Jeremy was in an airport, sitting in the holding area, waiting for an airplane. He had just consulted the departures board. Half the planes had been marked delayed. He hadn't known why. It had been a bright and sunny summer day. Anyway, he sat, slowly reading Greek, waiting for his plane.

He looked up and noticed that the holding area was entirely empty. Even the crossword-puzzle-selling woman was gone. He looked up at the board. All the flights had been cancelled.

He walked back the way he'd come. Finally he met a man, who said, "Didn't you get the notice?"
