Jerry ignored Phil’s rants and brought the boat around to where Crystal had jumped in. He ran to the side to see his body in the water still floundering about. He threw down a life preserver.

“My body aches!” She yelled up at him.

“I told you we should just wait for the tide to bring the medallion in!” He yelled back at her, “My bones always tend to ache while swimming! I’m glad you’re still okay!”

She sighed, figuring he was right. She couldn’t help but think the next few days in Jerry’s body would be absolutely awful.

Who's Who?

Paul paced nervously back and forth by the altar at the church. It was only about an hour before he’d be married to the most wonderful woman ever. But then he felt queasy and collapsed. He slowly opened his eyes to see his bride-to-be screaming. This was bad luck! He wasn’t supposed to see her before the wedding! She was also screaming that her name was Phil. Uncle Phil? He had thought his bride had gone crazy until he realized that he was also in a different body. He was in the body of her maid-of-honor, Lucy. What was going on here? How was Uncle Phil in his bride’s body? How was he in Lucy’s body? Was everyone in the wrong body? Where was his wife? Who was in his body? Who was who?

Gas station

Diane pulled her minivan into the gas station with her son, Harry. While she pumped gas, he went in to grab a chocolate milk. A few minutes passed before a woman exited a gas station carrying a chocolate milk. She got into the back of Diane’s minivan and spoke, “Come on, Mom! Let’s go!”

Diane was confused, but not as confused as Mark, who was sitting in a nearby sportscar. His wife had just gone in for a pack of cigarettes. A boy came out and got into his passenger seat. “Can you believe the clerk refused to sell me cigarettes, Honey? He said I looked underage!”

Meanwhile, an old man inside smiled as he paid the gas attendant $100. A small fee for being able to try out his mind-switching device on unsuspecting
victims.

Old man

Ryan felt terrible for his sister Gwen. The Great Shift had really screwed her over. He had been lucky--swapping bodies with a guy about the same age as him. But Gwen ended up in the body of an old man. She tried her best to continue with her life as though nothing had happened, but it was just so awkward to see a senior citizen dressed up like a 20-year-old woman.

Delicious

Angela had swapped bodies with her husband, Frank, in hopes of teaching him a lesson about how hard her housework each day was. However, he was quick to adapt to her life, cooking delicious dinners and finishing the cleaning in record time. Plus, he loved not having to go to the office everyday. It was going to be hard to convince him to switch back!

Responsibility (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Herman felt a little bad about impersonating this woman’s daughter, but he couldn’t resist the temptation once the Great Shift swapped him into the young body. He had the chance at a new life, to be young and carefree again. He had a stressful life with a lot of responsibility; he jumped at the possibility for a life free of worry.

And so neither Herman nor Jack ever told the other that neither were who they appeared to be. Both thought the other hadn’t been shifted. Herman kept it a secret from Jack to live out the fantasy of being a child; Jack kept it a secret from Herman thinking that a child needed a stabilizing force in life, like an unshifted mother.

Duplicate

Tyler was showing off a weird ray gun he had found to his best friends Jake and Roger. All three boys were talking about how cool it was when it went off in Tyler’s hand, zapping his two friends. The beam from the ray transformed both boys into an exact copy of Tyler’s sister, Tara! As bad as that was, it got worse when Tyler discovered the change wasn’t only physical; both of his friends thought they actually were Tara! They started picking on Tyler, as Tara often did, but then they noticed each other. Both started freaking out at what they thought was a duplicate of themselves. Tyler zapped them again, hoping to fix the situation...
