Hey guys! Welcome back to [Best Pick]!
Suppose someone flirts with you, but you feel it’s troubling and have no idea how to refuse. I’m here to tell you Shakespearean ways to respond to unwanted flirting.
Follow us in today’s Best Pick.
1. “More of your conversation would infect my brain.”
2. “Thou damned and luxurious mountain goat!”
- Thou: old-fashioned word for “you”
3. “Out of my sight! thou dost (you do) infect my eyes.”
- Dost: old-fashioned second person singular form of the verb “do”
4. “Thou art (You are) a boil (a painful infected swelling under the skin), a plague sore.”
- Thou art: old use, means “you are”
5. “Get thee (you) to a nunnery, go.”
- Thee: old use for the word “you”, it is used as the object of a sentence, for example: I hate thee.
6. “Away, you three-inch fool!”
7. “I do wish thou wert (you were) a dog, that I might love thee something.”
- Thou wert: “you were”, “wert” is the second person singular past form of “be”
8. “You are not worth another word, else I’d call you knave.”
9. “O you beast! I’ll so maul you and your toasting-iron that you shall think the devil is come from hell.”
10. “Do you think I am easier to be play’d on than a pipe?”
That’s all for today’s [Best Pick]!
