And so the duel begins.
Having not really been in or witness to many physical fights, I have to wonder if unformalized fights share this same sort of pre-amble.
What do they say now?

Do people want the other person to make the first move? Is it illustrative of a certain confidence to say “Come on”?
It is very different than “Let’s go” or “Let’s do this.”
It’s inviting a beginning not actually beginning.
