Your co-passenger on a flight can make or break your journey. While some people want to watch a movie or sleep, others love to chat. It’s rare to find a co-passenger who makes your flight better, but Kati got lucky with a 6-year-old girl who made her day. Kati, known as @KatiHartwig on Twitter, shared the hilarious and heartwarming conversation they had, showcasing the little girl’s sass and wit.

As the little girl settled next to her, Kati knew the ride would be memorable. “I’m going to talk to you randomly, so you need to be prepared, ok?” said the 6-year-old. Prepared? Kati definitely was not. Kati Hartwig, a digital media specialist for Columbus Regional Airport, documented the conversation on Twitter, where it went viral, amassing over 400K likes. When some speculated she had made up the conversation, Kati told Bored Panda, "Honestly, I’m flattered they think I could make up something that funny! But I really do believe that as we grow up, we are jaded, and that causes a lot of doubts, even when things are fun.”
