On a flight to Florida, a young woman was preparing her notes for one of the parent-education seminars she conducts as an educational psychologist.
Making small talk, the elderly woman sitting next to her explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks visiting her six children, 18 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren in Boston.
Then the elderly woman inquired what the young woman did for a living.
The young woman told her, fully expecting to be questioned for free professional advice.
Instead, the elderly woman just sat back and said, "If there's anything you want to know, just ask me."
