158 linear centimetres

Checked luggage may measure 158 linear centimetres. That's the width, plus the height, plus the length. If it is larger, you must pay NZ$311.
I have a suitcase which measures precisely 158cm if it sucks in its stomach and doesn't drink too much water before a photoshoot. If I have it wrong, however, I will have to pay $311 three times: once in Toronto, once in Los Angeles, and once in Fiji.

Maybe I should just leave all these explosives here.
