The next day, after school, Karyn walked home with me. Karyn was thoughtful and absentminded, until we finally entered my home.

"I've been thinking about the stone," she said. "I'd really like to see how life is from another point of view. Let's wish for ourselves to be someone else. Not permanently, of course, but for a week or a month or something. And let's make it random, so that we can experience a real life, and not only choose the life of some rich playboy or -girl."

"I'm don't know. What if we land into a dangerous life, and die? Or get a gruesome and horrid life that scars us for the rest of our lives?"

"That's part of the thrill, to me, not knowing what we'll get.But to be on the safe side, we should return to our own bodies if we die or anything. And we could always use the stone to wish away any really unpleasant memories."

"Okay, I guess." I gave Karyn the stone. "You've obviously thought it through, so I'll let you word the wish."

"I wish," she said, "that for the next month, we will become two random persons. We will know each other, we will know who we really are, and we will know everything the person we become knows, and feel an urge to act accordingly to the nature of the person we become, and if we die, we will be returned to our own bodies. Whoever we become, those people will become us, but will act accordingly to our personality, unable to do something we wouldn't have done."
