The Hand

A weekend spent with family, during which I learned from one of my father’s old fencing buddies that they used to call Dad “The Hand,” in a reference to his quick strike with the sabre. We immediately put the nickname to good use on the tennis court: “Good job, but remember, now we receive from the Hand.” or “I think the Hand is tiring.” I’m also looking forward to future instances of “talking to the Hand” and the prospective crossover “Mr. Hand” utterance in a Jeff Spicoli voice.
