I thought my last flight was going to take off with several open seats when at the last moment before the door closed a busload of German nuns boarded the plane. At first it made me feel safer to have them on the flight, but then it occurred to me that they probably would have nothing to fear whether or not the plane went down. One of them ended up sitting next to me after the stewardess made her get out of the exit row since she couldn't understand English very well. She ended up right next to me, and after she sat down she sneezed. I looked at her and said, "Bless you," then I nodded and thought, "Yeah, that's right. Back at ya." The plane also did not crash.
