Overheard En Route

On my flight from Philadelphia to Phoenix today (on the way back to California):

Marine (to older woman sitting next him): Wow! You're the first normal-looking person I've sat next to all day!

Woman: Oh, I...well....

Marine: I mean, everyone else is always weird or sneezing or rolling over my armrest.

Woman: Yes, yes I suppose so.

Marine: Thanks for making my day.

Woman: You're very welcome.
