There are many reports coming in about the missing antiques. People have seen, antique tracks have heard creatures rooting around in their garbage grazing on their lawns loping through their back guards It has been difficult to tell which direction the antiques are moving because many of these reports contradict each other. And most are like. Leave people mixing up the antiques we other similar. Looking animals like ours for hyenas or bacteria, in turn, Maureen? Who has told been in turn longer than anyone I can remember well done. Maureen anyway,
Marine is back at school right now, so her friend actor is taking over for a bit. I hector great to have you on it, Hector is waving p saying hello, he doesn't have a MIKE, so his hello doesn't exist, for you nothing exists for you outside of my voice, saying, does anyway actor can you do me a favor and go check out. What's going on with the escaped antiques report are muddled and we need some one on the ground so to speak, In the ground, as they say very deep in the earth as the saying goes, to understand. What's really going on here actor he is nodding
now that nod exists for you to buy Hector. Until we see you again very soon and very well, I'm sure now with this. Imagine a man, This is a simple command, leading to millions of conceivable scenarios. Imagine this man, every possible physical form low Haitian, an condition that a man can be in Paris this man has been dead so long. He is dust perhaps who imagining dust- and perhaps you are not wrong? Imagine a man! Imagine him there
say buzzing light bulb above him. He is standing on. What could loosely be called the porch? What could loosely be called a tin shack, the light bulb buses and buses. He look. Some in irritation. You were wrong to imagine him as dust. You have him now. Do you know what he looks like Imagine a man No I'm sorry! No you, you were incorrect. And so the weekly find the man I'm thinking of contest will roll over to the next week. This is the
three hundredth consecutive week without a winner and the price. As for next week will be the three hundred and one custom made pencils. That say, I won a thing. I hope someone wind soon the giant That's a pencils here started. Get in the way of things. Oh guess, who's in the studio with me. Well, not surely with me, but projecting himself into our physical plain. That's right! My favorite, scientist and yours, but Firstly mine Carlos, I ceased Carlos. I know we just talked last night, but or the listeners. Why don't you tell us what's new out in the desert other world, your trap, that
desert other world you're spending some time in Well I've been doing so much interesting research. I've learned Composition of the rocks, which are not of our world. The composition of the components of the rocks, which are of our world. Strangely- and I am trying to figure out how many stars there are. I mean they're, always changing size and position, but I do think there are a lot of stars that sounds very scientific. Oh it is so scientific. The most scientific I don't think I've ever been more of scientific, and you know how much. I love science. Oh yes, I am also airy into science I miss you know touching. I miss this. Listen,
you can't see, but I'm trying to hold his hand and my hand, is just going through him because he is not actually here. I know that's why I'm working on a way for you to visit. I thank you. Like it here it's interesting and there is so much science plus the people are, We friendlier here people at nightfall it can be a little. No, I I know. I suppose it couldn't hurt take a little visit, but I knew to be back in my radio desk soon it can be difficult to ask station management for time off, work. Great, so I'll. Let you know when I figure out exactly how to get you here. I can a way to see you in person again me. Neither can not wait. Cannot
oh ok up meet me. Neither it's gonna be good as well. Thank you so much for this highly relevant report that had important information for every one in town, thanks Carlos by Cecil,. Bad news listeners it see. Is that the antiques have gathered around city Hall and are behaving in threatening ways toward any one trying to leave or enter We are getting reports that, while City Council has already safely evacuated using a rocket sled that they keep for this very purpose. Mayor Dana Cardinal is still trapped inside Sheriffs secret police are responding quickly.
Issuing press releases to explain why it's definitely not their job to deal with this situation, because, frankly, it seems pretty dangerous and scary. They but the day have activated all available officers to work hard on deflecting responsibility away. From them, as the sheriffs secret police slogan goes not our job, not our problem No, I'm being told that the antiques have found a way into city hall. The pact is entering the building city, I've been infiltrated by hungry antiques, with no one left to protect our mayor. Who will protect Dana someone.
Someone must We'll know one step forward. No one, Is anyone even listening to this? What what kind of town or we, what kind of town are we also here's the weather.
We watch rangy blaze, where we really way about saying just where we really want to be really and there will be well listeners
Well, well, listeners. It seems It seems that all is well. We don't know how, but beloved mayor is safe once again, a person of unknown identity appeared on the scene. Into the city hall and single handedly, defending the mayor's office against the pack of antiques. This was. Foolish of that person. That person could have been killed or gravely wounded. They were. We don't know who the person is or where they went, and their fate is, is non existent. As Anything else I do not or cannot voice
A cardinal gave a message of thanks saying whoever you are. Thank you. I do not speak for the town before the city government. I speak for myself, as a person as a human. All of blood and worry. Thank you. For keeping me safe. She said. Pamela Winchell, director of him region, press conferences held an emergency press conference in which she had. Into the mayor's statement by saying clouds or the belt. Of the sky. Cinch them tighter make the cloud Let's go tighter make
Sky, come closer before we're hurling herself into the sky, Till she was just a in the upward distance. So that seems to be another crisis, averted I'll, be in a sudden and if I may be frank, as a journalist net. Protectively unsatisfactory way Perhaps we will never know that unknown Savior is or HU, the unknown liberator of the antiques, was Perhaps we will never know anything. We have certainly never known anything at all. But wait turn Hector is returning pay her,
did you see who the unknown benefactor was? Do you have any information Hector is ACT. He is holding up his arm there. Is a tear in the skin a deep and jagged awful He has been bitten actor it was you wasn't it. I sent you to run port and instead you involved yourself- and I thank you. For doing so ordinary. That would be a violation of journalists, standards which clearly say we should never help when we could nearly watch but Dana Dana
a friend of mine, and so I thank you for ignoring our sacred rules, just this once the honest I wouldn't have thought actor was the type to do something like that were even visit. The strong enough to fight off an entire pack of antiques, but people can Surprise you, that is The things that people can do, but at bite you know what happens to someone who is bit by an antique actor is unable to speak has been unable to speak since he arrived listeners. Of course
Anyone beaten by an anti. Becomes an antique themselves turn after. If only there was something I can do for you He is transforming his body is along gating and the lower reg. His shoulders turned to home she's his, Two wings, his the two bladed multi legs. He is becoming an antique before my eyes, and I can do nothing for him for Brave young person who saved my dear friend Dana.
He's out of sight now I can hear only a click The a improvement must have fully transformed into an antique. Acta is there. Any trace of your old self laughed. Where are you already beating me catapult understood. You tore hee, hee, hee, hee, kid committees, Kenny He rattling in the ceiling. And there is a fear, guess so
students dripping onto my desk? I dare not look for its source hum coming up next Hopefully, the sound of my successful escape from this room, who just touch me actor actor.
