SF Drabble #157 “Had A Little Work Done”

The stylish thing with the kids now apparently? Plastic surgery to make themselves look like the Weedee. At first it was just the eyes. They’ve been doing it in Japan for years: giving girls those big manga eyes… only now the eyes are grown oversized from gene-resequenced cloned tissue. One guy who had it done told me it was a vast improvement, gave him wicked peripheral vision.

It’s the tendrils that bother me. You just aren’t meant to have ribbons of meat hanging off your cheeks, your chin. And they don’t even look real; Weedee tentrils move around, they’re animated.
