Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

The following exchange took place en route to the opening day at Sun 'n Fun one April:

Me:
"Jacksonville Center, Bonanza Four Seven Two Zero Yankee. 11,000."

Center:
"Bonanza Four Seven Two Zero Yankee, roger. Jacksonville altimeter 30.12."

Me:
"Are you working a lot of traffic to Lakeland this afternoon?"

Center:
"I'll tell you what: If you fell out of your airplane right now, you'd never hit the ground."
