The other night during one of my favorite shows, Parks and Recreation, I had another interesting discovery.  Who says prime-time comedies aren't educational?!

Leslie and her boyfriend, Justin, went to talk to her boss, Ron.  This is how the dialogue on the show went:

Leslie, "Ron, I need a half a day off for a secret mission of love."
Ron, "You're asking my permission to take a nooner?"
Leslie, "Sure, well, I don't know.  Maybe.  Justin and I need to go on a romantically inspired road trip."
Ron, "So it is a nooner."
Leslie, "Well, we're planning to leave around noon so I'm not quite sure..."
Justin, "Leslie, it's not a nooner.  [To Ron...]  I tracked down this old fling of Leslie's mom.  We're gonna go pick him up.  We're gonna reunite them on Valentine's Day.  Is that a great story or what?"
Ron, "Yeah, great story indeed.  Enjoy your half day off."
Leslie, "Thank you."
Justin, [to Leslie] "Pick you up tomorrow around noon."
Leslie, "For our nooner." [Turns to Ron.]  "Which is a cute word!"
Ron, [to Justin] "Explain it to her later."
Leslie, [to Justin] "Explain what?"

Yeah, so I was totally Leslie.  I had no idea what a "nooner" was.  I really thought it was a fun made up word for when people want to leave work early.  Devin was laughing at me and didn't believe that I didn't know what that was!  Well, now I know!
