#1424: En Garde

En Garde

[[Two fencers stand facing each other. The left one has his sword up; the right one keeps his lowered.]]

Left fencer: En garde!

Right fencer: OK.

Right fencer: No matter how long we know each other, when you ask “What are you thinking,” I will always pause before answering.

Left fencer: Maybe a little less guarded?

Right fencer: No way. I’ve been hurt before.
