tou·ché

I've always wondered what this meant. I figured it was something between ok and good point. I wasn't so far off it would seem.

According to Dictionary.com, tou·ché means
Used to acknowledge a hit in fencing or a successful criticism or an effective point in argument.

Application:

Boss: That was the most irrelevant piece of shit of a presentation that I have ever had to endure.

You: (for lack of a valid argument) Touché!

Application 2:

Husband: I will come home at any time that I choose and you can't stop me.

Wife: Sure. Just know that there will be sex in this house at 7:00 PM whether or not you're here.

Husband: Touché!

Clarification:

Do not mix up tush, which is a slang for butt, and touch, which is self-explanatory, with touché.

For your exercise, please use the three words in a sentence. ;-)
