It started off like a normal morning. At about seven, Jason’s alarm went off and he begrudgingly shuffled to the bathroom. Still half asleep, he started on his normal routine until he looked in the mirror. Instead of his own reflection looking back, it was Leah’s, his wife. For a few minutes he poked, prodded, and pulled -- not quite believing what he was seeing. He pinched himself to make sure this wasn’t all just a dream. Had they swapped bodies in the middle of the night somehow?
He rushed out of the bathroom and back to the bed. He heard a light snore and pulled back the covers. His wife was still there with her own body. They hadn’t swapped; he just somehow became a copy of her. He shook Leah awake. She was certainly surprised to see her own face looking back at her. She breathed a sigh of relief as she checked her own body to make sure she was still herself, and then the couple began to talk.
