A phone conversation during the November 2017 presidential election:

Woman: Hi honey. I moved and I left my dictionary behind. Can you tell me what a round building is called?

Me: I believe “rotunda” is the word for a round building.

Woman: Rotundee? Interesting. Now tell me, honey, do they have any round buildings in DC?

Me: There are probably several. Were you interested in a particular one?

Woman: I don’t know, it’s been a while since I’ve been there. I just thought there was a big round one.

<I google “round building in DC”>

Me: Well, there’s the Jefferson Memorial. It’s pretty big.

Woman: No…..

Me: The Capital building?

Woman: That’s it! Now tell me something, honey.–Remember, I forgot my dictionary at home.–Do they bury presidents there?

<more googling>

Me: I don’t think so. It looks like deceased Presidents are buried in a variety of places.

Woman: But what about ones who get killed now?

Me: Excuse me?

Woman: Like, if Obama were to get shot, where would we put him?

<trying not to laugh>

Me: I’m not sure, but I’ll–

Woman: How about meetings? Does the President ever have meetings there? What’s the Capital building for, anyway?

<hesitant googling>

Me: It’s the seat of Congress. The senators and representatives work there.

Woman: Oh. I see. But like if the President were to take them all aside for a meeting, what office would they use in the Capital building?

Me: …I’m not really sure.

Woman: Okay. Last question, honey, I promise. How far is the Capital from the White House?

<concerned google maps searching>

Me: Um, about 10 minutes. Can I ask–

Woman: Perfect. Can you print me off a map? I want to be able to get from one to the other real quick.

Me: Do you, now.
