Word up!

25 07 2007

This is going to be quick, as I’ve just arrived home from the gym, and have to shower, change, and head out again for my next appointment.

Today’s word is:

\rih-POST\, noun:
1. A quick thrust given after parrying an opponent’s lunge in fencing.
2. A quick and effective reply by word or act.

intransitive verb:
1. To make a riposte.

The sentence:

I’m renowned for having a quick riposte available for most occasions.  It’s not often that I’m caught speechless, but it does happen, which often causes a break in my confabulation. πŸ˜‰

Have a great day!

I don’t think anyone could create a nonage trenchant avatar that could emulate the contents of this confabulation in sotto voce. And besides, if they can, the energy consumed from their riposte will turn their tortuous mind into a bibelot.

ROFL very good sentence and so true that you’re caught speechless very little πŸ˜› For which we are all greatful… not grateful when you are speechless, greatful that you are quick-witted and (mostly) funny πŸ˜€

Brad… My new word for you is “nerd”, but I’ll go so far as saying that in your “nerdity” you’re exceptionally erudite. πŸ˜‰

Jamie… Mostly? Are you trying to tell me that sometimes I’m not? Oy vey! πŸ˜‰
