Did you get that? This plane is so small that window seat passengers can really feel the curvature of the fuselage intruding into their shoulder and leg space. Tell me you want to sit in a window seat on this plane.
5D: You are in what business?
5C: I am in the milk business.
5D: Are you a farmer?
5C: No I market milk.
5D. Wow, that is very interesting, I love milk. If I don't have at least two glasses a day I don't feel right. Very cool.
5C: Well it is an interesting business.
At this point I silently offer a Prayer ("Beam Me Up Scotty, There is no Intelligent Life Here").
5D: I have always wanted to be in the cheese business.
5D: Yeah, Have you seen how much some of those cheeses cost? I can't afford to buy most of them. Whats the big deal they take some spoiled milk and add different flavors and then they sell it for a bundle. I would really like to get in the cheese business.
The conversation between 5D and 5C went on in this general manner for the entire flight. I learned that 5D sold software to call centers and other businesses. His company's software is what comes on your phone when you call any business and the recorded message says, "This call may be monitored for quality assurances." No wonder the guy wanted to be in the cheese business.
We landed on time and I was picked up at the airport curb by the Lovely Sharon. It was nice to see her. I wish I had brought her some cheese.
