Dodgeball Tournament

So, just recently, the professor played a dodgeball tournament.

Yes, I did.

No laughing, please.

I wasn’t that embarrassing.

See, I had some good moves and whatnot.

But, here’s the thing:

When the dodgeball looks like this…

Unknown

…it’s hard to do much harm with it.

It should be like this great, red, and fiery thingy:

A classic dodgeball isolated on white shows the crosshatch patterns used for grips.

A classic dodgeball isolated on white shows the crosshatch patterns used for grips.

I didn’t write that bit under the picture. It sounds too professional for me, don’t you know. Still, I do wish they would’ve used real dodgeballs. What’s up with that?! Dadblameit.

Anyways and a sum more than you were thinking, my team lost twice.

And this professor had the hardest time throwing.

I’m a lefty, see.

In jiu-jitsu this fellow sorta bent my left arm at this weird angle.

It hung limply for months.

Not really. But it still hurts.

I think I have nerve, ligament, muscle, bone, and many other damages, mind you.

Moral: Don’t ever hire the professor to play on your dodgeball team.

    At my college they keep trying to get us to sign up for softball. Eeep!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:59

      Softball is hard. But do it, i say!

  2. 3 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2016 at 01:07

    I prefer the beanbag dodgeball, Duke. Giggles. You can be on my team. We don’t care if we win or lose as long as someone gets hurt so we can laugh.

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:57

      *laughs* Well, I did get smacked in the face.

  3. 5 Sonya Solomonovich April 7, 2016 at 17:10

    Alas, poor professor! That happened to me too once while doing Jiujitsu, except it was my wrist. But even uninjured, I could never properly grasp one of those dodgeballs.

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:36

      *laughs* Isn’t jits vicious? Goodness.

  4. 7 Simply Skeptical April 6, 2016 at 23:02

    Your wounded!! That is as good an excuse than most could boast. And I’m certain the deflated unofficial dodgeball might take some of the blame as well. Never fret with all your professorish skills who needs it!

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:57

      You see, they did this on purpose. I say, it’s all awful. It was easy to dodge the ball. This professor wasn’t hit once!

  5. 9 L. Marie April 6, 2016 at 13:32

    I’ve heard of Dodge Ball tournaments. I used to love those! Congrats on your participation! They’re a good way to get out all of one’s pent-up aggression. ;-)

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:26

      I know! But don’t you think the ball should’ve been heavier? I think so.

  6. 11 progbeawr831 April 6, 2016 at 03:15

    YARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is the noise one makes when throwing said dodgeball and BALGH! when one misses the target! HEAVE with all yer might man and best not to miss for if ye do, the scourge of the dodgeball will arise form the depths of the gut in your opponent and come back at ye with a firey vengeance! So ye better get in some target practice and make sure ye got your best shoes on to! For if ye don’t then you may very well be attacked by wee garden gnomes in the foyer and the unleashed wee beasties that crawl up yer pant leg and bite yer arse so ya’s cannae walk right and yer throws will be WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY off! And make sure above all else mate……… shave will ya?

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:25

      Shave? But whatever for? I think I made all those sounds, don’t you know.

      • 13 progbeawr831 April 6, 2016 at 16:10

        Don’t tess the wookie or else you’ll have to porple the zingle again!

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:42

        I eat wookies for breakfast.

      • 15 progbeawr831 April 7, 2016 at 17:28

        You’re a Trandoshan? Bossk? Is that you? HEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY WASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSUP!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:36

        Now…what is a Trandoshan?

      • 17 progbeawr831 April 8, 2016 at 18:48

        Trandoshans are what Bossk is, that lizard looking thing you see in The Empire Strikes Back standing on the ledge snarling at that guy below. They hunt Wookies for their pelts hence my comment to yours saying you eat Wookies for breakfast. I’m an old school Star Wars geek

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:57

        No way! I didn’t know that. I thought Wookies were the most powerful beasts ever.

      • 19 progbeawr831 April 8, 2016 at 19:00

        Nope, that’s why they live in trees on their home planet of Kashyyk to avoid Trandoshans. They’re nasty wee beasties those Trandoshans and their smelly lizard feeties!

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:37

        Humph. I Like that the wookies have a weakness, tho. I think I’m a Sith, you know.

      • 21 progbeawr831 April 11, 2016 at 17:00

        Oh yeah? Hmmmm… I always seem to miss you at the S.A. meetings(Siths Anon), probably that whole Jedi mind trick thing eh? I thought you were Duke Skywalker? No wait that’s me! If that’s me then who are you? Wait what?! Eating pizza?

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:18

        I’m Sith Pizza Dude Man.

      • 23 progbeawr831 April 12, 2016 at 17:26

        Far Out……. Can I bring two Friends? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!
        But what about the Parmesan Pirate? Watch out for him man! He’s powdery!

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:44

        Hahaha. You can have four friends, I think.

      • 25 progbeawr831 April 13, 2016 at 18:40

        SAWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They’re all kooky and fun and they like peanut butter too

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:36

        Well, that’s good, then. I’m always getting rid of my peanut butter.

      • 27 progbeawr831 April 14, 2016 at 16:04

        Best served as a condiment on hamburgers….it’s amazing! It’s all I use on them now! Phenomenally Yummy!

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:59

        *doubtful professor eye*

  7. 29 walt walker April 6, 2016 at 00:22

    That dodgeball that looks like a Red Dwarf sun. That’s a proper dodgeball, see. It probably feels like one on contact. Not so that bean bag thingy. Now, you know dodgeball is outlawed in many places these days? Too many young pups getting beaned in the head-bone, with concussives and whatnot. Like That pretty much makes you an outlaw, too I think. For playing?

    • 30 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:24

      Really? Aha! That’s why they had such a light ball! I knew it. This is great, tho. I’m now an outlaw. There will be an reward for me soon. Don’t turn me in till it reaches one million. Then we can split it, please.

  8. 31 Freakishly Fangirlish April 5, 2016 at 23:03

    Your poor arm! You really should see someone about that….

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:23

      Do you think so? I was hoping it’d get better on it’s own, you know.

      • 33 Freakishly Fangirlish April 6, 2016 at 17:47

        urm…:P

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:43

        Oh dear. That means you think I’m doomed, doesn’t it?

      • 35 Freakishly Fangirlish April 7, 2016 at 17:30

        um…

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:37

        Today is not the day for ums…

      • 37 Freakishly Fangirlish April 8, 2016 at 18:45

        is there ever a day for ums?

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:56

        Mondays…wouldn’t you say?

      • 39 Freakishly Fangirlish April 8, 2016 at 19:04

        Oh, that is very true. Mondays are the worst. I don’t wear contacts and my words don’t make sense… definitely an um day

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:37

        *Laughs* For sure. It’s just…blah. Let’s get rid of Mondays.

  9. 41 Debbie April 5, 2016 at 22:46

    Poor Professor! I haven’t played dodgeball since P.E. class in school, but I remember it well. The idea is to hit as many folks as you can without getting hit first. See? It should be right up your alley! Sadly, you just weren’t using the proper equipment. A beanbag chair is too big, and we won’t even mention your dangly arm. You had a doctor check that out, didn’t you??

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:23

      No, not really…I think it’s getting better…right? Right! *nods* Well, I say we should organize a dodgeball team for us bloggers.

      • 43 Debbie April 6, 2016 at 14:51

        Works for me! I’ll hide behind you and toss the bombs from safety.

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:39

        But who shall I hide behind?

  10. 45 Nancy Loderick April 5, 2016 at 19:36

    Oh my gosh Professor, I must admit, I couldn’t stop laughing at the thought of you playing dodgeball! Does that make me an “evil” reader? :)

    Nancy

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:20

      *mouth drops* And why is that, tho?

      • 47 Nancy Loderick April 6, 2016 at 19:40

        Well Professor,

        I just have this VERY funny picture of you in my mind, trying unsuccessfully to dodge the ball. :)

        Nancy

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:54

        I’ll have you know I dodge faster than a sticky wicket!

  11. 49 FictionFan April 5, 2016 at 19:20

    Dodgeball is so… American! *tries not to chuckle* Your poor arm! I hope you triangulated the other chap! The thing to remember about jiu-jitsu is to always take along a baseball bat in case of emergencies…

    You’ll still be the captain of my dodgeball team though – I must have someone to hide behind!

    • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:20

      You mean you’ve never played dodgeball? I barely was able to tap out in time! There was a resounding crack. And there was my arm, useless and destroyed. *looks at it and shakes head*

      Just catch the ball when it comes at you and you’ll be fine!

      • 51 FictionFan April 6, 2016 at 18:04

        Never! Tap out? Oh, I didn’t realise there was tap-dancing involved! It sounds much more exciting now *puts on tap shoes and warms up*

        Now, look here! We need to have a talk about the injuries you are always doing to your arms and hands! Don’t you realise they are the most important parts of you? (Some may say only, but I’m not that mean…) How are we to get a constant supply of vids if you peristently damage your playing appendages?!? Next time, break a leg! *stomps off*

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:54

        Neve ever? Well, we must have a game as soon as possible. Yes…well…well…tap dancing. Goodness. I suppose that counts.

        I know. It’s awful, isn’t it? A leg?! How dare you and all the good people! Still, I must protect my hands. But I’m thinking about retiring…

      • 53 FictionFan April 7, 2016 at 19:50

        Ok, but only if I get to do the throwing and you do the dodging…

        *gasps* I’m sorry, I’ve consulted with the full membership of the fan-club, and I have unanimously decided we can’t allow that! So get back to work, sir!!

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:42

        Deal. I’m good at dodging, the sudden. I think I am.

        Really? Are you sure? Doubly sure?

      • 55 FictionFan April 9, 2016 at 17:24

        Absotively posilutley, sir! Now get to work! *stomps off*

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:54

        No! *stomps both feet*

      • 57 FictionFan April 11, 2016 at 16:54

        *blows raspberry*

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:17

        Oh. that’s rather cool.

  12. 59 John W. Howell April 5, 2016 at 18:56

    Gee before the disclaimer I was going to hire you for the professional league. I guess i will have to scout eleswhere.

    • 60 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:19

      But…no! Just give me some proper training and I should be good to go!

  13. 61 Jackie April 5, 2016 at 17:51

    Dodgeball – now there’s a game I haven’t played for decades!

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:17

      Me too! Until just recently. It was a hoot.

      • 63 Jackie April 6, 2016 at 16:25

        Was it a holler too?

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:43

        Oh yes. But I didn’t holler much, tho.

      • 65 Jackie April 7, 2016 at 18:31

        Well a hooting and a hollering always means a good time!

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:38

        And usually comes before something blows up, now that I think on it.

      • 67 Jackie April 8, 2016 at 18:42

        Hmmmm now that you mentioned it – I think you are right about that.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:56

        Aha! That means I win, see.

      • 69 Jackie April 8, 2016 at 18:59

        Well then – congrats!

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:36

        *bows*

  14. 71 Haylee April 5, 2016 at 16:30

    I did laugh, I’m sorry! It was just the image of a less-than-healthy dodgeball flying about and apathetically slapping people in the face! Now, if you were to play with an enormous beany chair, saggy or not, you could destroy EVERYBODY!! I get quite competitive, which is probably not good when I generally play the game with 8 year olds (how else am I suppose to win?!) Hope you’re not damaged forever :)

    • 72 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:15

      *laughs* You should’ve come to help the team out, Haylee! Where were you, dadblameit? I needed something harder. I think next time I’ll bring a baseball.

      • 73 Haylee April 6, 2016 at 14:27

        Ooh, brutal! I’m probably the worst person to have on a team. I think I’m amazing (at everything!) but in reality, I just seem to shout a lot to make up for my lack of actual skill! Still, A+ for effort!

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:37

        *laughing* Effort is worth everything! You’re on the team, I’ve decided. We need someone to help morale. Morale is so important. Plus, I’ll hide behind you, just for fun.

      • 75 Haylee April 7, 2016 at 18:23

        Whoo-hoo for making the team! I’ll dig out my pom poms for celebratory dances! As if you’re going to use me as a human shield though – it won’t work, unless you’re the size of Gimli and then it will still be problematic!

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:38

        Oh boy. I do wish I was Gimil, the sudden. Isn’t he the coolest chap ever? You know he is.

  15. 77 Chris White April 5, 2016 at 16:17

    Ah, yes. Dodgeball. Do not dodge it at your peril. Dodge City blues.
    The rules are very simple it seems:
    1. Try to kill everybody in the other team.
    2. Try not to die.

    • 78 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:13

      I like these rules. Simple and very professorish. These are rules I can remember, see.

  16. 79 desertdweller29 April 5, 2016 at 15:38

    I’m sorry to hear this. I was just getting to my final pick on my blogosphere dodgeball team! I’ll still take you, even with your dangly arm. I’m a lefty, too. We are prone to dadblamery.

    • 80 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:13

      Prone to dadblamery, madam! Okay. This is great. I need to win a game after losing two. Let’s go. Take me to the battlefield!

      • 81 desertdweller29 April 6, 2016 at 21:19

        Okay, first we line our opponents jerseys with magnetic strips. Then we have a ball lined with magnetic insides. Then we blast away! (Don’t worry… playing dirty is right out of the Pats playbook. You should have no qualms, sir!)

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:56

        *rampages for three days and nights* Did you see the Pat fans are suing the NFL? Deflategate was all setup!! I know you love the Pats. And Trump.

      • 83 desertdweller29 April 7, 2016 at 21:32

        Hahahahhhahhh!!!! *rolls on the floor laughing* You just had to throw in the Trump card, didn’t ya! lol

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:48

        *laughs* You enjoy him so much…I had to!

  17. 85 kedslover April 5, 2016 at 15:22

    Oh goodness. Terrifying! And your poor dangly arm, too, how unfortunate.

    • 86 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:12

      I know! Dodgeball is fun, tho. You should’ve come and helped out.

      • 87 kedslover April 6, 2016 at 20:32

        Oh I don’t know…after my recent experience with volleyball I’m slightly wary of sports.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:55

        Ooo, tell me! What happened? I’ve always wanted to play volleyball.

      • 89 kedslover April 11, 2016 at 19:54

        Well…let’s just say I’m now thoroughly convinced I’ve got two left feet. Not only was I completely unfamiliar with the actual RULES part of volleyball, I continuously stepped on people’s toes, missed the ball by yards numerous times, and in general caused absolute chaos for everyone involved.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:21

        *laughs* That sounds like what I might do. Okay, let’s go to the practice field and sort this out. You’ll be spicy in no time, I’m sure of it.

      • 91 kedslover April 12, 2016 at 15:47

        I would hope so! I very much need training. Very much.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:42

        Okay, then. It’s a thingy. We shall meet, train, and become beasts. *nods*

      • 93 kedslover April 13, 2016 at 18:29

        Yes! One step closer to world domination!

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:35

        Oh goody. I think I should run the world for a bit.

      • 95 kedslover April 14, 2016 at 17:41

        I’d vote for you.

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:03

        You’d have to help, tho, please.

      • 97 kedslover April 17, 2016 at 23:02

        Of course! But would you really value my guidance? I can be a bit, er, sporadic at times…

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:48

        *laughing* That’s perfect. *nods* Sporadic is just what I need.

      • 99 kedslover April 18, 2016 at 17:29

        Oh good! Well in that case…*grabs button that says “Vote for the Professor!” in big bold letters*

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 13:02

        Ooo! Cool. *pins one on* How does it look?

      • 101 kedslover April 20, 2016 at 18:35

        *claps happily* You rock it completely! :D

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:19

        Haha! Sweet. Now, I feel spicy.

      • 103 kedslover April 24, 2016 at 19:50

        Ooh. Tis spicy a feeling?

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:38

        Oh yes. It’s a warrior feeling, see!

      • 105 kedslover April 25, 2016 at 19:16

        Oh wow! How do I find this “warrior feeling”? It sounds so interesting!

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:36

        Well, I do think you’ll find it any time soon. You’re already a warrior, don’t you know.

      • 107 kedslover April 26, 2016 at 17:17

        I feel so amazingly honored now.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:08

        Haha. Me too, I think.

      • 109 kedslover April 28, 2016 at 13:44

        *curtsies*

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:47

        I must needs practice the art of the curtsy.

      • 111 kedslover May 1, 2016 at 18:45

        Well are you proficient in the art of the bow?

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:51

        I fear not! Can’t remember the last time I did a successful one. *embarrassed*

      • 113 kedslover May 3, 2016 at 18:36

        Ah, that’s okay. I have similar problems. I have been known to trip profusely while curtsying.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:20

        You know what, let’s just ban bowing. From now on, we’ll do the Tribune salute. *nods*

      • 115 kedslover May 6, 2016 at 22:37

        I like that idea! What’s the proper Tribune salute form?

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:33

        Well, you sorta make a fist with your left hand and then cross that arm over your chess. Like this… *does it*

      • 117 kedslover May 11, 2016 at 19:53

        Ohh I like it… *salutes back* Verrry nice, Professor!

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2016 at 01:54

        Thank you! *blushes and is very proud about the whole thing*

      • 119 kedslover May 14, 2016 at 20:44

        *pats you on back*

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2016 at 22:33

        Ah! All better now, I think.

      • 121 kedslover May 15, 2016 at 15:19

        Good! Pats always do good to the world.

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 12:38

        Unless I put on my spiked helmet. *puts one on*

      • 123 kedslover May 16, 2016 at 16:55

        Uh-oh. *takes three steps back* *takes five more steps back*

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 18:55

        Oh, they’re quite safe. You can ram things. Would you like one?

      • 125 kedslover May 19, 2016 at 18:53

        Hm. That does sound quite fun. Alright, I’ll take one, thanks. As long as they’re at least relatively safe…

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2016 at 14:28

        Well…depends what you ram. I mean, it’s safe for you, see.

      • 127 kedslover May 29, 2016 at 21:46

        Oooh. Beware world outside my helmet.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke June 6, 2016 at 14:58

        You know, I think I’m going to retire!

      • 129 kedslover June 6, 2016 at 20:24

        And maybe you should! I’m sure you’d do just fine!

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke June 7, 2016 at 13:19

        To a beach in Peru. I think.

      • 131 kedslover June 7, 2016 at 20:04

        Sounds like the ultimate vacation spot. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the rest of your life in peace and tranquility.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:22

        Unless all the bugs kill me. Then you’ll have to give me bug spray, I think.

      • 133 kedslover June 10, 2016 at 22:19

        Sure! I always keep some on hand, cuz bugs like to attack me especially.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:52

        Haha. Do you really? Cool. Do you have lots of cicadas where you’re at?

      • 135 kedslover July 11, 2016 at 19:58

        Yes in fact. I do believe it’s one of the top ten cicada capitals of the world.

  18. 136 Heartafire April 5, 2016 at 15:14

    Dodge ball is one of the most dangerous sports one can get involved in, oh, professor why didn’t you consult with me, forewarned is forearmed (pun so intended)

    • 137 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:12

      Hahahaha! Well, you should’ve warned me! Do you think I’ll die? *Prepares*

      • 138 Heartafire April 6, 2016 at 14:29

        Don’t forget to wear the proper gear, the helmet and good “dodging” shoes. Consider me your coach, I work for free and have not lost a dodger yet.

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:38

        Well, then. I feel privileged, it must be said. So, free?

      • 140 Heartafire April 7, 2016 at 18:05

        Since I have volunteered my services as a world renown dodge ball coach you need only show up wild eyed on caffeine . Sound like fun?

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:38

        Yes, it does. But I don’t drink coffee…

      • 142 Heartafire April 8, 2016 at 18:40

        for heavens sake, some tea? Power drink?
        I don’t drink coffee either, who will keep us awake?

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:55

        Maybe…some strawberries?

      • 144 Heartafire April 8, 2016 at 19:44

        yes, strawberries. Maybe will skip the game and sit under a shady tree and eat strawberry’s till it’s time to leave.

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:40

        Okay, that sounds fun. After all, I’m sorta tired, don’t you know.

      • 146 Heartafire April 11, 2016 at 13:41

        Partying all weekend no doubt. What about your professional dodgeball career?

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:59

        *laughs* You didn’t come and catch me from my partying, tho, so I got away with it.

      • 148 Heartafire April 11, 2016 at 15:24

        We have a lot invested in this! haha, you are sly. I was too busy partying myself, what loser athletes we make.

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:16

        We should just retire. What think ye?

      • 150 Heartafire April 12, 2016 at 14:02

        They will miss us.

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:39

        We’ll blow kisses.

      • 152 Heartafire April 13, 2016 at 14:22

        and wave, they’ll look after us very perplexed. That’s life.

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:31

        Haha. I like this image.

      • 154 Heartafire April 14, 2016 at 13:32

        We were their only hope for the championship.

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:38

        And now…they’ve no hope.

  19. 156 PorterGirl April 5, 2016 at 14:35

    I find the dodge ball picture very informative. I am sure you were just super, even with your dangley arm. Such a shame there are no pictures of you in action, it would be quite a sight.

    • 157 Professor VJ Duke April 6, 2016 at 14:11

      Well. I don’t know. I ran about a bit. But throwing hurt!! *growls*

      • 158 PorterGirl April 6, 2016 at 14:33

        No doubt you were a warrior on the field, like a dodge ball Hector! Warriors get used to a little pain now and then. It’s quite heroic, I am told.

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 16:38

        Yes…maybe. I was awful, I think. And I killed my arm, too. *looks at the dangly thing* We should have a funeral for it.

      • 160 PorterGirl April 7, 2016 at 16:40

        *laughs* I am sure you were not that awful. But I do feel sorry for the arm. I shall compose a song in remembrance for it. Or maybe some kind of recovery song.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2016 at 17:00

        I was more awful than a worm eating through ice. That’s because I’m old, tho. You youngsters can’t understand that.

      • 162 PorterGirl April 7, 2016 at 17:07

        *laughing lots* Oh yes, it must be old age that does it. I will let you know when I get there, which will probably be next week. Old age is very close, you know.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:36

        Next week? Goodness. How many b-days do you have a week?

      • 164 PorterGirl April 8, 2016 at 20:42

        About four. But it depends on the time of year.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:42

        Haha. Well, at least that’s lots of cake.

      • 166 PorterGirl April 11, 2016 at 14:10

        That’s the best thing about it.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:13

        Of course, must be hard to stay fit with that many b-days, tho.

      • 168 PorterGirl April 12, 2016 at 13:23

        That’s why I look like a naked mole rat thing, of course.

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:36

        Hahaha. I think you really like those buggers.

      • 170 PorterGirl April 13, 2016 at 13:38

        The likeness is uncanny.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:59

        Nah, nah. *shakes head five hundred times*

      • 172 PorterGirl April 13, 2016 at 14:03

        Careful, your head will get dizzy. Not even the winning smile and pink belly?

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:30

        But they don’t smile, do they?

      • 174 PorterGirl April 14, 2016 at 14:20

        Is that not a smile on their little faces? Perhaps it is a grimace!

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:55

        Just before they let out their war cry!

      • 176 PorterGirl April 16, 2016 at 07:44

        Oh! Exactly like me, then. I think I am related to them. I shall ask nan.

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:45

        Yes, ask her. I think she’ll know what’s what.

      • 178 PorterGirl April 18, 2016 at 13:13

        I have made the relevant inquiries and it seems that I am certainly a close relative. Now, fancy that.

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 12:54

        *professorish eye*

      • 180 PorterGirl April 19, 2016 at 13:21

        Noooo!! Not the professorish eye..!

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:24

        It scares the togoggins out of everyone, in truth.

      • 182 PorterGirl April 20, 2016 at 12:25

        I’m not in the slightest bit surprised! A ferocious thing, it is.

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:48

        I’m proud of it, too.

      • 184 PorterGirl April 20, 2016 at 13:22

        Yes, I gathered that. It is quite a thing, I admit.

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:00

        Gathered it all up nicely, did you. Capital.

      • 186 PorterGirl April 22, 2016 at 07:42

        I have my uses, see.

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:35

        You’re a bit wicked, aren’t you? *professorish eye*

      • 188 PorterGirl April 25, 2016 at 14:00

        Not the eye again! I’m only a tiny bit wicked, after all.

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:20

        Okay, I’ll hide it.

      • 190 PorterGirl April 26, 2016 at 13:25

        Phew! I was scared there, for a moment.

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:37

        Me too. It scares me every so often, the bugger.

      • 192 PorterGirl April 26, 2016 at 13:40

        Yes, I bet it does. I bet your other eye has to keep careful watch of it.

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 11:57

        It does. It’s always giving it the cranky gaze, in truth.

      • 194 PorterGirl April 27, 2016 at 12:01

        Your eyes must be in constant battle.

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:13

        They’re always fighting each other. It’s so vexing, don’t you know.

      • 196 PorterGirl April 27, 2016 at 12:15

        It must be indeed! Send one of them to sit in the corner. Give them a chance to calm down.

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:18

        But then I’d have to pluck it out!

      • 198 PorterGirl April 28, 2016 at 16:46

        And that might be rather messy.

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:55

        Could you imagine?

      • 200 PorterGirl April 30, 2016 at 08:02

        Unfortunately I can!

      • 201 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:46

        Well, don’t then! Goodness.
