Daily Prompt -Stranded

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?


Dear S,

Yesterday, when you said you needed a ‘BREAK’, I assumed you were hinting at retail therapy.

I had no clue you were hinting at ‘breaking’ away from civilization, away from work, home, kids and friends.

The WordPress ‘ Stranded alone in a deserted island 3Days/ 4Nights’ brochure arrived in mail today. It says I should give you  5 items that you’ll take with you on your trip.

Scenes from the movie ‘Cast Away’ flash in front of my eyes.  But I guess you are better equipped to survive on the island. After all, Discovery’s ‘Ultimate Survivor’, ‘Dual Survival’ are the most watched shows in your house.

You must have picked up  lots of tips to build a shelter, start fire and hunt for food.

Since you are on a vacation( though a weird one) you should be happy. You should be enjoying yourself.

Food helps you relax and brings a big smile on your face always.

Therefore,I’ll give you

– a solar pressure cooker

– salt, pepper shakers

– cooking oil

to experiment with all the ingredients available in the wild

– pen and book to note your new recipes

Hope you enjoy your ‘ Alone Time’ on the island.

Be safe.

Lots of love and best wishes,
