Being a thing

“But still frightened, because when might the whole problem — the whole thing — start happening to them again? The whole signs-of-mortality thing. The whole thing thing. Nobody likes it, thought Toby — being a body, a thing. Nobody wants to be limited in that way. We’d rather have wings. Even the word flesh has a mushy sound to it.”
