Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

I was flying my shift as a traffic watch pilot in a Cessna 172 here in Southern California and had just contacted March Air Force Base approach to transit their Class C airspace.

Me:
"March approach, good afternoon. Traffic Watch One Two Three, 35,000 feet."

March Approach:
"Traffic Watch One Two Three, roger. Do you mean 3,500?"

Me:
"Yes, sir 3,500. Did I say '35,000'?"

March Approach:
"Uh, yeah. I was wondering what kind of traffic you're looking at from that altitude."
