"Yes," said Jon's mother to herself. "I wish Jon could be a little more like Karyn." It was as if she thought saying her thoughts out loud would make them come true. Little did she know that they would come true.
As she put the rock back into Jon's hiding place, she thought she saw something odd in his mirror. "Huh?" She closed the panel over the hiding place, turned around, and looked into the mirror. "I'm ... white!" Mrs. Parker had been Asian until a few seconds ago. Now she was a busty blue-eyed blonde. Her face was similar yet oddly like someone she'd met before ... but who? "What happened!? The rock ... no, it couldn't be!"
She ran out into the hallway and froze at the sight of a portrait of her family. Everyone was in the same poses with the same expressions as before. Zoe stood out struggling to fake a smile while trapped in conventional clothes. But only her husband was exactly the same. He was still white. Jon, Zoe, and Mikey had lost their Asian side. They were a clan of five Caucasians now.
"NO!!" Mrs. Parker had nothing against white people - she had married one, after all - but she never wanted to become white.
The phone rang. "Great!" Mrs. Parker wondered if she should bother to answer it. How could she, looking like this? Wait, what was she thinking? No one would see her at the other end.

[Author's note: Mrs. Parker doesn't know that Karyn has turned into a busty blonde. The Karyn she knows is a redhead. So it doesn't occur to her that her son has become a little more like Karyn - i.e., a blonde Caucasian - and that she and the rest of the family have changed to be consistent with the new Jon.]
