DP Daily Prompt: Someone Else’s Island

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

We’ve all been asked what five objects we’d take with us to a desert island. Now it’s your best friend’s ( or close relative’s) turn to be stranded.What five objects would you send him/her off with?

I am thinking of so many things to send with my best friend, but I’m allowed only five items. I need to think of the items she cannot do without.

I thought of a rice cooker, it wont be feasible, how will she plug it on in a desert, I know there will be no electricity, I wonder if there are battery operated rice cookers or better yet will the sand get warm enough to cook the rice? My friend cannot live without rice.

Rice cooker is out, I cannot send her with rice either,what’s the alternative she needs to eat something to live. I think a box of rice cereal is awesome, it’s as close to plain rice as one can get. Milk is not a problem I’ll give her a package of milk powder for her cereal. There is plenty of water in an island, she can mix the milk powder with water and voila she’s got milk for her cereal.

Let me see she’d need a bowl for her cereal, she can use it for any other food such as berries if she is lucky enough to find some.

It will be useless to give her money where will she spend it on a desert island?

She’ll need a set of clothes and a towel. I’ve already got the five items that I’ll send with her, let’s see they are:

1. one box of cereal

2. milk powder–one package

3.bowl—one

4.set of clothes — one

5. towel– one

I am checking the list, I am horrified to see the things I’m sending with my friend to a desert island.But they are very important, food and clothing everyone needs it.

Wait a minute if she knowingly goes to a desert island as a precautionary measure wouldn’t she herself take things she needs, when we go somewhere we take things with us we might need if we stay longer and run out of medicine, extra money for food and even more clothes?

    • Yes I did, towards the end I said wait a minute,
      don’t we all take precautionary measures when we
      travel? How will the friends know they’d be stranded.
      Thank you Sonya.I know it’s not easy to provide a prompt daily.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this interesting post. I don’t have any idea what 5 items I would take with me, or send with someone else, to an island. I imagine one item will be a book.

    All good wishes,

    robert
