It was Jose’s fifth interview this morning. He was quite exhausted, and he didn’t entirely see what the big deal was. He was the first patient to have his brain transplanted into a new body. There were a lot of questions about the fact that the body’s donor was female and even more about ethical implications. A few of the interviewers were taken aback by Jose’s urban and Hispanic accent coming from the mouth of a blonde white woman with a rather sing-song voice; this always made Jose laugh. Despite all the probing questions, to Jose the decision to undergo the procedure was a no-brainer--he repeatedly apologized for the pun--as it was a simple matter of life or death. He had a rare disease effecting his body and without the surgery he would’ve been dead within the year. How could he not undergo a risky procedure that would allow him to live a normal life? It didn’t matter what body he ended up with--at least he’d be alive! It just happened that the first brain-dead body to be available was female, and the rest was medical history.


  1. Hmm, this is one of your best captions :) I love the fact he's still speaking with a Mexican accent :D Glorious, thanks =)
