Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

I can't believe I'm doing this. At Paola's (!) urging, I actually bought tickets to the midnight show at the Promenade. The only reason we can even think about doing this is that my dad happens to be in town staying with us tonight, enabling us to leave Lucas at home. I, of course, am in the middle of a filing from hell (when am I not?), and will pay dearly tomorrow for failing to sleep during those three hours.

But what the hell. We live once.
