Duck and weave, inthegarden, duck and weave.
I was also schooled (by the nuns) to say "Please?" when I didn't hear something that someone said. I was on a job interview....waaaay back when....and I missed something that the guy interviewing me had said, and I said, "Please?" He just looked at me for a moment and he said, "You were raised in a Catholic school, weren't you?" and he just seemed so impressed. I think I gained an extra point or two with that "Please?" Some people are so easily pleased.
