Those scissors need to be a lot sharper…

This one is much too roomy, he thought as he slipped the suit jacket off. He looked like he was drowning and it did nothing for his shoulders. He pulled another one off the rack and began to put it on, but he could barely get it over one of his arms. When had these all gotten distorted? He hung them both back on their padded hangers and put them into the air-conditioned closet.

It wasn’t his fault – he strictly monitored his weight precisely so he wouldn’t have to get new suits made every few years. It took months to select and cultivate a new suit speciman, and he just didn’t have the time since his last promotion at LivingSocial. I guess human skins just don’t hold up the way they used to, he thought sadly as he brushed an errant piece of blonde hair off the too-small suit. Just another way civilization was going down the tubes.
