The Professor Confronted

So, this professor was walking down a street.

You know, one of those streets that has stores a bit off the sidewalk.

It was a little town. I probably should have said that first.

Anyway, I was walking along (or down) a street when I ran into a fellow and a lady. They were around the same age, I think. And much younger than the professor.

(But everyone is younger than the professor. I’ll soon be…I forget. But it’s up there.)

Anyway for seconds, they stopped me. With words, of course.

“Where you going?” the lady asked.

I should stop calling her a lady about now.

The professor didn’t answer right away. And that’s the thing to do, when confronted.

This professor just stared at her (glancing at the fellow) and raised one eyebrow.

I’ve heard this subtle moment of mine inspires fear. I’m not sure if it’s true, but I think it is.

“I asked you a question!” she said.

“Yeah,” the fellow said, “answer her.”

“Well, to be honest,” this professor said, “I was actually not on my way to see either of you two.”

They seemed shocked, dismayed, and terribly angry.

The woman–who was smoking–threw her cigarette on the ground and stamped it angrily with her heel.

Once she was done, I repeated the motion (only I was more vicious, I think) just to prove to them that I could stamp harder.

After all, I’m a warrior.

They laughed at this.

“Your weird!” the woman said.

The fellow shook his head. “Definitely weird, dude.”

The professor moved on; I didn’t have time to keep on having speaks.

I looked back once, and saw that the duo had caught another fellow.

Maybe I should have been a bit fiercer, and messed up their operation for good.

Oh well.

    Punks. They need to grow up. Seriously.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 01:54

      Sure do! I thought about electrocuting them.

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 January 28, 2015 at 03:15

        You’d better not. There are better ways of dealing with them. (Like setting Captain America’s dog on them!)

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 14:32

        He has a dog?!

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 January 28, 2015 at 15:10

        …I guess. Unless someone else foisted their dog off on him?

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2015 at 23:48

        Nah, he works alone, I think.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 January 29, 2015 at 13:15

        No, but he’d be a great babysitter! And he’s the only person on the Avengers who started as a team player.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2015 at 21:48

        That’s true. Took Stark a while to get into it. I saw a bit of the movie yesterday!

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 January 30, 2015 at 13:08

        Yay! You know, I liked it a bit, bit and little bits. And more than little bits, too. ;-)
        And yes, it did, didn’t it? I loved the scene at the end of the movie where Rogers and Stark were shaking hands…

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2015 at 21:49

        Great PA! Yeah, they finally made friends!

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 January 31, 2015 at 13:01

        Whee! :-D

  2. 12 Catherine January 17, 2015 at 21:40

    How cleverly you handled that situation, professor! They deserve to be punished, though.

    • 13 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 02:12

      They do! What should be done, do you suppose?

      • 14 Catherine January 20, 2015 at 03:39

        I would suggest sending your vicious hounds, but you might want to keep them in case something worse happens to happen.

      • 15 Professor VJ Duke January 20, 2015 at 13:06

        Happens to happen…that is awesome! And a good point. I think, Catherine, you’re a strategist. I’m just a warrior. Strategists think lots and lots.

      • 16 Catherine January 22, 2015 at 02:23

        *curtsies* Why thank you! I like to think I think lots and lots…but then sometimes strategists can’t get anything done, because they might not have any warriors to carry their intricate plans out!

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke January 23, 2015 at 02:34

        True. And as a secret: Hector didn’t carry out plans well.

      • 18 Catherine February 3, 2015 at 03:04

        Was Hector a planner? or a warrior?

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

        Well, a bit of both. He was a great chap overall.

      • 20 Catherine February 6, 2015 at 04:18

        Well then, I’m sad he couldn’t carry out plans well! I’m afraid I can relate to him sometimes.

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 04:06

        And me too…

      • 22 Catherine February 9, 2015 at 03:26

        What a shame.

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2015 at 22:35

        Would you’ve liked him better than Paris, do you suppose?

      • 24 Catherine February 12, 2015 at 02:43

        I think so, because Paris wasn’t really the smartest fellow, was he?

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke February 12, 2015 at 21:19

        He was dumber than dumb! Plus, he was mean.

      • 26 Catherine February 20, 2015 at 02:45

        Very true! Hector was much nicer.

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke February 21, 2015 at 20:02

        He was. And cooler.

  3. 28 Louis from VA January 15, 2015 at 01:16

    Odd…
    Very odd indeed.
    Is this town known for such occurrences?

    • 29 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:31

      I don’t know…I mean, it’s supposed to be “okay”. Maybe they were just kidding around?

  4. 30 Nancy Loderick January 14, 2015 at 22:53

    Well professor,

    You certainly put the man and lady in their place, didn’t you? I have heard that when confronted, one should act “weird” and perhaps the confronter will get scared and run away. :)

    Nancy

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:29

      That’s a very good approach, for sure, Nancy. *thinks* I didn’t have to get violent either!

  5. 32 Susan P January 13, 2015 at 19:50

    This blog is getting scary violent. I hope you keep safe.

    • 33 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:37

      My life is violent. Remember. I’m an agent, Susan.

      • 34 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 00:04

        Like Maxwell Smart. I remember.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:54

        Humph noodles! But he’s…a mess!!!

      • 36 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 13:13

        And your point being….?

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:14

        The professor isn’t! Is he…?

      • 38 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 02:39

        The Professor is much classier than Maxwell Smart.

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

        That’s the spirit! *puts on bowtie*

      • 40 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 19:15

        Do you have your ataché

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:32

        I don’t! You can give me one, though.

      • 42 Susan P January 16, 2015 at 21:57

        I would like that, but all I have is a backpack on wheels. I’m not using it currently, so I would be glad to lend it to you.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:16

        Would Harry be okay with it?

      • 44 Susan P January 17, 2015 at 13:27

        Harry doesn’t use it.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 01:57

        Harry’s a great chap.

      • 46 Susan P January 29, 2015 at 14:47

        He is. He is indeed.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2015 at 21:53

        *nods*

  6. 48 John W. Howell January 13, 2015 at 17:47

    This why a cane is a good think to carry. Instead of stamping harder you could have rapped your cane on the sidewalk and demanded silence. Once silence was achieved you could have whispered “I am an artist.” They would have parted and let you continue on your way since no one wants to mess with an artist. (or even wants to know one)

    • 49 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:37

      *laughing too much* That would have so worked! Do you suppose they’d run quickly quick?

      • 50 John W. Howell January 13, 2015 at 22:51

        They would have been shocked to silence.

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

        I’ll have to try this. Plus bring DS along.

  7. 52 InfiniteZip January 13, 2015 at 17:10

    In wrote you a piece about warriors…

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:34

      Nice! *heads over*

  8. 54 InfiniteZip January 13, 2015 at 16:50

    Smoking is bad…I wouldn’t have been walking, I would have rode the steed and ran them down like the currs they are….what is a curr anyway? And given her a ticket for littering to boot!

    • 55 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:33

      That’s a good question. We’ll have to ask Salami. Maybe a stray dog of sorts? Rode your steed! Nice. Was it a unicorn?

      • 56 InfiniteZip January 14, 2015 at 10:20

        No, the unicorn only comes out at night. I rode the stallion.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 13:03

        Stallion! Wow. Bet he was powerful.

      • 58 InfiniteZip January 14, 2015 at 14:02

        Yes, he is want to see his picture?

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:17

        Love to!

      • 60 InfiniteZip January 14, 2015 at 14:05

        Written for my favorite professor

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:17

        *bows* Many thanks! Love it lots. But…Zippy, is the professor a romantic, do you think?

      • 62 InfiniteZip January 15, 2015 at 10:36

        Of course, and a mighty warrior. Sometimes more with the pen than the sword though.✒️🍴

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 18:44

        The pen…can I use one well, do you suppose?

      • 64 InfiniteZip January 16, 2015 at 10:15

        Most definitely, you are mighty with one.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:03

        *bows* I feel spicy the sudden!

      • 66 InfiniteZip January 17, 2015 at 13:58

        Like cayenne?

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 02:00

        A bit oranger.

  9. 68 Debbie January 13, 2015 at 15:25

    You can raise one eyebrow? Wow, I’m impressed! That’s a threatening move if you can pull it off — and I’d say you did, or they’d have been writing this story (perish the thought!)

    If the professor insists on wandering down (along) streets in little towns all by himself, he really should go armed with something like that katana. Two versus one is always uncomfortable! And those two were up to no good, definitely. You’ll probably see their mug-shots hanging in some post office before long (if they’re not already there!)

    Be more careful, PVJ!

    • 69 Susan P January 13, 2015 at 19:48

      I can raise one eyebrow, too. And I can wiggle my ears.

      • 70 Debbie January 13, 2015 at 20:31

        Really?? Only my dog can wiggle his ears — that’s amazing!!

      • 71 Susan P January 13, 2015 at 21:51

        Laughing. My grandfather did it when I was growing up and I practiced and practiced until (and I still have no idea how it happened) I got it down. My elementary school students were always amazed and boggled. I used it as leverage. ;)

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:38

        Leverage…for what, pray?

      • 73 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 00:06

        Me: If everyone is finished the assignment in good time I will wiggle my ears.

        Students: Yay!

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:54

        *laughing* They loved it that much? I admit, I’d like to see it.

      • 75 Susan P January 14, 2015 at 13:14

        It’s always a good idea to have some talents.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:14

        You have many, Miss Susan.

      • 77 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 02:41

        Awww, shucks. Thank you. That was thoughtful.

        What a neatio tune. Never heard it before, I fear.

      • 79 Susan P January 15, 2015 at 19:16

        Well now you have.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:32

        *bows* Thank you for introducing us, madam.

      • 81 Susan P January 16, 2015 at 21:58

        *curtsies* You are most welcome, sir.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:17

        I should curtsie sometime. Fatina said professors can do that sort of thing. I’ll have to ask Walt.

      • 83 Susan P January 17, 2015 at 13:28

        Fatina? What does she have to do with it. Now if you said, Elsa I could understand.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 01:58

        Why Elsa?

      • 85 Susan P January 29, 2015 at 14:47

        Because Elsa is a Queen.

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2015 at 21:53

        I refuse to acknowledge her envoy.

      • 87 Susan P January 29, 2015 at 23:47

        Oh, but she’s so cool.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2015 at 21:17

        Cooler than Rapunzel?

      • 89 Susan P January 31, 2015 at 00:18

        Yes, cooler.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2015 at 19:39

        And Belle?

      • 91 Susan P February 1, 2015 at 21:49

        Belle who?

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke February 2, 2015 at 22:36

        From Beauty and the Beast!

      • 93 Susan P February 2, 2015 at 23:50

        Oohhhh. That Belle. As long as the beast doesn’t care.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2015 at 19:16

        I killed him.

      • 95 Susan P February 3, 2015 at 22:09

        Never say it! What will Belle do?

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke February 4, 2015 at 21:13

        Probably read a book–as is her wont.

      • 97 Susan P February 4, 2015 at 22:46

        Likely she won’t even miss him.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2015 at 00:29

        *nods* She’s fickle is what!

      • 99 Susan P February 7, 2015 at 00:09

        But what will become of her?

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 04:28

        In the end, she’ll be quite happy.

      • 101 Susan P February 7, 2015 at 12:51

        You’d like to believe that, wouldn’t you?

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke February 7, 2015 at 23:42

        Well, I think I would. But I like sad endings too, don’t you?

      • 103 Susan P February 8, 2015 at 00:12

        Sometimes it is the only logical ending.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke February 9, 2015 at 01:17

        *nods* That’s so true.

    • 105 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:31

      *laughs proudly or triumphantly* Yes! I can. It’s very scary looking too. Bet it would scare Dallas!

      That’s so true. But…what if the police caught me with my katana?

  10. 106 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2015 at 15:20

    Maybe you should remove the button on your shirt that says “Mayor 2015″…

    I bet it would be hard not to stop and talk to you….you should have made her eat that cigarette, Duke.

    • 107 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:29

      *looks at shirt* I don’t see it…hey! Someone most have stole it!

      Eat it? Wow. That’s quite vicious of you. But I kinda like it, you know.

      • 108 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 14, 2015 at 02:28

        I knew it! You should be Mayor, if you aren’t already. Who could have stolen it?

        Isn’t that what one does to teach a lesson? I’ve heard of such lessons, you see. I wouldn’t teach it that way, but maybe you could pull it off.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:59

        It’s not “stolen” it’s “stole”, dadblameit and a few!!! I’d be a horrible mayor.

        Well, I’m far too sweet to do that.

      • 110 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 14, 2015 at 21:16

        Ahhh…sorry… Yes, a horrible mayor indeed. Seems you need a nap.

        Obviously not!

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:28

        And some orange juice! With a cherry.

      • 112 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 15, 2015 at 03:30

        You’re going to turn into an orange! Tis a lot of sugar, you know. *passes you the cherry*

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

        Is it? Well…what should I do then?

      • 114 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 15, 2015 at 20:49

        Well, it can be fine, if it is freshly squeezed orange juice.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:38

        I’m going to get fat, aren’t I?

      • 116 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 16, 2015 at 05:13

        No. You’ll be fine.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 01:59

        Can you be sure?

      • 118 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 17, 2015 at 04:03

        Well, can you promise not to drink it all day long?

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 01:54

        I work out enough, so I should be fine.

  11. 120 sonmi upon the Cloud January 13, 2015 at 15:12

    I think you did a marvellous job Professor! Confound them by behaving in a way that confounds them. Because they were morons of the highest degree. *nods and shakes his hand*.

    – sonmi upon the Cloudy

    • 121 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:29

      Thanks Sonmi! Do you suppose you could maybe rain on them?

      • 122 sonmi upon the Cloud January 13, 2015 at 22:33

        All over their sorry parade. *winks*

        – sonmi upon the Cloud

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:38

        That’s perfect! What can I do to thank you?

      • 124 sonmi upon the Cloud January 13, 2015 at 22:43

        Read my latest post from beginning to end without falling asleep. *laughs a lot*

        – sonmi upon the Cloud

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:52

        Okay…why? Is there something wrong with it?

      • 126 sonmi upon the Cloud January 14, 2015 at 14:58

        I hope not! I just enjoy your opinions Professor. And it is……hmm….quite long.

        – sonmi smiling upon the Cloud

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:18

        I shall take a look…

    Hey Professor!!
    Firstly I would like to say Happy New Year! I hope it’s going to be a great year for you.
    Secondly, you handled the confrontation well….and I agree! You should of been fiercer…..😄

    • 129 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:26

      Rolain!!!! Hey!!! Happy New Year to you as well! It’s going great for me so far, I’d say. How about for you? What’s up?

      Fiercer. Next time, I’ll battle cry or something.

      • 130 rolerrol January 14, 2015 at 04:52

        Battle cry sounds perfect!!!
        The year has started well too….being busy with work but have lots of plans for 2015. It’s going to be a great year!

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 13:00

        Awesome, then!

        Sounds wonderful. Traveling anywhere?

      • 132 rolerrol January 14, 2015 at 17:17

        Not sure yet…..If things go according to plan I will be in Australia around October but that’s all I know……I will am eager to go though.

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:26

        That’s so neatio! Long plane flight, though.

  13. 134 L. Marie January 13, 2015 at 14:49

    At least the last stamp was yours. Always get the last stamp like the last word.

    • 135 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:26

      Very good point! The last stamp was mine…and it was spicy!

  14. 136 desertdweller29 January 13, 2015 at 14:38

    I’m laughing hard at your tags, Professor: “Stamping smoking things”, “how to deal with attackers”…. The eyebrows can invoke a great deal of fear. They are a highly underestimated weapon. Kudos to you for using them correctly!

    • 137 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:26

      *Laughs too* I can never come up with good tags.

      Thank you! And you should see the professorish ones… *raises them both!*

  15. 138 FictionFan January 13, 2015 at 14:13

    I’ts just super that you can still stamp so hard at your age! D’you know, that whole scene reminded me very much of the flamenco – all that stamping. Were you playing Spanish guitar at the time?

    • 139 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:25

      I’m a dunadain–like Aragorn, remember. I wasn’t! Not a guitar to be found. I don’t think I’ve ever watched a flamenco dance. Bet it’s funny looking.

      • 140 FictionFan January 14, 2015 at 00:17

        This is true! *thinks of Professor and Aragorn at the same time…and faints AND swoons* Well, see, if you’d had your guitar you could have calmed them with music – or hit them over the head with it, whichever you preferred. Yes, you did, when I linked to a vid…didn’t you? It’s very manly, you know – at least, the man’s bit is.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 12:56

        You can’t faint and swoon! *laughing* But Aragorn already has Steve’s daughter, remember. Hit them over the head? With a beautiful guitar? *hugs it protectively* Never, madam! Never!!!

        Oh, that’s right. I remember! Umm…but…wouldn’t you rather do a bull fight?

      • 142 FictionFan January 14, 2015 at 15:31

        Why can’t I? I found it quite an enjoyable experience! Yeah, but he’s bound to dump her as soon as he meets her Dad. Oh, OK – borrow Nick’s drumsticks then…

        Well, I think the flamenco may be based on the whole bullfighting ritual stuff. I suspect the man is the matador and the woman represents the cape – hence the red dress…

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 01:23

        You can’t! Forbidden! Dishonor! That’s a very good point. Or, he might pop off the dad. You can do it with Nick’s sticks… *kisses guitar*

        Really! I didn’t know that. A cape. It’s better than being a matador.

      • 144 FictionFan January 15, 2015 at 17:15

        Oh, it can’t be dishonoUrable to swoon at the Professor – that just wouldn’t be fair! It’s not as if us girlies can prevent it, you know, you know. Does your guitar have a name?

        Well, I’m not 100% sure if it’s true – maybe the girl is the bull! Good noodles! What’s wrong with matadors?? They’re manlier than the manliest thing you can think of! Jealous again, eh?

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2015 at 19:01

        *laughs* Oh, girls swoon if they see a cute frog! My guitar. No, I never named it. Should I?

        The bull? *laughing lots* You have a point there. Matador…the name is so insulting…don’t you think?

      • 146 FictionFan January 16, 2015 at 01:37

        Oh, I’d never be so rude as to compare you to a frog, however cute! I think so – it seems wrong somehow to be kissing it if you don’t even know its name…

        No – I think it’s manly…and dramatic! What do you have against it?

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2015 at 02:49

        *laughs and shakes head* The things you find cute! I never thought about it like that…that does change things. Do you it minds that I kiss it?

        Nothing really. I’m just being professorish for your benefit.

      • 148 FictionFan January 16, 2015 at 17:23

        It was you who said the slimy thing was cute!!! I was just being polite! No, I suspect it’s very pleased… *furiously jealous face*

        *laughs lot* Thank you – greatly appreciated!

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2015 at 02:10

        Oh…dadblameit. You’re right. Well, that’s cause I was thinking that’s what you’d say! Oh, you can’t be jealous of a guitar… *kisses it again*

        *bows*

      • 150 FictionFan January 17, 2015 at 17:02

        I’m always right! *growls*

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2015 at 02:08

        Have some pink lemonade.

      • 152 FictionFan January 18, 2015 at 16:16

        Pink lemons, eh? Americans!!

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke January 19, 2015 at 03:50

        I’ve never had it either.

  16. 154 Warrior January 13, 2015 at 14:02

    Weird.

    • 155 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:24

      Really? Warby? Really?

  17. 156 Hazy January 13, 2015 at 13:54

    Well, that was just plain rude of that woman. Do you think she knows smoking isn’t a good habit?

    I bet the professor stomped the light out of that ciggy! I hate it when people throw their ciggy on the ground then stomp halfheartedly, leaving it undead.

    Do you reckon something strange might be going on? First scam callers and now rude streetwalker-stopper-cigarette stompers…

    • 157 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:24

      I don’t know! Someone should tell her. Would you?

      Yes! And then it smolders and smolders and smolders!

      It’s definitely possible. I think I’ll bring DS down that way!

      • 158 Hazy January 18, 2015 at 05:07

        Sure! Would this sound ok? “Hey, rude woman, here’s a nicotine gum. Chew on that instead.”

        Oh, sounds like a good idea. You’re stealthy, so I don’t think you’d get caught by DS… would you?

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke January 19, 2015 at 03:44

        That’s perfect. *laughs at Hazy’s viciousness*

        Well…he does have incredible senses of smell.

      • 160 Hazy February 15, 2015 at 06:41

        Was it that vicious? *laughs* I thought I was being nice enough…

        You can mask your smell, I reckon. Or at least try to. Maybe the scientist has something for that.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke February 16, 2015 at 13:49

        I’m hoping he does…he has all sorts of things, I hear.

  18. 162 PorterGirl January 13, 2015 at 13:26

    I say, this is an escapade and a half! The little town sounds quite nice at first, with the mention of shops, but the fellows there are beastly. You did the right thing about being confronted; a carefully raised eyebrow can bring down empires. I thought for a moment that your fierce warrior stomping had put them right, but there they go, accosting other chaps. The scoundrels!

    • 163 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:20

      Whatever should be done with them? I’m thinking someone should spook them. Or someone should just bring DS down that way.

      • 164 PorterGirl January 14, 2015 at 08:51

        DS would put a stop to their shenanigans, quick-sharp. Or send Schwarz and MM in disguise to banter with them for a while before scaring them and shouting BOO! Or something like that. I would just spank them.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2015 at 13:02

        *laughs* A spank would be tops. But all the options are quite spicy. *thinks about going back with Schwarz*

      • 166 PorterGirl January 14, 2015 at 13:06

        If they are there every day, you can try a variety of options of the course of a week. Although, one encounter with Schwarz might send them fleeing!

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

        That’s true. Schwarz can do that. *shudders just thinking on it*

  19. 168 walt walker January 13, 2015 at 13:19

    Now you were not smoking, I take it. Just stomping? So I picture you looking a bit like Harpo Marx in this one. Pantomiming anger.

    How rude of them! They ought to be busted up, this wicked game of theirs.

    • 169 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2015 at 22:18

      *nods* Right on. Only, I wasn’t wearing a golden wig with curls. I had my top hat on. And I pulverized the cigarette. *proud face*

      I know. Perhaps the Goths could get them?
