being a 2+yr mirrorless shooter (and never used a DSLR), I often get comments like "nice photos, why don't you get a DSLR?" Sometimes I try explaining the sensor equivalence to most DSLRs therefore similar image quality (and then I get the "huh?" look), while other times I just get lazy and say DSLRs are too big. What might be the most sensible & informative way of explaining myself?

I just say, same size sensor as a DSLR, yet 1/3rd the weight.

But don't you miss the mirror box ovf for the "shooting experience"and the quick return and above all, the clickitty, click, clack of rapidly operating mirror mechanism?  The dslr surely looks more impressive ....
