Status: O HOME **** I'm going in tomorrow to have my genes altered. I can't wait to start my new life. My brother went to Mars. His lungs are bellows now, and his skin is thick and dark like a radial tire. He can't stand Earth's humidity, but we still talk on the vidphone. I know a guy who had his bones lightened; now he glides from redwood to redwood on leathery membranes. I'm going even more radical. I'm going to regress. I shall be a creature of gills and flippers, crawling mindlessly back into the mire we once emerged from. I'm going home. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
