“You’re Narrow-minded.” HOW DARE YOU

“Maybe you’re just narrow-minded.”

She said it bluntly, it was so blunt. So blunt.

Not that I minded, of course. The professor never minds.

But it did throw off my groove, if I’m completely honest.

Yes, the professor usually functions in some sort of groove.

Now, here’s the thing, you see: It’s not that I was insulted, it’s just that I wasn’t sure what to say.

Previously, the professor had been winning the war of words.

But the line she delivered was a sinker.

I had to act and act fast.

So, I said the only thing I could think of:

“What was that?”

She sighed, gave me a look of annoyance, put her hands on her hips, and said: “I SAID, if you think you’re always right, you’re probably a bit narrow-minded.”

And then the words I needed came to me in a gust of inspiration.

I was searching for a gif to put there and this is what popped up. I completely agree with this statement.

“Look here,” I began, “firstly first, I’m always right because if I wasn’t right for one split second, why then I’d be wrong, and if I was wrong, why then it would mean I wasn’t right, and how could that possibly be the case when we just all agreed that I was right when I’m right which is pretty much all the time?”

See what I did there? Lots of words. I must admit, I said nothing, but it sounded like I said something. Plus–ultra cool–I said that we all just agreed on what I said, which included her.

That caught her up nice and fluffy.

“But…but…” she said.

I said nothing. #professorwins

“But you might be narrow-minded, then.”

“Then we all probably are, since we all just agreed I’m usually right.”

Moral: If you’re ever not sure what to say, say it all and say it quick.

    Give her time, Duketh. She will grow to like you.

      But I think it works the opposite. They all grow to hate me, see.

      • 3 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 17, 2018 at 02:03

        Maybe they are just shy.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2018 at 17:01

        What’s a good indication if someone is shy?

      • 5 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 20, 2018 at 13:54

        Busyness and no eye contact, I’d say.

    But being narrow-minded is a good thing. It means you know who you are as a man, and are not at all wishy-washy. The narrower the better, I say.

      Ah, always with a different view. Walt, you genius, you’re a visionary. I could get behind that theory.

    I totally need to put this in my back pocket #alwaysright

    • 9 Professor VJ Duke August 15, 2018 at 18:27

      Exactly. Just don’t try it on me, please.

    Professor, this story tells me you’re ready to run for political office! Saying a bunch of words that mean absolutely nothing when strung together like beads, all the while making your listeners *think* what you’re saying is brilliant — yep, you’d get more votes than you know!!

    • 11 Professor VJ Duke August 15, 2018 at 18:27

      lol I think you’re onto something there. Now, honest answer, Debbie, would you vote for the professor as president? *eye*

      • 12 Debbie August 16, 2018 at 17:23

        Truth? Depends, of course, on your stand on several key issues. I’ll let you guess which ones those might be! *nods head and snickers*

      • 13 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2018 at 17:00

        Okay, here goes…the right to have a cherry sucker at all times, the ability to have lizards run for office… Am I missing any? Those are key right there.

    *gasps* How could she possibly think you’re narrow-minded?? Doesn’t she know you consider Kenny G to be an acceptable member of the human race?? How much more broad-minded could you possibly be than that?? You should never trust a hands-on-hipper!

    PS I have some lovely haggis and neeps if you’d like to eat it for me. Thanks.

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke August 15, 2018 at 18:26

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. But don’t all girls put their hands on their hips?

      • 16 FictionFan August 15, 2018 at 23:14

        *puts hands on hips* No, they do not!

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2018 at 16:58

        When they get angry, I mean…

    Excellent lesson, Professor. Right is might

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke August 15, 2018 at 18:25

      I have a few lessons I can teach right and proper.

      • 20 John W. Howell August 15, 2018 at 20:13

        I’m sure you can.

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2018 at 16:56

        Like how to wash dishes for instance.

      • 22 John W. Howell August 19, 2018 at 18:14
