Alyssa: We need to conversate about something.
Reginald: Can’t do it.
Reginald: Conversate is not a word.
Alyssa: Irregardless, we need to talk.
Reginald: Irregardless is not a word either.
Alyssa: Aint nobody asking for an English lesson.
Reginald: Aint aint a word because aint aint in the dictionary. Chuckle. Also, your use of a double negative suggests you do want an English lesson.
Alyssa: Look, I could care less about this.
Reginald: Could you care less? Then you do care at some level.
Alyssa: Ok, firstly, I’m not trying to hear that.
Reginald: Firstly, also not a word. Neither is secondly, or thirdly.
Alyssa: Look, are you going to be a participator in this conversation or not?
Reginald: Participator is not a word. Participant is a word.
Alyssa: You got me so mad I have to orientate myself back to a good mood so I don’t slap you.
Reginald: Guess what? Orientate is not a word. Orient, however, is a word.
Alyssa: Ok, as a preventative measure I’m going to walk away so I don’t kill you.
Reginald: Perhaps a preventive measure. No such thing as a preventative measure.
Reginald: Preventative, not a word.
Alyssa: Forget it. I do not want to have a conversation with you anymore.
Reginald: What were we just doing?
Alyssa: We were not having an exchange of views on matters of mutual interest.
Alyssa: You don’t realize that your atypical behavior exacerbated an already precarious situation that otherwise, with a certain discretion, and minimal courtesy could have been resolved amicably and with dispatch. The direct result of said behavior being we did not explore the issues between us in a constructive and respectful manner to pave way toward resolution thus strengthening and extending our relationship.
Reginald: Then what?
Alyssa: We were breaking up. We just don’t communicate. Goodbye.
Reginald:Did not see that coming.
