Transcendence



Janet was a mozzarella cheese in Steve’s fridge. She just sat in the dark and hummed the theme song to The Persuaders, which was her favorite TV show. But about four weeks after her expiry date, Janet began to feel different.

A month later, she changed her last name to Gorgonzola and joined Steve’s acapella group as an alto.
