Dear reader, I am throwing down the gauntlet. You have a challenge set forth for you this week:
Work an entire line from Romeo and Juliet into everyday conversation.
Scoring is as follows:
1 point for something generic and generally unidentifiable as R&J, i.e.
O, let us hence
3 points for something obviously identifiable as Shakespeare, but maybe not R&J, i.e.
How now! Who calls?
5 points for something identifiable as R&J, i.e.
A plague on both your houses!or
’tis known I am a pretty piece of flesh
10 points for something R&J, but hard to work into the vernacular, i.e.
Throw your mistempered weapons to the ground!
15 points if it is a double-entendre, plus a bonus 5 points if the other person completely misses it.
25 points if you get a little action from your significant other because of it. (Note: -50 points if either of you owns a Renn-Faire costume. Eww.)
Go forth and bring me news of your adventures.
