The buckle on my lap belt is facing the wrong way.

I have to fix it. If I don’t, then I’m pretty sure we’ll have an incident (I’m flying out of Monterey, so incidents are expected), and I will be trapped in a burning/sinking/Langolier-devouring plane because my seatbelt won’t release.

The Monterey airport has the reverse Hotel California curse. I can leave, but never return.

Even though my group is last to board, I have time to reverse the buckle on the strap and save everyone from destruction.

Well, from airplane related destruction. People travel their own paths and some folks are probably going to self-destruct.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Perfect location for a Langolier vacation.
