It was one of the things no one talked much about after The Great Shift; how everything just tasted different. Joe noticed it instantly. Things he used to love now tasted bland; foods that formerly disgusted him were now delicious. He guessed it made sense; after all, he (much like the rest of the world) now had a completely different set of taste buds along with a completely different body.
Still, when the fast food joint reopened by his house, he hoped his fond memories would win out over his new tongue. However, one bite and he was instantly disappointed. The burger was no longer delicious; it was gross. He scowled. He could live with being a woman, but how could he live hating the foods he once loved?
