I’m sitting next to an overweight man on an aircraft. He scarfs down a giant, greasy slice of pizza. I think nothing of it – just another staple of the typical American diet.
A half hour into the flight, he gets the attention of a flight attendant.
“My TV has no sound.”
“I’m sorry, sir, we don’t have any way of fixing it now. Can I bring you a free drink or something?”
“No, I’m on dialysis. I can’t drink.”
I look his giant, empty pizza box and go back to my book.
