A Very Short Story about Some Friends

Once upon a time there was Integrity.

Integrity was solid. Integrity was consistent. Integrity was happy.

Then one day Integrity met Opportunity and Opportunity's odd pal, Shady.

All three became fast friends and spent a lot of time together.

In fact, Integrity spent so much time with Shady and Opportunity that they all decided to become housemates.

But after living together for a while, the darnedest thing began to happen — they started to look, sound, and act alike.

Integrity began sounding like Shady and Opportunity. Shady started dressing like Integrity. And Opportunity acted like Shady, but spoke like Integrity.

Things went on like this for so long that eventually no one, not even the three friends, could tell where one ended and the other began.

The End
