This week I had the pleasure of flying back home from a national Chemistry meeting. I sat between a strange couple. The woman on my left was rather chatty asking where I was from, what I was doing in Denver and then telling me about her life. She was in Denver visiting her daughter on spring break, and was now traveling back to Manassas. Her husband appeared to be truly invested in the television. He quickly swiped his card to continue watching his show but would allow me a view out the window as we passed the more exciting portions of our trip- the rockies and the pentagon.
