You Are My Density

The Intrepid Young Journalist received an email from a colleague overseas with the rather charming subject heading, "Kindly do the needful and oblige."

This reminded me of an incident on the Lufthansa flight I took from Frankfurt to New York, during which the (possibly Israeli) gentleman next to me was asked by the people behind us to translate or explain something, and he said, "Oh, it is a bless for the trip, to come safely to the destiny."

Then I imagined airline check-in counters where the employees asked you, "What's your destiny today?"

And then, sometimes, you'd have to sadly answer something like, "Milwaukee."
