Q waved Agent Double-Oh-Seven-and-a-Half over to his side of the test lab.
"Blonde, I've got something to show you. Here, put this sport jacket on."

"A bit stiff in the arms, it seems, Q?"

"Quite right. There are two small tubes that run from containers sewn into the breast. One of them contains a deadly but slow-spreading pathogen, and one of them contains rather ordinary hand sanitizer. The tubes carry these to micro-spray nozzles in the cuff of your right hand. When you go to meet your contact, press the green button on your watch for a quick shot of hand sanitizer, and then give him the secret handwashing handshake of the Wah Ching. The red button releases the pathogen. Press it just before you greet the Wah Ching leader. Do not confuse the two buttons, Double-Oh-Seven-and-a- half, and be sure and push the green button to sanitize yourself after you have pushed the red one. And do not touch any body part before doing that."

"Q, you do of course, realize, that I am colorblind?"

"Damn, I'll have the boys fix that right away..."

       Your own, or someone else's ?

       Good work, [Ray]. [+]. But before anyone notices, you might like to swap out "characterized by" for a different phrase.

       Boy. That IS clunky. Writing test procedures does that to you. Fixed.

       Nice, but now I want to read the clunk.

       What about a glove with a soft pouch full of sanitizer in the palm? Every time you shake someone’s hands, the pressure from the handshake will squeeze out a bit of sanitizer into the glove, cleaning your hand

       The target will be likely to notice you're wearing a glove.

       Hmm, nice idea.
