He began yelling at the men over the noise of the storm, "Argh! We must bring down the sails, men! You and you... bring them down!" He called out to a pirate wearing a stripped sweater and another one with a bandanna. The pirate with the bandanna began shimmying up the mast to the crow's-nest. The pirate wearing the stripped sweater climbed behind him.

Dr. Zavares tightened the final screw on his contraption. The beakers in the center of the room bubbled with activity. "Computer," he announced to the empty room, "Zavares needs a lemonade." A beeping and grinding noise sounded in the distance. Then a small robot floated into the lab with a glass of lemonade on a platter. Dr. Zavares grabbed the lemonade from the platter and drank it. He then returned the glass to the floating platter and the robot hovered away. "Well, here goes nothing," Dr. Zavares said to himself as he reached for the power switch on his latest contraption.

Carrie walked through the doors of the building with her package in hand. There was no line so she walked right up to the counter. She handed the man her package. He placed it on a creaky scale, turned a knob, and adjusted some weights. "One pound and four ounces," He said, writing down the number on a ledger. He did some multiplication on a notepad and looked up at her from behind his glasses. Then he asked, " It's going to Boston?" She nodded. " That'll be 44 cents." She opened her change purse and removed the coins, placing them on the counter. " Thank you kindly, Sir," she remarked before departing.
