Like a good neighbor

George had been out mowing his lawn when a bright light blinded him. He fell to the ground with a thud. He cleared his vision by blinking a few times and was wondering how he ended up on his neighbor’s walkway. It got even weirder for him when he realized he had the body of his neighbor’s daughter who was back in town after her first year at college. It wasn’t long before he found out the entire neighborhood had switched bodies. And a little longer before they all realized that the phenomenon had affected the entire world!

Leaf blower

His wife had been nagging him all week, Jospeh wasn’t going to let a little thing like the Great Shift get in the way of his chores this weekend! The 40 year old man had gone out to blow the leaves when he switched bodies with their 20-something year old neighbor, who was about to head out into the city to do some shopping. His wife, now in the body of their son, begged Joseph to come back inside to help deal with the chaos. He insisted that there was little he could do and told her that he was taking care of things she had been bugging him about for a long time!

Lottery

Brent and Ashley had been friends since they were in first grade, but the two had very different upbringings. Brent was born to rich parents, ended up going to Columbia University, and scored a high paying job on Wall Street. Ashley lived a tough life and though she finished high school, she had to get a low-paying job right after to help her family. They kept in touch through the years, and one night over drinks Ashley drunkenly wished she had Brent’s life. Brent smiled and told her that if he could give it to her, he would, not thinking of any possible consequence. But something magical must’ve been listening, as the two instantly found themselves in the other’s body. The two could barely fathom what had happened to them, but for the time being they agreed to pretend to be each other, otherwise people would think they were crazy! Brent got on the subway to head to Ashley’s home. He dug through her purse to find a lottery ticket with one part still not scratched off. Discovering he just won $50 million made being stuck in Ashley’s body seem not all that bad!

Going native

It was quite amazing that the remote tropical paradise had gone undiscovered for so long. Only in the last decade or so had the small island opened up to tourism and commerce; the natives were quite unhappy about it. They often captured tourists and performed rituals on them. Bruno had been vacationing resting at night on the beach when the islanders swooped him up. He awoke at sunrise tied to a post. There appeared to be a young native woman tied up facing him a few feet away. As the sun lifted in the sky, he noticed her body change. She became taller and more masculine. She started to look a lot like him, in fact. At the same time, Bruno shrunk, slowly turning into her! Bruno cursed. No one would believe who he really was! He wouldn’t be able to use his passport to get back home. He’d be stuck here forever, and that was exactly the natives plan..

As Todd wiped the makeup off of his face, he started to smile. It was the first time since swapping bodies this morning that he actually felt happy and at peace. Thanks to the discovery of all that cash in her suitcases, he finally had a plan. With that sort of money, he could live any sort of life he pleased. It really no longer mattered that he was in this woman’s body; he would have it made! He’d probably stay a few more nights in the hotel while he searched for a place to live; he’d also need to buy new clothes.

It wasn’t hard for Zach to get hired at a strip club, thanks to Denise’s body. He was hired on the spot with his first shift two days later. However, after his first dance, Zach wasn’t feeling so confident. It felt weird being ogled by men like that. As he sat backstage, a bouncer told Zach he had a “very special visitor.” He didn’t like the sound of that. It turned out not to be anything sleazy. There was an agent in the crowd who saw “star potential” in Zach. It would seem that Zach’s first night as a stripper would also be his last.

As the plain clothes officers escorted Brandon away, leading him to a jail cell for the night, he did his best to try and get out of it. He started by trying the truth, explaining that it had been an accident and a mistaken. When that didn’t seem to have any effect, he attempted to flirt a little bit, as weird as it felt with this new body, but that didn’t work either. He attempted to offer a bribe, a deal, anything! It just seemed that he was doomed and digging himself further into this mess that he had made.
