Literally

What is going on?” Harris thundered. He shouted in surprise at the flash of lightning that came concurrently.

“Stop using said-bookisms,” Julie hissed. She sagged a bit as she began to deflate, and clamped a hand over her nose to stem the flow. The hissing stopped.

“I just don’t understand,” Harris fumed. He and Julie both began to cough as smoke filled the small room. Harris kept fuming until Julie threw her drink on him, after which he merely smoldered.

“The parser is broken,” Julie explained. “You can’t get too creative with your vocabulary.”

“What!?” Harris exploded.

“Ew,” said Julie.

Ha! Nicely done.

I was just making fun of a someone on my facebook feed for using the word incorrectly, saying his horoscope literally said his week was going to suck. I asked him if his horoscope literally said that, or if it said the week was literally going to suck, because either way I'd be impressed. .....he literally didn't get what I was teasing him about.
A story doesn't have to have be happy, to gain happiness from a story.

This one's a hybrid. Call it a homonymverb.
