“Do you have any idea what page you read from, Mom?” Harvey asked, “Honestly, I leave one book out from my wizardry college and you just happen to read a body swap spell. Now I’ve got to dig through thousands of pages to find the reversal, because I don’t want to be spending too much time in your body.”

Harvey’s mom tried to hide her smile. There was something humorous to her about seeing her son struggle with aspects of her body.

“I get that you think it’s funny to see me stumbling around in your heels, and I’m not exactly comfortable in the rest of your clothes either. But your glasses keep sliding off your nose, which is making it difficult to read this book, so if you could stop laughing and start helping, I’d really appreciate it.”

“Help! Help!” Jack screamed once he realized he was drowning in the lake. It didn’t make any sense. He was such an excellent swimmer, but suddenly he had just felt so disoriented.

“Help” He screamed one more time, expecting his lungs to fill with water any second. Instead, he found himself continuing to breathe air. In fact, he was no longer in the water at all but standing on the shore instead. He was confused, and when he looked down it only got worse. He realized the body he now saw wasn’t his own.

Soon enough, a person came along to investigate Jack’s earlier cries for help, and asked Jack what was wrong.

“I guess I’m drowning,” Jack replied, “Or my body is drowning. It’s over there in the lake.

“You’re drowning?” The person asked.

“I was. I’m Not anymore, I guess. I really don’t know what’s going on...”

Bad Trip (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
It took Nick a while to accept that he had really swapped bodies with someone else. For almost a week, he kept expecting the trip to end and he’d be back in the warehouse. However, once he came to terms with the fact that the Great Shift was reality, he tried not to let his new body get int he way of his lifestyle. He still loved going to raves in odd warehouses or out in the dessert. It also didn’t take long for Nick to make sure his new body’s outfits matched his own sense of style, much to the chagrin of his new body’s original owner and her husband. None of their criticism mattered much to him, however. He just wanted to continue being himself.

Bad Trip

It wasn’t uncommon for Nick to go to a warehouse party and not leave until the sun came up the next morning. Getting down to the electronic music and doing plenty of drugs just made the time slip by. But it was on one of these morning, he was starting to think he was having a bad trip. It was as if he wasn’t at the warehouse at all. It felt like he was instead on a quiet deck outside a house, sipping on some sort of green juice. Even stranger, he was hallucinating that his body was some sort of young suburban mom or something. But the odd thing was that he no longer felt high, nor could he hear or feel the music. It would take him a while to realize that this wasn’t a trip at all; he had actually swapped bodies with a suburban mom because of The Great Shift.

Store Display

Brad would often walk by the store display at night on his way home from work. He usually didn’t give much notice to the mannequins behind the glass of the closed shop, but today he stopped. For just a moment, he swore he saw one of the mannequins move. He was sure he was seeing things, so he decided to be on his way, but he was frozen in place. He couldn’t move. His body had tensed up. He was sure that his skin was starting to look like plastic just before his vision went dark.

It cleared a few moments later, but he realized he was now on the other side of the glass. His skin seemed fleshy again, and he could move. He looked outside to where he had been to see a male mannequin standing there wearing the clothes he had been wearing. Then he looked down a yellow dress he had seen in the window. It seemed impossible, but he somehow switched places with one of the mannequins -- except he was a real woman while his own body was now lifeless plastic. He realized he’d have to wait until morning when they unlocked the store. He had no idea how he was going to explain how he got in here to anyone, but he had all night to think of a good excuse. Surely no one would buy the truth!

Tony couldn’t help but think it strange when his best friend Dave suddenly seemed to disappear off the face of the Earth. Dave no longer showed up to work, didn’t return texts, or even answer his phone. It wasn’t until nearly two months later when Tony got a strange text from an unknown number claiming to be from Dave, asking to be picked up. When Tony arrived, instead of Dave, he saw a blond woman waiting.

The woman flagged down Tony and tried to explain quickly. “I know it’s hard to believe,” The woman said, “But it’s me. It’s Dave. About eight weeks ago, I hailed this cab, but it was this weird body swapping cab. I ended up as the driver for a while until I picked up this woman, and then I became her.”

Tony was pretty sure this woman was crazy. Body swapping taxis? Yeah, right! He thought she might even be a murderer or something. But with Dave’s disappearance, he was going to at least listen to what she had to say.

Flexible (Part 4)

Click here for Part 3.
Jason was quite relieved when he learned about the Great Shift and how almost everyone in the world had swapped bodies with someone else. He also settled into his new body quite well, finding just about any excuse to utilize his new flexibility. His wife, however, found it quite obnoxious to see him doing the most ordinary tasks like flipping through a magazine by bending over backwards and flipping the pages with his feet. She wondered if he was showing off or rubbing it in, since she had found herself in a body with aching joints. For the most part, Jason was still just amazed at what he could do. It was more like a weird addiction and he just never wanted to stop.
