Quite honestly, it was absolutely humiliating. Before the Shift happened, Bruce had been an all-around great athlete. He excelled in baseball, football, track, and just about anything else you could think of. But now he couldn't even catch a ball headed for his head. The woman he ended up swapping with had bad eyes. For the nearsightedness, he got some contact lenses instead of using the glasses she wore. But there was little he could do for her poor depth perception. He knew he'd have to try to adjust, but it really wasn't easy.

Could Get Worse

"I told you that you had 24 hours," Harrison explained to Mary, "Twenty four hours to fix our swapped bodies. Now, I get serious."

Mary's law dropped when Harrison pulled out a pair of scissors and lobbed off a big chunk of her hair.

"This is just the beginning, Mary. If you don't fix this and get us back into our own bodies, I am going to do so much worse things to your body, so you better find a way to swap us back as soon as possible."

Too Good To Be True

"If the deal seemed too good to be true...that's because it was," Kevin told Mona, saying the final bit with a shake of his head and a bit of taunting sing-song style to his voice.

Weeks ago, he had come into the coffee shop and made Mona an offer to swap bodies. She couldn't believe it. She made only a little more than minimum wage working as a barista; Kevin's suit looked like it cost more than she made in a month. He had a high paying job on Wall Street and a pent house apartment in Lower Manhattan. If she agreed to this, that would all be hers. How could she say no?

When she returned to the cafe that day with a sour look on her face, Kevin knew exactly what had happened. He was being indicted for insider trading, or, rather, Mona was being indicted, now that she was the one in his body. He may be a poor barista now, but he wasn't going to jail.

Secret Magic Diet

Anytime Sam sat down to eat in public, people would come and ask how he could stay so thin. He was always stuffing his face with a lot of fatty food. They asked if he had a secret magic diet. He didn't have a diet, but he did have a magic secret. He had the ability to switch bodies. Any time he felt like he was gaining weight, he'd just swap bodies with someone thin. In fact, he just swapped bodies with a skinny Asian woman. The first thing he did was go out and pig out on some doughnuts. Sure enough, with his mouth full, a person came up to him and asked how he managed to stay so skinny.

Jeffrey showed a lot of promise on his college baseball team, at least before the Great Shift hit. When he found himself in the body of a woman, he was depressed. He could no longer pitch the way he used to, but maybe he could keep trying. After all, he hadn't always been good at baseball. It took many years of hard work for him to get good the first time. But how fast could he turn it around this time? And even if he did, would anyone accept a woman in the sport?

Hold Your Tongue

Wyatt did his best to bite his lip and hold his tongue as Mia told him the news. She couldn't swap their bodies back to normal, not yet. The machine she had invented needed to recharge, and it wouldn't be working for the next 24 hours. Wyatt wasn't sure if she was lying, but he figured it best not to anger Mia. She had used that weird machine to switch their bodies in the first place, and if he didn't cooperate, she might find another excuse to keep them stuck like this longer. And, of course, if he ended up stuck in this body over the weekend, he'd miss the big game and let the entire college down. He was the best linebacker stuck in the body of a small Asian woman. And Mia had plenty of reasons to want to take his body for good; he could only hope this was only temporary as she promised.

Jaw Dropping

John's jaw dropped when he suddenly found himself looking at his own face. Then he looked over to see Mike, and he was in a downright panic. The only other person sitting at the table had been Mike's girlfriend, Jenna. And if he was no longer himself and he wasn't Mike that meant...

He couldn't believe it! He was in Jenna's body! He just kept looking back and forth at his former body and Mike in shock with his mouth wide open. He wasn't even able to form a single word to express his surprise.
