It started with a casual question.
"What kind of city are you looking for?" the lady asked the man behind her.
Before he had time to answer she started giving him the specs on the city: the racial and class demographic, neighboring cities, tourist attractions, the positives and the negatives of living there.
I was trying to sleep but their conversation was so loud I could not tune them out.
They were strangers that started a friendly back-and-forth for the whole plane to hear.
She proceed to talk about her nursing job after a soft prompt from the man. It turns out the man’s question about how one finds time to pee during long work hours was a way for him to tell his story about how he won three trips on the game show, The Price is Right. He told the story loudly about how he had to pee when they called his name but managed to forget about it and as a result won $19,000 and vacation package to Hawaii and such.
