Challenge for the week: Romeo and Juliet

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.
