Anthology Pot Luck Theme: Turn Back Time

British born Chinese gay man Stanley Cheung wakes with somebody else's hangover.

Not only that, but he is laid out on someone’s couch in a grungy student digs where a strange woman is telling him he smells like a brewery. The thing is Stanley rarely drinks.

When the woman finally leaves, he finds out that not only has he woken as six-foot-three, ripped, blond-haired, straight Caucasian Don Bradley, but today is not Friday.

It’s Thursday.


He is reliving the same day but this time as somebody else.

Dedicated to the gay waiters who worked in the Chinese restaurant on Lisle Street behind Leicester Square. Back in the day, we’d turn up near closing time, when restaurants could still open until 2am, and have last-knockings dinner with the staff, usually being served dishes not on the menu. One of the chefs came from Malaysia and used to surprise us with his creations, while our waiter would donate his bottle of wine for us all to enjoy. Happy days.

I enjoyed this story, it was fun to read about a body swap and a time-slip.

Stanley and Don are interesting characters, Stanley might protest at being tied down and growing old (less attractive), but there is something to be said about emotional experiences we lose out on by letting ego get in our way.

Response from the author:

Thanks @W_L, it’s so encouraging to get a recommendation from a reader which essentially signposts to others that the story is worth a look over. So I thank you so much for that.

I’m so glad you enjoyed the premise.
