On the flight to Denver.

I stopped a Buddhist Monk before he sat in the middle seat to tell him mine was the window seat, with the intent that I wouldn't have to make him stand back up to let me sit. Annoyed, he said, "It does not matter. If that is where you wish to sit, then you may sit there." After we sat, his traveling companion gave him her iPod to listen to. "I've got hours and hours of lectures by his Holiness," she said. "THIS IS AN IPOD?" he shouted back over the lecture playing on his headphones. As the safety demonstration was proceeding, he took out his cell phone and made a call. After a brief second, he handed the phone to his companion and told her to say hi to Cindy and Charlie. She told them she was sorry, but she had to go as the flight attendants had just told us to turn off all electronic devices. As she was saying this, an attendant came over to her and told her to please turn off her phone. "Oh, you're always getting me in trouble," she told her Monk afterward, as she handed me a stick of gum.
