“I’m growing boobs!” David exclaimed as he stood in front of the mirror, hands slightly above his chest.
“Boobs, dude!” David retorted as he turned his friend’s way. “Are you deaf or what? Just look at this…” and pointed at his bare torso. “Does it look natural to you?”
“Hell no! I haven’t touched the stuff in months! Are you serious? You really can’t see them?”
“But I can see them and feel them! They’re right here and they’re growing, honestly!” continued David completely befuddled. “Give me your hands so you can touch them and see I’m not lying!”
“I’m not touching any part of you, okay? Geez, what is wrong with you, today?”
“Wait a second… last night?” Samuel inquired as he suddenly remembered something. “You went out with Jennifer last night, didn’t you?”
“Did you guys drink anything?”
“I’m thinking she might have spiked your drink with something that’s making you have these delusions right now…”
“I don’t know… maybe you tried to push things way too fast, and she decided to teach you a lesson. There are numerous chemical substances that can induce certain hallucinogenic states where people see and feel things that aren’t really there and she’s majoring in Chemistry, isn’t she?”
“Stay right here. I’m going to Jennifer’s dorm to straighten things out!” Samuel declared, convinced he had hit the jackpot.

“Now, there’s a surprise!” she smiled. “How are you?”
A faint giggle escaped her lips.
“Because of what you’re studying… What happened last night, Jennifer? What did he do to deserve such a thing?”
“David got a little carried away in the drinking game at the restaurant and tried to touch me where I didn’t want to be touched and certainly not in public! After we were practically expelled from the place—much to my shame!—, I played with his head for a while but I’m not really a vengeful person so you have nothing to worry about! Your friend will get back to normal in forty-eight hours tops and the best part of it all is that he won’t remember anything of what’s happening right now…”
“Oh, it wasn’t a drug!” she responded as her face became warm and cheerful once more.
“Do you really want to know?” she challenged him.
“Then, I guess I will have to show you…” She fiddled with the blue necklace around her neck. “I was wearing this last night and…”
David was in shock when he saw his friend walking in like a hunchback, hands below his waist level and apparently attempting to lift something heavy although he couldn’t see a thing.
“Ah…” Samuel interjected, rather disdainfully. “Consider yourself lucky you don’t have a pair of these! Where the hell am I going to find a bra that’s strong enough to hold them?”
