Were you guys fencing with foils, which are blunted practice weapons, or rapiers, which are sharp pointy things? If foils neither of you was in much danger unless you fell and poked an eye out or something (you know Mom doesn't want you running with those things!).

Of course, I can't imagine either of you in much danger with rapiers, either:

"Draw, varlet!"
"No, you draw!"
"No, you!"
"No, you!"
"Let's flip a coin. You got a quarter or a loony?"
"You'll steal my coin!"
"No, I won't! Liar, liar pants on fire!"
"Draw then, varlet!"
"No, you first!"
"MOOOOOOOOOM! He won't draw first!"
"MOOOOOOOOOOM! He called me a loony varlet!"

etc., ad nauseam.
