pop quiz, hot shot

Co-Worker#1 (in the next office, looking at some building plans with Co-Worker#2): Hey, Anne, do you know what a natatorium is?

Me: Isn’t that a building with a pool? A place where people swim?

Co-Worker#1: I mean this in the nicest way: you are a dork!

[Not much later, I sought an ally in Co-Worker#2.]

Me: You knew what it was, right?

Co-Worker#2: I had to look it up. We called them “aquatic centers”.
