Welcome to the twenty-fourth issue of OVERLAP ⧉
The ride to the airport takes twice as long as it should. The flight is delayed. Then it’s canceled. Then it’s rebooked to Fort Lauderdale. (I am definitely going to Fort Lauderdale.) There’s another flight, booked on the spot — in another terminal — at another gate — then another gate. There are 30 or 40 planes ahead of us waiting to take off. We might be sitting on the runway for a while.
