That awkward moment you’re having a conversation with someone and you use a really good, but rarely used, word…
And you’re kind of proud you thought to use it, because it fit perfectly and you’re not even sure where it came from.
Perhaps it was a gift from the vocabulary gods.
But then the person you’re talking to proceeds to use the exact same word in the exact same conversation with you.
Like, they steal that word from you!
Right in front of you!
And you look at them like you know what they did.
But they look at you like you have no idea.
And all you can think now is, “You dirty little word stealer!”
