Pros and Cons
Instead of panicking after the Great Shift hit, Rick tried to do an inventory of the pros and cons of being in a different body. Being younger and more in shape, those were both pros. He wasn’t sure whether to put being a woman into the pro or con category. The biggest con was that he had no idea who he now was. Of course, he decided that he could easily do something about this. The woman was carrying a purse; that seemed like a big pro as it likely contained a lot of information. However, he never imagined how much crap a woman could keep in one of these; he decided to add that to the con category. It took a while, but he finally found her license, a set of keys, and a smartphone. She had gotten a lot of calls in the short time since the Shift, but the ringer had apparently been on mute. He thought about calling his own number, but her phone was locked and he had no idea what her password could be -- clearly a con.
