Someone told me, "I heard you are a pool shark."
I looked around and asked, "Are you talking to me?"
He said, "Yes,"
I said, "No I’m not."
He replied, "Well everyone is telling me you are."
I was persistent with my 'no,' even though I ran out and beat him.
My thought process was this:
A pool shark is someone who engage in sharking in billiards, that a player who distracts an opponent by means of vocalizing (talking crap) or with movement on purpose. Or a person who hustles people for money.
His thought process was:
A pool shark refers to a player who is very well skilled.
He explained to me that I played very well...not only against him, but in all of my games. I told him thank you
So MAYBE I am a pool shark after all!
