The Solution

“Look at the gold and white fish,” Diego said.

“I see it, but why is it so important?”  Maeto remarked.

“That, Maeto, is our way out of the country.”

Laughing, Maeto said, “neither of us will fit on it, and you know I don’t do well in water.”

“I’m saying, it’s a special fish!”

“It’s not that special!”

“Oh! But it is!”

“Explain please.”

“You know I have connection with the science department.  My friend Carlos, who works there has developed this fish for us.”

“How nice of him.  However, I still don’t understand how that helps us.”

“We carry the fish in a small container, walk up to the border patrol and when he looks inside the container, we will just casually walk across the border.”

“What have you been drinking?  That’s ridicules!”

“Not really.  The fish will give off wave signals and freeze everything within 500 feet of it for up to ten minutes.”

“We, however, will have a solution in our body that prevents us from freezing.”

“That’s brilliant!  Where is this solution we will drink?”

“Right here in my briefcase.”

“Well, don’t just stand there, let’s go!”
