"Well, Bob," said the man enthusiastically, "we are hoping that with the new advancements in technology that a whole new world of possibilities will be available. In fact, we have some new things we have been playing with. Alien technology, Bob."
"Alien huh?" Bob asked this with good humor, his professional smile never faltering.
"Of course we don't really mean alien," the guy laughed nervously. "Alien to us now. Soon, we hope, it can be incorporated into every day life. Until then, spoilers."

"Oi, shut it," she whispered to her belly hotly. "I cannot help you right now. So, shut it," she demanded. Slender fingers tapped on the mug. A "gift" from the company. The logo read "Sky Is the Limit" with cheap painted clouds puffed around the words. A tea bag sat inside it. Penelope hoped that it would help ease her aching stomach
