It took about a week after the Great Shift for Alex to settle back down into his normal routine. He’d wake up, take a shower, brush his teeth, go to work, come home, watch some TV, and then brush his teeth again before going to bed. In the aftermath of the Shift, he had high hopes that things would be different. After all, he had gone from being a dumpy-looking man to being a cute Asian woman! He had plans to buy an exciting wardrobe, hit the town, and be social. It didn’t come to fruition. Everything just continued as if nothing had changed. He often just threw on an old t-shirt, just like he used to. He couldn’t even find the time to bother with makeup. In many ways, he wanted to take advantage of his new body, but he found it hard to break his old habits. He was still who he was on the inside, no matter what he looked like on the outside.
