11/7 – 6 reasons why you would be doomed if you were stranded on a deserted island all by yourself

Oh me, oh my. What would I do if I were stranded on a deserted island, all alone?

1 ~ I know I’d miss my family, and that in itself would be the roughest aspect for myself. ‘Nuff said there.

2 ~ I’d likely lose my ever loving mind not being able to talk to my bestie Winter, or update the blog. It’s likely I’d have the shakes from  not checking Twitter, and I used to hate Twitter. lol No internet. Oh, I’m shivering already. Perhaps I could start a blog in the sand? No one to talk to, with some hope I’d be stranded on an island where an old Fed Ex plane went down and I could have my very own “Wilson” (Tom Hanks movie, what’s the name of it?) I certainly wouldn’t have it in me to not open the packages. Yah, I know. Shame on me.

3 ~ I’m too fat to starve to death, so I’d conjure up a weapon to hunt with so I could eat. This fat girl isn’t going to go hungry. Nope, no way. Besides, I could probably find some lobster, or clams right? Got Butter?

4 ~ No lights. I hate sitting alone in the dark. Kind of odd, because if I’m on the front porch or in the yard, I love listening to the coyotes yip. But to be, say in the woods, or in this case on a desserted island I would HAVE to find a way to have light, so a fire would be a start. Flint rocks usually aren’t too hard to come by, I could do a fire. As long as I did it during the day, otherwise I think I’d shiver, freaked out all night.

5 ~ Getting off the island may serve a challenge, I can swim, but um island makes me thinks sharks. Screw that. I have my weapon to hunt with, when I’m rescued my husband will be proud.

6 ~ As for a shelter, I think I may seriously screwed there. I sucked as a child building a fort, a tree house, or anything else closely related. But I do think I am resourceful, so maybe some palm leaves. I’m sure I’d rearrange the whole mess a dozen times before it was even remotely effective.

I know I’m only supposed to list 6, but uh, well my first thought on this topic was …

OH CRAP NO DIET COKE, OR COFFE! Please let me find coffee beans to chew on!

  1. Ok #1 I would miss Redneck. We talk daily, whine to one another etc.
    #2 For the first day maybe 2 I would be fine. I would bask in the sun and swim.
    #3 Starve? Pft I’d kill a shark and what a nice meal he would make? I’d make use of all that salt water and sautee his butt and have Banana’s for dessert, and coconut milk to drink.
    #4 Then for shelter I’d pick those banana leaves and weave me a roof. That’s right I’m a resourceful person. You gotta be.
    #5 Then the stylish chick I am Would find some fig leaves ya know and make a beautiful dress.
    #6 I seriously think I may like being stranded please check back with me in a month or 2.

  2. Funny how many of us participating on this week’s STS don’t know how to swim. A blog in the sand would be creatively lovely.
