Please help settle a bet between my wife and me.

Me: BTW, that guy told me so-and-so has an auto-immune deficiency and some liver fuck-up
She: That guy used to be a junkie, right? Probably hepatitis. Sharing needles.
Me: “itis” means an infection of, ie hepatitis, etc. It’s the auto-immune stuff that’s preventing her getting better. I have no idea about any infection. I also have no idea what I’m talking about about the auto-immune stuff, but i have no idea but an infection. An itis.
She: Doesn’t bronchitis mean inflamed bronchial tubes?
Me: Yes, but that’s a symptom. There’s some mnemonic for inflammation, so,etching with rubor–which means redness, because I’m one smart husband you got there.
She: Does not.
Me: Does too.

Me: [hooking my pinky to hers]: Bet.
