Re-Cap:


In our last episode, our shifter found himself, once again, behind the mind of a first-grader. But in that event, he had been fighting to keep the kid’s reputation in order by not dropping a bomb in his britches directly in the middle of class. It’s been a full 48 hours since then and now we pick back up on his antics….



It had been a rousing week in the expanse of space. I had enjoyed a good night’s sleep before getting back on with my obsession. You stare too long at these monitors and everything starts blending together, including your days. Not only is the constant discerning of differences a diligent task, but shifting into and out of these bodies is also a very stressful thing.

That bit of restfulness, during my unconscious nighttime hours, is probably the most blissful reward of the hobby—ff not only because of the way the superconcious effort of the labor makes me look forward to it that much more. There are quirks though. Shifting, in it self, never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think I have experienced every last thing on the planet, some person’s body that I shift into, surprises the hell outta me, all over again. Just like yesterday; I was getting exceedingly bored with the same old situations. You know, nearly every person puts on their pants the same way, shops the same way, and even has the same conversations! But, the last one of the day really surprised me.
