“Grab your coats,” Mom instructed. “Looks like it could rain.”
“Whatever happened to sunny California?” Simeon said.
Mom drove north on hwy 880 to hwy 237. The clouds darkened as we went. We drove along the bay lands to a huge futuristic looking building. The light from a colorful company logo shown through the gloom from where it was embedded high in the company wall.
I thought it was was cool looking, but what was it?
“Action Surgical” was frosted on the doors. A classy lady greeted us as we entered the spacious lobby. The glass walls made it seem even bigger. We learned that we could not have a tour because all the work is done in a “clean room.” The employees had to wear “bunny suits” (a paper jumpsuit plus face and hair covering, gloves and shoe covers). All they could do was look from the hall door to see through a window into the closest clean room. The view was so limited that they couldn’t really make out much of anything.
“What do they make in the clean rooms?” Anna asked.
“Let me get you a brochure,” the lady answered. She wore a tight fighting skirt and jacket suit with matching heels that clicked on the floor as she returned to her desk.
Simeon was enjoying looking her up and down when he felt his mom gave him a light smack on his arm.
“What?” he said innocently.
The Meyers group followed the receptionist over to her desk and she handed Anna the brochure.
“Thank you,” said Anna
“Yes, thank you for your time.” Mom added, “Come on, kids.”
Once in the car Anna looked at the brochure, “Listen to this, they make nanobots so small they can fit zillions into a capsule for a person to swallow. They can be programed to do different things.” Anna put the paper down, “Wow! I wonder what kind of things the nanobots can do?”
“Maybe they eat zits,” I said, “and we can get some for Simeon.” I playfully patted his shoulder.
Simeon moved away and replied, “Or maybe we can get some for Jeremy to help his brains.”
Anna rolled her eyes and continued reading. “You guys are not that far off.” She continued, “It says they can be programed to do almost anything.”
