When I saw the milk cartoon radio, I knew I was in another world. Where I come from, milk cartoons are not radios, doughnuts are not recorders and sandwiches are not cameras. Yes, I was in a new world, one quite different from the world I am from.
I needed to figure out why I am here. Am I a spy? I thought about it for a long time but couldn't figure out who or why I was spying so I must not be a spy.
I watched the man use the radio by drinking the milk. His body turned into the radio.
Now I get it. When the person drinks the milk, his body becomes the radio. When they eat the doughnut, their body becomes the recorder. When they eat the sandwich, their body becomes the camera.
Yep, this is a strange, new world.
Thank you Yinglan for our photo prompt this week!

Wow, strange indeed! I’m trying to figure out the logistics of this: how does one’s body become a radio or a recorder or a camera? I feel like I need more to this story!
I haven’t thought that far yet. I imagine the eyes become camera, or the ears become the recorder and/or radio. Sorry, I only had a few words. I should have expanded more.
Oh no, don’t apologize! This was an interesting story, PJ, and I meant it as a compliment that I wanted to read more 🙂
Thank you so much Jade! I understand about needing more info on my story. I kind of left it open to question.
Strange world indeed PJ😀. Intriguing!
LOL! Yes, indeed! We never know what is coming next in our world. I remember thinking, we will never have telephones that you can see the person you are talking to! Here we are, we have them!
I agree PJ! As they say – truth is stranger than fiction!
Hahaha! That is so true!
Strange indeed, and has me wondering what I would choose to turn my body into! Great imagination PJ!
Yes, I know what you mean. Especially if you needed the camera and radio at the same time! LOL! Sorry, I couldn’t get a good imaginative story with this prompt.
LOL! Yes, it is! Thank you for reading!
I love it! So creative!
Thank you Lynn! When I saw the photo prompt,my mind went blank. That is all I could think of. LOL! Some of these prompts really throw me into a tizzy!
So much fun
Yes, it is. It’s fun to see what the mind is going to conjure up! Haha!
I imagine it would be fun PJ xoxoxo
Thank you Lynn! I really don’t have anything better to do. Haha! xoxoxox
Ah. You are what you eat! Good take Joy.
Hahaha! You are right! I hadn’t thought about that! Thank you for reading!
strange indeed! Do you mean carton instead of cartoon? 🙂 Or is that part of the strange world?! 🙂
Yes, I meant cartons, not cartoons! LOL! I wrote it too fast. LOL! Thanks for reading!
Wow, a strange world indeed. I’m not sure if I like to be a radio, though becoming a camera does sounds pretty cool. Interesting story.
Hahaha! I don’t think I would want to be a radio but like you, a camera sounds cool or even a recorder. You can record all the conversations you have with other people.
That is very true. We can record all the conversations and won’t need to have people repeating things anymore. 😀
LOL! So true!
Strange indeed Priceless. I am confused enough by THIS world. 😉
I know what you mean! I am too! All the “robots” that are out there now is crazy!
I don’t want to live in a day when I can’t tell a robot from a carton of milk!!!!
Hahahaha! You and me both!!
But do they ever change back?
Yes, it only lasts for a day.
I don’t want to be in a world where a man turns into something else drinking milk or eating a doughnut. Life is much simpler now.
I don’t want to be in that world either! You’re right, life is simpler now.
Whoa! That’s a very frightening reality to wake up in.
Yes, it sure would be! I’m glad I don’t live in that type of world. Thank you so much for reading!
I knew they put all kinds of stuff in the food… But electronics today covert us to receivers. Almost seems believable. Nice job
Thank you Mark. Yes, they put all kinds of things in food these days so electronics might be in the future. Hahaha!
Pounds like Alice in Wonderland.
I’m ashamed to say I have never read Alice in Wonderland but it is on my list.
