Ever have one of those moments where someone says something and your either silent or vocal reply is "Challenge accepted!"?

I did today. So I am sitting in class and the prof. was discussing the department's (philosophy) grading policy: they do not give more than 25% A's. This is kinda annoying, yet I sorta get it...sorta. I actually do not agree with such a policy but that's the beast that universities are. Anyways, because she's a new prof and had graded a little too easy last semester, she indicated that getting an A for this class will be rather difficult. Challenge accepted. Most of the mark is two papers, and to get an A we need to refer to at least two commentaries outside course materials. Should be easy enough, especially given that it is an introductory course on Aristotle and late Hellenistic philosophy. :D

So my fellow EoFFers, what has been your most recent or memorable (any moment really) of "Challenge accepted!"?

Aristotle is my most favourite Philosopher! :)

As for the actual question, heh, maybe. /smug

Only every time my girlfriend makes a comment about something I should not do. It has gotten to the point where I need no longer actually say it.

"You shouldn't eat that entire pizza. You're going to be sick."
"--accepted. Yes, dear, I know."

Every time ever that someone tells me I can't or shouldn't do something, much like Ouch's girlfriend.

Just now while sat in work... when asked whether I'll have four contracts sent out by 7pm.

Anything involving food. I'll eat things you think are gross if I know they won't hurt me. I'll eat large amounts of food. I can cook food too!
