Discuss Among Yourselves...Deserted Island

If you were stranded on a deserted island, and in your possession, you could only have two things (excluding a cell phone or flare gun), what two things would you want? And we're talking material possessions, so husbands, kids and pets don't count....

Leave me a comment - I'm curious what you think.

Could I have a knife and a blanket? That way you'd have something to put over your head for some sort of protection and the knife could be used to hunt food and all that stuff.

Good question.

Jo said...

this is tough cause I too would want a blanket for sure but I would also want to bring my toothbrush and a large knife to help me "hunt". I would starve without food so I guess I would bring the knife and go without my toothbrush. EWWW!!

Tina said...

How about a bottle of sunscreen and a machete? That way I won't get burnt but I could cut down trees to make a shelter. But then again, how funny would I look? I perfectly tanned machete yielding islander? Tee Hee Hee

Fingernail clippers (I'm a touch OCD about that) and probably a knife as well. (A big knife though--I don't do carving) :)
Good question! I hope my deserted island is that beautiful!

You asked about want-not need-so I'd want my Ipod and a very large supply of iced tea. Hopefully I could figure out a way for the Ipod to work on solar energy because you didn't say anything about getting rescued in four hours.
thanks for visiting windycorner-come back soon!

I think I would want a swiss army knife - that way I'd have some tools (do you think there's one with an option for a toothbrush?...I have toothie issues) and probably something like a blanket - that way it could help provide shelter as well as a clothing option when I have to wash my clothes. Oh goodness, I wonder what you'd use on a deserted island for deodorant?

Thanks for playing along. :)

A razor and a pan. You wouldn't want to see this without a razor, believe me!

Heather said...

What about a tent and a battery operated laptop....

Scrappy Girl said...

Hmmmmm...a good book...and my dog for company!

The Momster said...

Hmm... I like the idea of a tent. :) A good book would be nice - but you can't bring your dog along scrappy girl!
I laughed about the razor - been there :)

Good responses - definate food for thought in case I ever 'know' I'm going to be shipwrecked :)

Sunscreen and a motor boat :o)

A knife and a pot. I figure I'll eventually tan, I'm there by myself so who cares what I look and smell like? And I can boil water, stab a fish or two and cook. Cause I totally know how to make fire with a stick...I watched Tom Hanks do it!

Teri said...

How about a journal/pen set (counts as 1, right?) and a firestarter thing. I need fire to keep warm and cook all the things I tackle with my bare hands, and I need a journal to write all the stories/delusions I will have until I am rescued.

I was thinking maybe Sawyer and Jack from LOST? Afterall, they are MY material possessions? ha ha
