Ken watched as the pale morning dawned on his first day in a new job. It should’ve been an exciting occasion, but he only wanted to crawl back into bed Ken spent years convincing himself nothing was wrong with his body. Yes, he developed a bad case of gynecomastia, but he’d always been chubby And sure, he hardly needed to shave anymore, but that was probably just low vitamins.
