M3: Finale

Congrats. We're almost there. As yesterday, copy & paste your results into the top of your comment today. That's your starting point.

Step #2: swap job descriptions between characters, keeping everything else the same.

Step #3: looking at your revised list, swap gender only.

Step #4: now, swap the ages creating totally new characters.

What wacky and eclectic characters have you come up with? Thanks for partaking in this exercise. :D
