En Route to Calgary

There was nobody sitting beside me on the airplane, so I decided to listen to the couple in front of me.

At first I believed they were a couple, or family members, or at least a pair that knew each other. The one was describing her latest adventure as a journalist, the other his adventures fishing. They had seemingly nothing in common but their relationship.

It turned out they didn’t even have that.

At one point in the flight, I heard her say it. “Don’t you love meeting people in transit? I think its so fun, such a great opportunity to talk to people you don’t know!”

He laughed and agreed with her.

They were connected.
