Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

While cruising at flight level, we heard the following between an American Airlines airliner and Miami Center:

Airliner:
"Center, American XXXX looking for higher."

Miami Center (female voice):
"Didn't hear you check in."

Airliner:
"First time I've heard your voice. I must've forgotten."

Miami Center
"That happens when you're over twenty-six or -seven."

Airliner:
"I hope you're talking thousands of feet."

Center:
"No. Age.

"Sorry."
