We've had a lot of rain/storms here on Cape Cod during the summer. Several weeks ago, during one such storm, my friend/co-worker came down to my office to talk about the rain, to which I said, "Man, it's like a friggin deluge."
I received nothing but this look she gives me everytime I use "big words" (such as cantankerous and monosyllabic). After berating her for not knowing what deluge means, we have a good laugh and go back to work.
Today there's another storm. About 10 minutes ago it starts to pour and I see that my co-worker is calling me. I pick up the phone and say "Deluge," which is met with copious amounts of laughter.
"K, bye" we both say and hang up.
Sometimes I love my office.
