A woman with four ears has a chance to make extra money as the mascot of a tattoo parlor. She must make a choice between money and pride, while combating a neighbor who is certain she's a sign of the second coming. From Teresa Milbrodt s Bearded Women: Stories, this tale is one in a phenomenal collection (Asimov s Science Fiction) of short fiction about the so-called freaks trying negotiate a world that is quicker to stare than sympathize.
