Thanks to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers and for the mysterious photo prompt
What is that Leo ?
A meat safe maybe, Dot ..
Or a piece of space junk ?
‘Have a heart’
Leo I just heard a tiny voice from the meat safe thing’
Really ? Saying what ?
Have a heart
Its just said Dorothy, how spooky.
I can’t think, I’m scared, we are lost , he will guide us
Follow the yellow brick road
Come on Toto
There’s a group of them in there,
They’re trying to tell us something, we’ve lost our ‘normal’, we need guidance Leo.
Will our friends believe us ?

Normalcy is hard to retain when a civilization pops up in a discarded refrigerator. Fun, mind-warping story.

They seem to have strayed from the yellow brick road…

That tornado has wrecked the town, those hiding in the fridge are in for a shock when they find themselves in a new world with the Wizard of OZ.

Thanks James- yes, what a world with both the Pandemic and the Wizard of Oz.

You draw an interesting parallel between the Covid lockdown and The Wizard of Oz. That’s a clever use of the prompt.
