“He’s Showing Resistance!”

It’s said that singing and laughing lighten the soul; it’s a lie. I’ve heard singing and laughing that would damn the soul.

~ V. Shnodgrate, Renowned PL Poet

UntitledNow, escaping from a palace is a hard thing to accomplish.

I tell you this plainly so that if you ever find yourself in such a position, you’re not fooled like I was.

It’s not a straight shot down the stairs to a door.

No, it’s more complicated.

This professor will spare you the boring details.

But here’s the thing: I hid in Prince Beef’s palace, running here, running there, for a full five hours before I found an exit.

And it was a window.

What made things goodly, was the fact that the prince had sent his guards out of the palace to search for me.

That’s why it makes complete sense as soon as I exited through that window (crashing to the ground) I was captured again.

“Hands in the air!” shouted one guard.

Another guard: “The prince said we could shoot him on sight.”

The other guard, rolling his eyes: “That’s if he resisted. Does he look to be resisting to you?”

That first guard studied me.

Now, here’s the thing: There were two guards. Two guards only.

So, the professor did a diversion technique.

I am skilled in those things, mind you.

“Look oh my!”

And I pointed behind them.

It didn’t work.

“He’s showing resistance!” the first guard screamed, leveling his rifle at me.

The second guard did, in fact, turn.

Rats.

A shot rang out and I hit the ground.

Everything descended into darkness, then.

Last thing the professor heard: “Hehaha.”

Daddy Salami.

    I’m playing post catch-up. Looks like you’re in a pickle! Sounds like resistance is futile, like it was with the Borg.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:15

      *laughs* Very true! Well, they actually shot me. Can you believe.

  2. 3 Simply Skeptical December 16, 2015 at 01:20

    your diversion didn’t work. Pointing up never fails… laughs

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:26

      Well, if half worked! I must come up with a technique for two people.

  3. 5 John W. Howell December 15, 2015 at 19:52

    Hope you were wearing that bulletproof vest. I know you thought it unstylish, but I’m just sayin’.

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 20:01

      I…wasn’t. Can you believe it? Now, they’ll find your gun. If they search me. Also, they’ll get the katana.

      • 7 John W. Howell December 15, 2015 at 20:07

        Cheeze. A fine kettle of fish.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:19

        I know. I’m hopping the 9 can solve it.

      • 9 John W. Howell December 17, 2015 at 21:40

        Me too.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:23

        If not, I need something new.

      • 11 John W. Howell December 18, 2015 at 23:23

        New maybe the choice.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2015 at 14:14

        Ar-15.

      • 13 John W. Howell December 21, 2015 at 18:02

        Good choice.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke December 22, 2015 at 15:37

        Oh goody.

      • 15 John W. Howell December 22, 2015 at 17:50

        Yes

  4. 16 Lady Dunamis December 15, 2015 at 17:41

    Bows head to Schnodgrate**
    Dude is deep!
    Now back to you PVJ….
    I must say that I had an inkling that you were going to bring Daddy Salami into this. Call it intuition or genius. Or my wonder powers were activated. En-tee-way…However, now that you appear to be wounded how doth thou slither out of this one?

    • 17 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 20:01

      *laughs* I didn’t bring him! He just showed up. Or…you brought him!! I was shot, you know.

      • 18 Lady Dunamis December 15, 2015 at 20:11

        I know you were shot and I wish you a punchy recovery of which might be filled with madness, mayhem, and mischievousness.

        Mind you, if you recover too easily we will get bored with you and look for another professor so make it worth our while…

        I must confess though since following your blog, two years now??, That you have never been shot, so that is a first, expecting a great cliffhanger.

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:22

        *laughs* Well, thank you for that, I think…?

        Oh no, this professor can’t be taken down! I’m a beetle that way. Can’t end me with one bullet.

        Just goes to show you all of this is real! I’d never make up that I was shot, see.

  5. 20 Debbie December 15, 2015 at 16:11

    Professor, now you’ve done it — resisting is futile, as they say. And resisting TWO guards would challenge even the bravest warrior! I hope you weren’t the one shot. Save yourself — let the guards capture D.S. instead (or maybe that weasel Clara!)

    • 21 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 20:01

      I think I was shot. You know, I felt a thingy in my side. Then everything went black. Imagine! I shall take revenge. Could they capture DS, tho?

  6. 22 Susan P December 15, 2015 at 14:41

    So far so good. But from here on it’s going to be…shall we say, well, let me explain myself…did you not see what was in that drawer?

    • 23 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 20:00

      In what drawer, madam?

      • 24 Susan P December 16, 2015 at 11:28

        Oops. I guess I should not have said anything.

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:27

        Now, now. Out with it, madam.

      • 26 Susan P December 17, 2015 at 17:36

        Are you practicing for Shakespeare?

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:16

        I’ll be starring as Macbeth soon.

  7. 28 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 14:29

    Oh goodness! This is the most dramatic TPL ever, I think. Also – I fear that Shnodgrate may well be talking about my singing…

    • 29 Susan P December 15, 2015 at 14:41

      That depends if you were sober when you were singing.

      • 30 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 15:19

        To be fair, my singing is pretty poor regardless of the level of intoxication. Terry sings better than I do.

      • 31 Susan P December 15, 2015 at 15:21

        Alas. Now what?

      • 32 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 15:22

        I am usually banned from singing, in fact. But I sing in the bath – no one can stop me there!

      • 33 Susan P December 15, 2015 at 15:23

        Perhaps you can dance while the rest sing.

      • 34 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 15:24

        Good plan. The Professor has heard my singing – he tried to tear his own ears off.

      • 35 Susan P December 15, 2015 at 15:26

        All right then. carry on…I have books to edit. It has been fun.

      • 36 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 15:29

        Don’t work too hard, now ;)

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 20:00

        Work so hard it kills the mice.

      • 38 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 20:03

        Ah that must be what Terry does.

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:19

        He would do something like that, the bugger.

      • 40 PorterGirl December 17, 2015 at 16:06

        It’s just his way *laughs*

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 19:59

      Did see I got shot? Imagine!

      • 42 PorterGirl December 15, 2015 at 20:01

        I am a-quiver with concern for your wellbeing, Professor. But a vicious brute like you won’t let a little shooting stop you!

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:18

        Nah! After all, what’s a bullet? Besides, a piece of thingy with some thingy in it! See, not that bad when you think on it.

      • 44 PorterGirl December 17, 2015 at 16:04

        Oh yes I see what you mean. No more scary than… a worm!

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:11

        *laughs* Right! Tho, worms are a bit scary.

      • 46 PorterGirl December 19, 2015 at 08:32

        But now I know to look for the ears they are somewhat less vexing.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2015 at 14:18

        That’s true. See? Nothing is as scary as it seems.
