Sam’s Appointment

A January fog rolled over the city as Sam headed to the clinic for tests that he hoped would allow him the first taste of food. The ominous buzz of the morning commute did not dampend his spirits though, it was a new year of new possibilities.Sam arrived for his appointment half an hour early as requested to fill out the mountains of paper work it took to be a essentially a lab rat. Even with arriving early he had to wait to be seen by the team of specialists, apparently his condition wasn’t rare enough to warrant immediate attention.After the nurse checked his vitals, Sam was called to a stark white room with a large mirror where he was asked to try various foods.

“Please try this pepper,” the attendent asked handing Sam a ghost chili.
