Marriage Counselor

Noah and his wife, Alana, had been seeing a marriage counselor for abotu a decade now. It had helped keep their relationship stable and strong. In their latest session, the councelor had recommend a brand new technology that they could use to further enhance their bond, a body swapper. Noah questioned it. He never heard of it before, but Alana jumped on the idea. Noah didn’t want to seem like he was holding back, so he soon agreed as well. The counselor pulled out a device, and soon Noah was in Alana’s body and Alana was in Noah’s. The counselor told them they should spend a week as each other, doing whatever the other would do. This meant Alana was now going to Noah’s job, and Noah was going to the grocery store and making dinner. As he walked through the aisles, he didn’t mind it, but he missed working. He guessed this was how Alana had felt when they divided the responsibilities this way. After the week was up, he couldn’t wait to be back in his own body. But that morning, they got a phone call. The receptionist told them the counselor had gone missing. They asked about the body swapper, but the receptionist had no idea what they were talking about. It looked like they’d continue to be stuck as each other!
