I shouldn't be surprised

The kid's vocabulary shouldn't surprise me, but it does. While she was playing a video game she told me: "The monster book keeps obliterating us!"

Pardon?

It seems her father didn't use that descriptive word first. It seems that the little sponge is actually learning all the words she reads. I just didn't expect them to appear in our day-to-day interactions all the time.

Why use "beating" or "destroying" when you can use "obliterate".
