I had to present an argumentative thesis a few months back and had the opposite problem. I read for fun a LOT. As a result I have a fairly good working vocabulary.

The topic I chose is very contentious, and tends to bring out the snark in me. I made a very nasty crack about the people who hold the opposite viewpoint, and was jumped on that it was too obviously a quote, and that I needed to cite my source. I did rephrase it, but I told the proofreader no, that was just me being an a**hole
