Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

And I thought telepathy didn't exist...

Some backstory.

A couple of days ago, I was yammering at Fizz about the write way to spell email. Usually when compound words enter the common lexicon, they lose the hyphen. Fizz saw fit to disagree with me and a short conversation ensued which ended in me trying to think of a parallel example and failing (mostly becuase I was driving at the time).

Fast forward to today. A few minutes ago. I was writing the post which explained my userpic. It originated with me typing "extreme close up" and changing it to "extremely close up". She wanted me to type it initially as "extreme closeup" (possibly close-up). I think I said something like "It's one of those words I guess". I had initially intended that to be the diving board that I leap into the argument with. I decided not to and aborted after that line.

She goes "Oh! You're right! It lost the hyphen!" and totally picked up the previous argument despite the fact that I gave no indication that I was even thinking along those lines.

It's absolutely insane. We do this all day long. We have 10 line conversations where only 3 are actually spoken.

Why yes, my fine fellow, I do believe I'm in love.

Postscript: This is my first email using charm, the LJ client that I put on l for Fizz initially.
