As an 80-year-old man, Al didn’t know much about youthful fashion trends, but when the Great Shift stuck him in the body of a 20-year-old woman, he had to learn quickly. He asked his granddaughter for advice and to borrow some clothes. Just about everything she gave him made him feel ridiculous. He looked down at the faux leather outfit she loaned him, and couldn’t help but feel like the skirt was way too short and the whole thing revealed far too much skin. He couldn’t imagine she ever actually wore this thing out! In fact, she didn’t. Much like many women her age, she was quite prone to buying clothes that seemed cool at the time, but she never had any intention of wearing. She saw the Great Shift and her grandfather’s swap as a good way to unload some stuff and clean out her closet. Plus, she saw it as a bit of a charity; he thought of it as a bit of a curse.
