Verbal fencing

Verbal fencing....for's good entertainment, it's a test of intelligence and wits and above all it's my way of showing affection... for years I have prided myself on being one step ahead...always...even amongst my family who have been, to date, my only really worth 'opponents'...

'To date'...because today I met my match, for the first time ever...with one response I was reduced to silence! And I am still stunned!! In a good way!!

Oohhh- I LOVE a good exchange of witty banter! Especially during foreplay! I love the phrase "Verbal Fencing"- can I use that?

Always love witty banter, the thrust and parry of razor sharp words. Unfortuneatly, between growing up in the southern U.S. and my experiences in the Navy, I find that most good fencing matches were ended with one of the following phrases.

"F**k you!"
"Oh yeah?"
and the always timeless
"Your momma!"

I swear, it's enough to make you weep for humanity.

Is reduced to silence a good thing? I'd have thought the *perfect* wordplay was one that went on and on?

Mia: 'The better part of valour is discretion' lips are sealed!

Fab: By all means, go ahead...I certainly didn't coin the phrase!

Seven Seas: I have a very dear friend from I completely understand!

dgnyhk: In this case reduced to silence was a good thing...because it was the first time that had ever happened to me!!! But yes, I agree, the perfect wordplay should go on and on!
