Hold off thy hand.

Note to self: The next time some random dude gropes me or gets a little too close to me, I would like to have this line at my immediate disposal.

One of my favorite podcast hosts has recommended saying, “Not cool!”
I like that one and I imagine it’s effective in a visceral way and easily understood but I think a loud, “Hold off thy hand!” might have a nice disorienting authority – it might invoke a little Hamlet-y danger – it might access the “something dangerous” within that Hamlet mentions.
