fun with Cole [Mar. 29th, 2002|04:35 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
(Cole is my 13 year old brother)

Cole: shouldn't you be getting ready to go to the beach?
Brad: shouldn't you be eating my ass?
Cole: touché!
Brad: what's that mean?
Cole: you don't know?
Brad: no, do you?
Cole: no. look it up.
Brad: Interjection. Used to acknowledge a hit in fencing or a successful criticism or an effective point in argument.
Cole: Well I ripped ass, so I'm outta here, see ya.

Im impressed that he knew to put the accent on touché.

Reminds me of when I was 11 and used to call everyone "ignorant." One day my brother (who is 2.5 years my senior) asked me if I even knew what "ignorant" meant. He made me look it up. Needless to say, I never called anyone "ignorant" again.

OK...call me "ignorant," but how do you get that little slash thingy over the e? (Yes, I know it has a name, I just can't think of it.) Heh...

On websites, (which includes LiveJournal until about a week from now) you should use é

Oh, and as you might have guessed by the entity name, that accent is called an 'acute'...

The word literally means 'touch'... in duels, the goal in most cases was not to kill, but to be the first to score a successful hit.

Yeah, I used to fence. Stabbing people is fun...
