Don’t remember the exact conversation, but it was something like this:
Nurse: “I was taking my dogs to go swim.”
Me: “Swim? Wasn’t it raining?”
Nurse: “Yeah, it was torrentulous.”
Now, I know torrentulous is not a word, but every once in a while, something comes along that is so delicious, so perfectly goofy and descriptive, that is has to be integrated into one’s personal lexicon. The moment she said it, my vocabulary expanded by exactly one word.
