Hardly any translation required

I was resting at the end of a lap pool between repeats the other day. A young man and woman, roughly college-aged, were in the next lane. The young woman was saying to the young man, "You are such an asshole….You're such an asshole….You're such an asshole…..You are such an asshole."

I didn't hear what the young man said to provoke this response, but he was smiling, maybe a little smugly.

She was wearing a look of slight disbelief as she spoke, but also didn't look particularly angry.

Her one sentence, repeated four times, obviously translated as, "You really tickle my fancy."

I couldn't help but feel a little envious.
