Susan woke up to her alarm going off. A little groggy, she reached to turn it off and then realized her chest didn't move like normal. She then fully woke up and remembered last night. She smiled to herself as she ran her hands of Alan's female body, her old body. She got off the bed and went to the bathroom and enjoyed peeing standing up. When she was done, she went to the mirror to wash her hands. She flexed in the mirror and then stroked her penis. She heard Alan get out of bed to turn off the other alarm.
"Good morning sleepyhead," said Susan.
"Good morning," replied Alan as he sat on the toilet to use the bathroom.
"We should probably change before work starts. I'm thinking today you help Scott get ready, and I'll get "changed."
"Sounds like a plan," said Alan as he washed his hands. He left the bathroom with a quick, what he hoped was a sexy glance, and then got dressed in some yoga pants and a t-shirt. He went town the hall to knock on Scott's door to get him up for school. The two went to the kitchen and Alan poured the boy some cereal and a glass of OJ. The two talked a little about how exciting school is. Alan herded his son into the hall bathroom so he could brush his teeth and finish getting ready for school.
"Susan. Can you come here for a minute?" asked Susan after peaking out their bedroom door mostly dressed.
"I can't find the medallion," announced Susan, "I looked on the floor, in the sheets, under the bed and in the drawer I opened last night. I don't know how much time I can look."
"I can look today. I'll take a day off. It's probably for the best, since I don't know how to do your job."
"I don't know how to do yours either"
"Hon, my job is just sales. You make calls to try to people to see if they need the electronics, or send e-mails or set up meetings. It isn't rocket science."
Susan looked a bit skeptically at her husband, who was still in her body. There was a slight smirk for a split second while Susan was considering her options.
"Fine, " said Susan finally, "I'll go to work as you today. I think you should stay the day here too, since getting ready for work as me takes some work, and you aren't ready for it. Personal training is very personable and you need to customize the work out to the client. I hope you find it. When you do, maybe you can do some stuff around the house."
Susan finished getting dressed, grabbed some food and left the house with Scott.
While driving Scott to school, Susan thought about how she got to stay Alan today, without much fuss. Seems like the plan was coming together. Alan had even proposed the idea...
Once Alan heard the car pull away, he went around the house and pulled down all the blinds. He checked the drawer to make sure the medallion was there. That morning he did a work out on the home machines, since he had some extra energy that morning. He did some dishes and laundry. Just before noon, the doorbell rang. It was the neighbor, Samantha.
"Hey Susan, mind if I come in?" she said as she walked through the door. Alan and Susan were friendly with their neighbors, sometimes having eachother over for dinner. Alan and Susan would sometimes keep an eye on Sam's two teenage children if they were home alone before their parents came home.
Alan was a little caught off guard.
"What can I do for you Sam?"
"You can shoot my dirty cheating husband. He just told me he was having an affair with his secretary. The bastard. That secretary must be only 20. Granted he is hot, but still.."
"Wait, Randy is gay?"
"Bisexual apparently. Who knew? I didn't. Apparently he had a male lover in high school, before we started dating, but he was 'too ashamed' to tell me before we got married. Sorry Susan, but I didn't know who else to talk to. I didn't want to tell my family yet, or the kids. You and Alan have been so nice to us, I just thought I could rant for a bit."
"Sam, you talk all you want." said Alan not knowing what else to say.
"Do you have any alcohol? I could kill for a margarita right now."
"I have some wine."
Alan got some wine out of their stash in the cabinet above the fridge. He turned around and Sam grabbed the bottle and started to open it with the bottle opener.
"That asshole, we have been married for 17 years, and now this. I gave him most of my twenties and thirties Susan. I only worked parttime in retail so he could focus on his career. Men, am I right?" Sam said offering a glass of the white wine to Alan.
"Yea, men. Can't live with them, can't live without them?" said Alan as Sam already finished off one glass and had poured herself a second. Alan started to sip at his glass.
"I think I'm going to try to get half of everything, and live the life for a couple months before I work on next steps. Maybe try the Eat/Pray/Love thing. Or maybe like Wild, without the drugs, " Sam pounded another glass of wine. While pouring herself a glass, she asked if they could sit on the couch. The two women moved to the living room and took a seat. Sam turned on the TV and put on HGTV. After a few minutes of the episode, and another glass of wine, a new show started on the network.
"Maybe I should be a realtor or designer. I have good taste. That Christina woman make it look easy, and she doesn't need her man to do it, " declared Sam finishing up her third glass as Alan was finishing off his first one.
"I'm sure you'd be great at it. Do you think you should have all that wine?"
"I need this right now. He's off at his new boyfriend's now, after I yelled at him to leave. Thank god the kids were already on the bus to school. Looks like we are running now, can I get another bottle?" Sam asked as she got off the couch to walk to the kitchen, in a line that wasn't quite straight.
"Sam, you may want to get some water instead," suggested Alan.
"Sure Susan, I'll do that." Susan heard the cabinets being opened and the tap turn on. Then she heard another cabinet open, and some clinking. A minute later, Sam came back with another bottle of wine that was open. She pour herself another glass and topped off Susan.
"Susan, I think we need a girl's afternoon. Just you and me."
