I had it the first time, everyone knows what impudent means. I'm not ashamed of being either, it was such a poor attempt at an insult I wasn't sure if you were actually trying to insult me. Better luck next time.

I was so unimpressed I didn't think I needed to waste a good retort on you meager attempt at a jab at me. So the lame insult for a lame dude - makes sense to me.

This is between he and I - Why would you inject yourself into this?

And, ans customary, the one challenged gets the choice of weapons - you use lead weights in your hand bag so I am going for horseshoes at 30 paces. I want to see you kick one off.

Nobody's Confidant.. Can I just ask you why "confidant" is spelt "confidant" ?

I've always wondered.. I guess it's on purpose, but I'm not sure why.. Is it because your not confident you spell confident wrongly? ???

Confident and Confidant are two different things. Unless I'm mistaken, and I probably am, ConfidAnt is a close friend. While the former term, ConfidEnt means courage.
