Ralph really wanted to panic. His vision had blanked for a moment. When it returned, he found himself at some strange society party for rich wives. They were yammering on and on about their husbands, the pains of having so much money, and so on. The weirdest part was that Ralph now appeared to be in the body of one of these wives. Whatever happened to him had apparently not happened to any of the rest of them, as they continued to talk. Ralph just kept looking back and forth as they talking, hoping this would be over soon so that he could freak out about this without seeming completely crazy.
