smush, but a softening sponge feel, if that makes sense. Or buy them when they’re hard and wait until they soften a bit. Could try putting them in a paper bag for a few days…but watch them closely. *wonders why she’s going to so much effort to explain, as she’s not a chef* Do you find many avocados where you are?

        Yeah, I’ve also whipped something up in a hurry and failed. Like the cinnamon rolls I made two days ago. It had been too long between trying. Oh well.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:16

        It was rather large, I’d say. No, thanks, bunches! I bet you are chef. I mean, you seem like one. Okay, that makes sense, I think. They don’t just last long, do they? Well, I’ll seem them from time to time in the grocery store. And I do love the flavor…can they be cooked?

        *laughs* But they’re so hard to make, aren’t they?

      • 37 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 8, 2015 at 19:57

        I am a cook. I have aprons, you see? No avacados don’t last long, so make sure you invite Nick for a sandwich, too. Yes, you can fry them…tis delicious! !

        You’re acting like you’re incapable, Duke.

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 22:18

        I’ve never had them fried! So, what’s the difference between a chef and cook?

        Umm…hello?

      • 39 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 9, 2015 at 05:25

        Southern Texans eat them fried with cream cheese and jalapeños. .. Well, a cook is someone who can be kissed at the end of a meal…and a chef is someone who wants a postive review in tomorrow’s write up, I believe. Don’t you think?

        *laughs* That’s right! Poor egg had to be consumed over pepper jack cheese… So you’ve never tried. Got it.

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2015 at 12:57

        That sounds really tasty. Do you have a drawl? Aha, I see. Well…I think you could be right. So, the cooking abilities are just the same, then!

        Never have. Have you?

      • 41 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 9, 2015 at 15:54

        My family will say yes, but I don’t hear it. Plus I’m the type who’s voice adapts easily. Do you think I do? Maybe the same…

        Yes… *blank face*

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 00:00

        That’s cool. Well, I”m not sure. I’ve only heard you sing. And that covers up accents, I think.

        *laughs* Perfect answer!

      • 43 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 10, 2015 at 15:36

        How mean of you to bring that up…but yes, I agree.

        *laughs*

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:10

        Well, you asked!

      • 45 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 11, 2015 at 02:31

        I didn’t ask whether my singing had an accent!

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2015 at 19:46

        But that’s the only time I’ve heard you, right?

      • 47 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 12, 2015 at 02:26

        Yes

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke January 12, 2015 at 20:03

        It was an unfair question you asked, then.

      • 49 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2015 at 01:19

        Guilty. I tend to be unfair at times, Duketh.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 12:55

        *laughs* That’s okay. Worry not about it, madam.

      • 51 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2015 at 16:30

        I shan’t, Sir. Thank you…*smiles*

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:32

        *smiles too*

  7. 53 Nancy Loderick January 7, 2015 at 19:49

    Well Professor,

    I guess this means you wouldn’t like my usual breakfast of:

    1 egg from a cage-free chicken
    1/4 cup egg beaters
    1/4 cup mushrooms
    1/4 cup tomato
    1/4 cup shredded cheese
    1 cup kale.

    :)

    Nancy

    • 54 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 22:04

      That sounds excellent! You don’t have any of that horrid cheese. Um…whats an egg beater?

      • 55 Nancy Loderick January 14, 2015 at 23:05

        Hey Professor,

        Well, you have quite an education ahead of you. But then that’s okay since you are a professor and all that.

        Lite shredded cheese is delicious and not at all horrible. Try some, you will like it! :)

        An egg beater, contrary to it’s name is not something to beat eggs with, but rather a catchy marketing name for egg whites. Um, I guess we could just call them egg whites now couldn’t we?

        Nancy

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:30

        Interesting! Egg whites would make more sense… Now I’m wondering if there’s more protein in the white part of the egg, or yellow.

      • 57 Nancy Loderick January 18, 2015 at 18:13

        Well Professor,

        You pose an interesting question. I did some quick Internet research and discovered that 43% of an egg’s protein comes from the yolk. Who knew?

        Also, the yolk has lots of other good stuff like “good” fat, Vitamin B.

        Nancy

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke January 19, 2015 at 03:52

        Ha! What an interest, Nancy!! That is quite interesting. Figures. I don’t like the yoke…if it’s a hard boiled egg. Now I’ll have to start eating it.

      • 59 Nancy Loderick January 20, 2015 at 17:31

        Well Professor,

        I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.”

        So yolk or not, eggs will make you stronger. ;)

        Nancy

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke January 20, 2015 at 21:21

        Aha! I do like that sound of that. So, I suppose my snack has made stronger. Not sure I want to get stronger the sudden.

      • 61 Nancy Loderick January 21, 2015 at 18:12

        Well Professor,

        If you do get stronger suddenly, you can take people by surprise. :)

        Nancy

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke January 21, 2015 at 21:45

        That’s a very good point!

  8. 63 Fatina96 January 7, 2015 at 17:12

    your imagination is much too wild dear professor :’D how can a partially cooked egg go with cheese? :”D I wonder if you ate the whole thing?

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:55

      I did! I ate the whole thing. And the horrible part, Fatina, is that I realized I didn’t like it after the first bite. *looks embarrassed* But what was I to do?

      • 65 Fatina96 January 7, 2015 at 23:07

        Gosh! You certainly are brave dude! *pats your back*
        lol, gives me the shivers.. ;p

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:02

        *laughing* Well…you mean you wouldn’t have tried even a single little bite?

      • 67 Fatina96 January 8, 2015 at 16:49

        Well, first off, i wouldn’t have made such a thing lol. secondly, i wouldn’t know what it tastes like until the first bite. and when i would’ve taken the first bite and not have liked it… I wouldn’t have dared to take a second. :p

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 22:16

        But what would you have done with it? I felt trapped, see.

      • 69 Fatina96 January 9, 2015 at 08:19

        aah, yeah that sounds like a problem. umm, if it were me, i probably would’ve fed it to the dogs, or the birds. :p

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2015 at 12:59

        *Laughing* Now, that is an awesome idea. Why didn’t I think of that? *angry a bit*

      • 71 Fatina96 January 9, 2015 at 15:29

        hahaha, well on the bright side, now you know that that combination aint good. ;)

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2015 at 23:58

        That’s a very good point, Fatina. *shudders* That’s the professorish mind for you.

      • 73 Fatina96 January 10, 2015 at 12:59

        *bows* ;)

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:09

        Aha! Professors aren’t allowed to curtsey, are they?

      • 75 Fatina96 January 10, 2015 at 21:52

        they’re not? I think thats very professor-ish actually ;)

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2015 at 19:44

        But don’t girls do that?

      • 77 Fatina96 January 12, 2015 at 15:26

        men can bow, and take their hat off.. you know, a proper bow?

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke January 12, 2015 at 20:14

        But I’ve never done one of those! How’s it done?

      • 79 Fatina96 January 12, 2015 at 20:54

        hmm, umm let me see. stand straight, and bend your upper half, like that thing you do before a karate fight starts. I, personally, find that very attractive ;) and there you have it! A perfectly gracious bow!

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 12:47

        *does it all* Well! You made that very easy, Fatina! I’m in your debt.

      • 81 Fatina96 January 13, 2015 at 17:35

        Hahaha your welcome ;)

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:35

        But I still think it will look silly!

      • 83 Fatina96 January 14, 2015 at 07:02

        aah naah, in my eyes.. its graceful! :p

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 13:01

        *does it then*

      • 85 Fatina96 January 15, 2015 at 03:31

        lol *thumbs up*

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 18:42

        Thanks, Fatina! *does it again* I must look cool.

      • 87 Fatina96 January 15, 2015 at 18:49

        hahhaha everyone does…

        BUT warning: if you overdo it, you might as well just look weird :p

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 19:04

        Oh no…what could happen? Will I break my back?

      • 89 Fatina96 January 15, 2015 at 19:10

        -_- no!! You will look weird, bowing all the time. Imagine a guy who bows every few seconds… get the image? yeah, that’s what you’ll look like. So, do it… but do it less. Don’t ruin the grace!

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:29

        That face is priceless! *laughs and tries not to* Okay, then, so I guess my next question is…when should I bow?

      • 91 Fatina96 January 16, 2015 at 18:19

        *sighs* lol, when your being thanked with somebody’s full heart and especially if its a girl, lol ;)

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:14

        Oh no! I’m scared of girls, you know.

      • 93 Fatina96 January 17, 2015 at 03:14

        hah! You should be! *laughs uncontrollably*
        i hate guys who arent any way :p

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 01:52

        I should be? But I’m a warrior…why should I be scared?

      • 95 Fatina96 January 18, 2015 at 19:23

        You just said you were… so :p

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke January 19, 2015 at 03:53

        I know. Rats. Now you know my secret. Nothing I can do about it, is there?

      • 97 Fatina96 January 20, 2015 at 12:32

        *chuckles* not the least bit :p

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke January 20, 2015 at 13:10

        Rats. I wish I could do something about it. I’m a warrior after all.

      • 99 Fatina96 January 21, 2015 at 23:50

        nothing needs to be done. we all need our weaknesses to make us stronger.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke January 23, 2015 at 02:20

        That’s a very good point. Very good point. But the ladies will laugh me to scorn!

      • 101 Fatina96 January 23, 2015 at 11:26

        *chuckles* your getting self- conscious even before trying :p

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke January 26, 2015 at 18:20

        I know! Should I shave? That’s what I’m wondering at the minute. #professorishdecisions

      • 103 Fatina96 January 28, 2015 at 10:49

        hahaha how long is your beard? and i’m not sure since a beard doesnt suit everybody so…

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 14:39

        Oh, it isn’t like that. Not long at all. Just uhh…fuzzy, you know?

      • 105 Fatina96 January 29, 2015 at 11:35

        hmm, i like the sound of that since it looks rather dreamy on some. However , the question remains…. Does it suit you?

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2015 at 21:42

        Oh, I’m not sure. How can I tell?

      • 107 Fatina96 January 31, 2015 at 05:55

        ask someone?

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2015 at 19:44

        Not sure who I’d ask…makes me nervous just thinking on it!

      • 109 Fatina96 February 2, 2015 at 11:20

        mother? sister? friend?

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke February 2, 2015 at 22:38

        I could ask my analysts?

      • 111 Fatina96 February 3, 2015 at 09:54

        haha sure go ahead…

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2015 at 19:26

        They said I shouldn’t worry about such things.

      • 113 Fatina96 February 4, 2015 at 03:57

        well, maybe they’re right. it is the personality that matters most.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke February 4, 2015 at 21:24

        And I’ve got one like a troll!

      • 115 Fatina96 February 5, 2015 at 06:12

        lol did your analysts say that?

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2015 at 00:39

        Nah, I made it up. Pretty good, huh?

      • 117 Fatina96 February 6, 2015 at 09:35

        not at all :p

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 04:12

        You must hate trolls!

      • 119 Fatina96 February 7, 2015 at 05:37

        if you say so :p

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 23:41

        Well, they can be dastardly, you know.

      • 121 Fatina96 February 9, 2015 at 10:56

        never met one and i’m the sort who never believes in fairy tales so … :p

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2015 at 22:46

        But I’m a troll! Well, not really.

      • 123 Fatina96 February 10, 2015 at 12:44

        lol, i doubt that they’d be this cute in their talking :p

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke February 10, 2015 at 21:46

        Wait…are you calling the professor cute?

      • 125 Fatina96 February 11, 2015 at 16:40

        mmm figure out for yourself :p

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke February 11, 2015 at 22:00

        *sigh of relief* Of course not. Everyone knows the professor is a warrior and he can’t be cute.

      • 127 Fatina96 February 12, 2015 at 17:29

        pffft, you make me laugh :’D

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke February 12, 2015 at 21:50

        *smiles bigly big*

  9. 129 jmerkel57 January 7, 2015 at 16:55

    Just reading about your pepper jack, partially cooked egg and bagel sandwich gave me gas.

    • 130 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:55

      *laughs* I know…twas a horrible mistake, wasn’t it?

  10. 131 L. Marie January 7, 2015 at 16:36

    How were the eggs cooked? Were they scrambled?
    I agree with Simply Skeptical. Cheddar’s great with eggs. I like pepper jack on a quesadilla.

    • 132 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:55

      It was an over easy egg, I believe. Horrible, huh?

      Yes! I should have had a quesadilla! Right on, Linda.

  11. 133 Debbie January 7, 2015 at 15:39

    My son loves pepper jack cheese, but on sub sandwiches, not eggs. And I’m not sure, but something tells me a partially-cooked egg plus something as tart as pepper jack just wouldn’t “sit” well on one’s stomach right before bedtime. Better bet would be toasting the bagel with a bit of mild American or cheddar. Did you have nightmares, too??

    • 134 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:54

      *laughing* You’re so right. And Domer has good tastes, I’d say. It works perfectly on a sub sandwich. Susan, recommended cheese and rye…that would have probably been safer, huh?

      Yes! Horrible nightmares about food. *hangs head in shame* I wonder what one should get if one is hungry right before bed.

      • 135 Debbie January 7, 2015 at 22:08

        Protein, like an egg, is hard to digest at night. Better to stick with cereal and milk, toast, a muffin, walnuts, banana, popcorn, yogurt, even a couple of cookies. Definitely NOT caffeine or something really spicy. Does that help?? Sorry about the nightmares, though!

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 22:12

        *laughing* That does help! So…protein shouldn’t be eaten late…I never knew that, Debbie!

  12. 137 Hazy January 7, 2015 at 15:15

    Mmm… bagel! Was it a scrambled egg?

    I’ve never tasted pepper jack cheese. Not good?

    The last time I made a grilled cheese sandwich, I used emmental + gouda or havarti. It was yummers, but those cheeses are quite expensive! Won’t be buying those again anytime soon. *laughs*

    • 138 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:52

      No, it was a whole one…what think you of that?

      Well, it is…it’s peppery…and…too strong at night! That must’ve been the problem.

      I’ve never heard of emmental or havarti! Wow. I’m so outdated.

      • 139 Hazy January 8, 2015 at 14:02

        A whole egg! Like sunny side up or was it hard-boiled?

        Oh, that pepper jack probably was the culprit! Maybe try scrambled egg then medium cheddar or swiss instead of pepper jack. That might be a better tasting snack! *laughs*

        Or you can use emmental or havarti, just to try something new! Emmental is a kind of swiss cheese, I think.

        It’s not cheese, but do you like jalapeno?

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 21:56

        Over easy, I think! *gags*

        That sounds much better. The other dadblamery was a horrid professor concoction!

        They sound good…and their names are a wonder and a half!

        I do!

      • 141 Hazy January 10, 2015 at 17:20

        I know, right? Such funny sounding names.

        I recently tried a jalapeno popper grilled cheese sammy. It was so yummers! Have you tried one?

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:15

        They sure are!

        I haven’t, but wow does it sound good! Must get one. *looks about*

  13. 143 Susan P January 7, 2015 at 15:06

    Pepper jack is never a good midnight snack. Too many ways to go wrong. Then there was the not well cooked egg. Yeah no. I’d stick with a grilled cheese sandwich on rye.

    • 144 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:52

      *face brightens* That sounds excellent! Why didn’t you tell me about that sooner? What is pepper jack good for, Susan?

      • 145 Susan P January 7, 2015 at 21:59

        Tacos and melted cheese dip.

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 22:11

        Yum! Can I have some?

      • 147 Susan P January 7, 2015 at 22:55

        Have at it, Professor.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:02

        How do you make cheese dip?

      • 149 Susan P January 8, 2015 at 14:37

        Well, if it is American cheese, a simple nod of the head will be fine. If you are visiting royalty, you need to do a proper dip in front of the thrown.

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 22:07

        Oh, this is complicated. A proper dip…never heard of something so scary sounding!

      • 151 Susan P January 8, 2015 at 22:31

        Not to be confused with a skinny dip.

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2015 at 12:42

        I’m not sure what that is. *holds ears*

      • 153 Susan P January 9, 2015 at 23:40

        That’s a cheap ice cream..

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 00:09

        Umm…blah!

      • 155 Susan P January 10, 2015 at 11:53

        You don’t like ice cream?

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:08

        No! I love it. IT’s just that…

      • 157 Susan P January 10, 2015 at 21:18

        What?

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2015 at 19:41

        It’s far too cold for ice cream, I think.

      • 159 Susan P January 11, 2015 at 21:13

        Did you move to Portugal or something? Ice cream is as American as baseball. Except you can eat ice cream in winter.

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke January 12, 2015 at 20:02

        I know…but doesn’t it freeze your tongue off?

      • 161 Susan P January 12, 2015 at 21:17

        You’re thinking of licking a frozen pole.

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 12:49

        I wouldn’t do that! *imagines all sorts of horrible consequences*

      • 163 Susan P January 13, 2015 at 13:04

        One of my nephews told his younger brother to do that…ouch.

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:17

        Ooo…did he hurt his tongue…badly?

      • 165 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 00:00

        He was hurting, and his brothers were hurting too when all was said and done. But he would probably have done it again.

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:53

        That’s the spirit! He has spirit. That’s kinda cool.

      • 167 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 13:11

        And kind of dumb.

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:13

        *laughing lots* True…did you tell him that?

      • 169 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 02:35

        No – I didn’t hear about it until years later.

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 18:39

        Well, I’m sure he wouldn’t do it now.

      • 171 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 19:13

        I wish I was certain.

      • 172 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:31

        See, it’s something I might try, if I tempted myself lots.

      • 173 Susan P January 16, 2015 at 21:55

        I can’t recommend it. Really. If you really want to get up to some tomfoolery, you have enough imagination to do better than that!

      • 174 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:15

        That’s true. It would be a bit below the professor, wouldn’t it?

      • 175 Susan P January 17, 2015 at 13:24

        It would not be smart.

      • 176 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 01:56

        True…but…

      • 177 Susan P January 29, 2015 at 14:48

        But what?

      • 178 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2015 at 21:54

        I’m interested nonetheless!

      • 179 Susan P January 29, 2015 at 23:49

        Do you think the PLeRs would fall for it?

      • 180 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2015 at 21:18

        A few of them would, yes. Like maybe Schwarz… You might be able to convince Mr. R to do it, don’t you suppose?

      • 181 Susan P January 31, 2015 at 00:21

        With great fun.

  14. 182 walt walker January 7, 2015 at 14:51

    Well, no matter how bad it was, I’m sure it was better than one of those McMuffin thingies from Ronald McDonald’s. You might as well put the bottom of your shoe on a bagel before you eat one of those. But perhaps they don’t have Ronald McDonald’s in the PL and you’ve no idea of that which I speak.

    • 183 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:50

      No, I’ve had one. Aren’t they really small, too? I mean, dreadfully little?

  15. 184 FictionFan January 7, 2015 at 14:39

    See, where you made your first mistake was in choosing a bagel. What’s the point of bagels? I reckon they only exist to remind us of how awful the world would be if there was no chocolate cake in it. The hole is the best part. (Unlike doughnuts, where the hole is an injustice.)

    Then pepperjack cheese is clearly some American monstrosity, so that was never going to work well, was it? *shakes head sadly* So the only potentially good bit was the egg, and you brutally destroyed it. Were you working from Ruber’s best-selling ‘Semi-Poisonous Meals for One’, by any chance?

    • 185 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:50

      *laughing lots and lots* The whole? Best part? What could you possibly dislike about bagels? They’re crunchy, tasty, and crunchy! Unless you have yours with fish. Doughnuts aren’t healthy, though. *shakes head sadly*

      But pepper jack is sometimes good…haven’t you ever had it? I didn’t destroy the egg! *laughs* You should’ve cooked it for me then!

      • 186 FictionFan January 8, 2015 at 02:29

        But should bread-y things be crunchy, we ask ourselves? And we answer ‘No!!’ Fish?!? What an appalling idea! Oh aren’t they? Remind me again which one of us was having food-inspired nightmares? *shakes head very sadly*

        I don’t even know what it could possibly be. Pepper and cheese I understand, but jack? Jack-rabbit? Jack-hammer? Jack of Hearts? The possibilities are endless. Yes, because I live to cook for menfolk… *flounces off to nearest feminist rally*

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:05

        We? Goodness. I think there’s two FEFs. Yeah, don’t they have it with some sort of pink fish spread? In truth, I don’t know much about it. *laughs* Okay, I’ll go have a bunch of donuts, then.

        That’s such a good point. Jack…I’ve no idea what it stands for. Probably the same as Colby-jack. *laughing* I knew you were going to say that. It was a challenge see. You thought you could do better! Making fun of a poor professor.

      • 188 FictionFan January 8, 2015 at 16:01

        I’m following the Professorial cloning technique. There should be hundreds of me soon. Nor me! Sounds like cat food…

        Colby-jack? Is that a baseball player? *laughing* Are you calling me…predictable? The sisterhood will be furious…and there’s nothing scarier than a bunch of angry feminists… *fears for the Professor*

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 22:10

        Wow! Hundreds…that’s… I bet it is cat food. *gags*

        You don’t know that cheese either? *laughing and laughing* It’s white and yellow–at the same time. They won’t get to me, ’cause FEF will protect me. She’s a warrior, you know.

      • 190 FictionFan January 9, 2015 at 02:30

        I think I might call them all Mic…

        I think you’re just making them up! Yellow and white at the same time? A likely story! What’s it made from – chameleon milk? She is! And she…might…

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2015 at 12:49

        I do not make it up! It’s such a common cheese… *wonders if there’s cheese in Scotland* Do you know what American cheese is?

        Might? I think I need more of a guarantee.

      • 192 FictionFan January 9, 2015 at 18:04

        The Scots invented cheese! Hmm…is American cheese made from the milk of the bald eagle? Or perhaps it’s coloured red, white and blue…

        Oh, OK, I’ll protect you from them this time, but only ‘cos I’m sweet!

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 00:06

        Oh, huff-hum. You say they invented everything. I’m not sure how it’s made! *laughing at FEF’s explanations* But it’s yellow! And gooey.

        This time? I was expecting…well, just more.

      • 194 FictionFan January 10, 2015 at 17:19

        Do you mean you don’t believe me?!? But I freely admit, I don’t think we’ve ever invented anything that’s yellow and gooey… *admiring look*

        Well… since it’s you… OK. But don’t upset them too often – my peashooter may run out of ammo…

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke January 10, 2015 at 21:15

        You’re looking admiringly at something that’s yellow and gooey?!

        Bet you’re their boss!

      • 196 FictionFan January 11, 2015 at 17:56

        No, no! I was looking admiringly at America – the richest nation in the world, most technologically advanced, the only nation ever to land a man on the moon – and what do they do with all these advantages? Invent gooey, yellow cheese! Cool!

        I’m a renegade… I’ve started up my own faction. There’s only one of us at the moment, but I’m sure many others will join up soon…

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2015 at 19:51

        *laughs* Very nice. *starts looking admiringly too* Pretty cool, huh?

        I’ll join!

      • 198 FictionFan January 12, 2015 at 13:35

        I think you’ll make a great feminist! And won’t the sisterhood be jealous? *beams proudly* I shall send you a badge…what shall we put on it?

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke January 12, 2015 at 20:10

        “The Destroyer”, please.

  16. 200 Alastair Savage January 7, 2015 at 12:54

    Did you use the egg to fill that pesky hole in the middle of the bagel?

    • 201 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:44

      I should have, but I didn’t. Why is there a hole?

      • 202 Alastair Savage January 8, 2015 at 08:01

        Oh come on, professor, the hole’s the best part!

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:19

        Well, maybe I’m not seasoning it right. What do you usually put on it?

  17. 204 PorterGirl January 7, 2015 at 12:44

    Oh dear, Professor! You see, the snack sounds pretty good at first thought. It sounds to me as if the egg wasn’t cooked enough *shudders* I fear uncooked eggs. Pepper jack cheese might not be the best bed-fellow of egg. A nice Swiss cheese might work instead.

    • 205 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 21:42

      Yes! What was I thinking, Lucy? Argh! That pepper jack was awful. Just awful. You’ve never had raw eggs, then?

      • 206 PorterGirl January 8, 2015 at 08:49

        I have tried them once but they made my tummy jiggly. Never again!

      • 207 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 13:19

        They sure do that… *makes a face and dies*

      • 208 PorterGirl January 8, 2015 at 14:16

        An extreme reaction, Professor!

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke January 8, 2015 at 21:59

        *laughs* I know. I’m extreme these days.

  18. 210 Simply Skeptical January 7, 2015 at 12:14

    I must admit a partially cooked egg with pepper jack cheese doesn’t sound too good. Of course cheese goes bad, but this was probably not the cause of the repulsion. Perhaps a different type of cheese such as American or mild cheddar would be better for those breakfast meals.

    • 211 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 12:39

      I think you’re probably right. But it was a late night snack. Hey, do you suppose I was delirious?

      • 212 Simply Skeptical January 7, 2015 at 21:01

        Indubitably…..;-)

      • 213 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2015 at 22:07

        What a cool word. I should memorize it.
