This is one of the most creative pieces I've read. The analogies are hilarious.
Sounds like either one of them should pick up a copy of Franz Kafka's "Metamorphosis" It might help explain a few things. This was hilarious and the analogies so uniquely appropriate that it was a bit frightening as well. Which means you had a good title, too.
I love this! I couldn't wait for each new metamorphosis and recognized them all (been there, done that). Your ending could not have been better.

Way over the top - just as my Dad would respond to the volatile monster that moved into my room while I was a teenager. Good fun stuff.
Great wit and humor throughout. Well done!

Awesome, so awesome. I could feel her panic, could almost smell Gerald's room and just about fell off my seat with the ending. Perfect!!
This was so entertaining. Having raised two sons through those dreaded teen years, I could definitely relate to this story. Great writing!
