Amen Rhubarb, not to mention neat, concise, and coherent.
I guess it takes knowing two languages to master one if that one happens to be English.
Good show, Branny. smile

Thanks >< I love concise, but mainly focussed on the non nautical use of the words. It just worked.

His date, a paragon of virtue, could hardly countenance his conduct, though he tried to gloze his tendency to tarry and bluff his way out of having arrived an hour late.

I hope you will countenance my delay as I tarry to bluff you out of your good performance; I do not gloze the fact that you are the paragon of weekly phrases.

( Does this look like glozing? it ìs! )

It was his greatest foible, as well as his forte, that he handled with masterful élan every conversational riposte, yet felt himself immeasurably wounded by each touché of his interlocutor.

Matching forte to forte and foible to foible their conversation admitted neither victory nor surrender until her last riposte, tossed over her shoulder with consummate élan as she paused in the open door, struck him with the force of a physical blow, leaving him only the breath to sigh "Touché."
