When I’m in conversation with someone and they proclaim “that’s what I’m talkin’ about!”, I always ask a follow up question, like “Is it? Is that really what you’re talkin’ about? Because I want to be clear on what it is that you’re talkin’ ’bout. We’ve got to be accurate about the subject of our conversation.”

They usually pause, think for a moment, and then say “yeah, I uh… I guess that is what I am talking about.”

Then I say “Alright, we’ve got that cleared up! You’ve left no room for misinterpretation.”

And then they say “Polysyllabic spree! That’s what I’m talkin’ bou’!

I have neat friends.
