The Man Whose Face Fell Off
There was a man whose face fell off. It fell right into the bowl of soup he’d been eating. He could hear the screams of the other restaurant patrons, for his ears remained in place. Unfortunately, his eyes had gone with his face this time. He hoped that wasn’t going to be a problem for the surgeons. The last time something like this had happened, they’d been able to reattach everything, but on that occasion his eyes had remained in their sockets even as the flesh around them pulled away.
