an example of a common conversation i hear at the neighborhood pool…

Man: Hey lifeguard, how’s the pool today?
Lifeguard: Oh, you know, it’s pretty aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolic, as usual.
Man: All right! Hey son, throw me a coke from the cooler.
Son: Here ya go, pops!
Man: Oy! This tastes aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolicic.
Kid: Did your dad just say “aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolicic”?
Son: Yeah, he likes to add another “ic” to the end of “aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolic” to make it “aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolicic.” He thinks it’s funny.
Kid: I see… Well I heard we should be expecting aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolic rain today, so I’m going to head home.
Son: All right. Take it easyequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolically.
