A Benevolent Decision

"Where am I?" Liz asked.

"Central Hospital," said Dr. Brown.

"What happened?"

"You fell off a high cliff. You've been in a coma for three years."

"Why does my head feel so odd?"

"You'll get used to it."

"Gimme a mirror."

"Not now."

"Why?"

"You need therapy first."

"Oh God! Did something happen to my face?"

"The face is fine."

"Why did you say 'the face?' Gimme a mirror now, or I'll sue!"

"Calm yourself. Things have changed."

"What things?"

"The Supreme Court made a wise and benevolent decision. It saved your life."

"What decision?"

"The one allowing head transplants."
