Or, mortality at play:

Fellow Traveler: She’s kinda cute, right?

Me: Nice legs. Definitely attractive, in a… [struggling] …young kinda way.

Fellow Traveler: What does that mean?

Me: Means I’m getting old.

It also means that they’re getting younger all the time

At the risk of coming off like Uncle Gus from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I find this to be an interesting development:

Following the recent dissolution/reorganization of Greek national airline Olympic Airlines, the only carrier with direct flights between the U.S. and Greece is now Delta Air Lines. While Delta is a born-and-bred American company, it’s got a Greek name and corporate logo, despite origins that are less Hellenic and more Mississippian.

So it’s a happy coincidence that regular fliers between the two countries simply traded one Greek brand for another (more or less). If Greece was a bigger market, I guess Delta could amp up the marketing angle to emphasize the etymological symbolism. As is, it’s probably a more palatable situation to the anti-American contingents over there than it would be if American or United was the main jet-connection to the States.
