On a short flight to San Jose, snack service started shortly after takeoff. The flight attendant asked a passenger if he would like some peanuts with his drink. “Yes! Thank you, I’m starving!” he said, and quickly opened the bag.
After a few moments, he heard a tiny voice.
The seat next to him was empty. He shrugged and took another sip of his drink.
“You have great hair. Very shiny.”
The tiny voice spoke again. He quickly looked around, but the other passengers near him were either dozing or talking to each other. The voice was clearly speaking to him and it was close by.
“You smell really nice today.”
The man thought he must be going crazy. He flagged down a passing flight attendant and asked, “Wait, stop. Shhh. Do you hear a tiny voice?”
Just then, the tiny voice spoke up.
“Look at those teeth! So pearly white!”
“See?!?” said the man. “Do you hear it?”
The flight attendant smiled.
“Yes, it’s the peanuts.”
The man looked at the bag. “Peanuts?”
“Yes,” said the flight attendant, “They’re complimentary.”
