Short runway, shorter fuse, and usually carrying less animated cargo...

Tower: Understand you're without cargo today. If you're light, cleared for runway 6.

N1234: All I have on board is my wife ... and she's heavy, but not THAT heavy.

(pause)

Tower: Roger N1234, and she's flying with you, now?

N1234: Yep, she's got her headset on and is punching the heck out of me. Cleared to land runway 6, N1234.

Tower: Copy. ...We'll roll the trucks.
