Minor Modifications

Frank and Eddie had been friends since college. Even thirty years later, they still found time to hang out about once a month. Frank had arrived at Eddie’s place with a six pack and they were going to watch the game on TV.

He was shocked to have Eddie’s door open and see his college girlfriend, Kelsey standing there. But it was impossible, because it looked like she clearly hadn’t aged a day.

“Do you think I programmed Kelsey’s butt too big?” The woman asked, “Her butt wasn’t this big, was it?”

“What the hell is going on here? Who the hell are you?” Frank yelled in shock.

“Come on, Frank. It’s me. It’s Eddie. This was that thing I’ve been talking about for the past 30 years. I finally worked out all the flaws in the tech. Haven’t you been paying any attention?”

“I guess when you talked about recreating people,  you meant on a computer screen.”

“Nope. Real life. Nano-technology! In fact, I’m indistinguishable from the 20 year old woman you knew 30 years ago -- except for maybe a few gaps in my memory, which is why I asked about the butt.”

“Turn yourself back, man. This is creepy.”

“It took weeks to get like this! It’ll take weeks to go back, but I can make small modifications, so please, just let me know if I need to adjust this butt.”

Not Giving Up

It had been two months since that damned cab ride that temporarily swapped Garret into the driver’s body before then swapping with this woman. He absolutely hated being a woman. He always wore jeans and ball cap, often baggy clothes. The only hit of femininity were the high heels, which he only wore because he felt so much shorter as a woman than he had been. He didn’t want to be a woman, so he did everything he could to find that cab in order to swap back into a man’s body.

He first tried calling the city’s taxi commission. He had written down the number and license, but it didn’t correspond to any cab on record. He called every company, but still came up empty. Eventually, he just started standing on busy streets flagging down cabs. He was sure he’d remember what the driver looked like -- heck, he had been that driver for a few hours. When a taxi would stop, he’d check the number and the face or the driver. If neither matched, he’d let it go, explaining he changed his mind. The driver would usually curse him out for wasting time.

Garret realized he’d probably spent hundreds of hours hailing thousands of cabs at this point, but so far he hadn’t gotten into a single one. Not one matched the magic taxi that had picked him up two months ago.

Always the Bridesmaids

“Do you think we should tell Kate about the body swapping and how her husband-to-be’s groomsmen are now her bridesmaids?” Lyle asked.

“Oh, God, no!” Brendon replied, “She has enough to worry about. Besides, if she didn’t notice last night at the bachelorette party, I doubt she’ll notice today at the wedding.”

“I never expected a bachelorette party to be so much fun. That massage alone was heavenly!”

“I know!” Nathan interjected, “I didn’t expect that I’d like being a woman, but here we are! It’s been bliss. Even these dresses actually feel free and liberating. Heck, I’m not even wearing any underwear! It feels great! I know we’re only supposed to be swapped for a week, but do you think Natalie might be interest in staying swapped?”

“You can ask. I might ask Ashleigh as well.”

In a Pinch

This was not how Thomas had expected his business trip would be going. He had flown out Sunday night, first class. On the plane, he enjoyed a few drinks to help him deal with the stress of flying. With a bit of booze in him, he couldn’t stop himself from pinching the ass of a passing flight attendant. He expected a slap to the face, but instead he was suddenly standing in the aisle with heels on his feet as he poured a drink for another passenger. He couldn’t explain it, but somehow he swapped bodies with the flight attendant he had pinched.

After serving the last few rows of first class, he went back to his own row. He had assumed the flight attendant was now in his body, but she sure didn’t let up pretending to be him. He tried to press the issue, but instead got an apology about the pinch.

There wasn’t much choice. He was going to have to figure out this new life he now had. He was stuck as a woman, many years younger, and with an undoubtedly much lower salary. It all felt so depressing. As he walked through the airport after the slight, he tried to even begin to imagine how he was going to cope.

Jeremy had no idea why the random woman had decided to steal his body or how she had managed to do it, but he was absolutely sure she wasn’t going to get away with it. Even though she dashed off immediately, Jeremy had a tracker on his phone. He just signed into the website and it pulled up a map. The dot indicated she hadn’t gone far; she was still in the mall.

Jeremy walked over as fast as he could while wearing the heeled boots. He seemed to be right on top of his phones; location, but didn’t see his body anywhere. Then not far away he spotted a trash can. He walked over and rummaged through and found his phone. The woman who swapped with him was even more clever than he had hoped, but he still wasn’t giving up. The last thing he wanted was to be stuck in the body of a woman -- even an attractive one!

Celestial Event (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
As Evan started to walk away, Julia shouted, “Come back! You need to fix this!”

Evan sighed turning his head, “I understand the events that transpired; I do not know how to recreate them. And I assure you that I did not anticipate becoming each other.”

The last thing Julia wanted was this nerd out of her sight with her body, “You don’t know the first thing about being a woman! How will you even cope?”

“I assume it is...manageable.”

Julia laughed, “You won’t make it through a week without my help.”

Celestial Event (Part 1)

Julia had been walking on campus, paying more attention to her phone than where she was going. At the same time, Evan has his nose in a book, also seemingly oblivious to those around him. Just as the two were about to bump heads, a beam of light shone between them.

Evan was a bit more prepared for what just happened. He grabbed the glasses from his former face and the book from his old hands.

“Fascinating,” He said, “The celestial event transpired exactly as predicted, but I never could have expected spacial displacement of my corporeal form into another’s anatomy.”

Julia’s processing took a bit longer, but was slightly more blunt. “Holy shit,” She whispered, “I swapped bodies with a dork.”
