I missed a Daily Prompt I wanted to do.
Okay, so I probably missed a few. But, I missed one in the last couple days. I don’t know how. I’m definitely slipping.
Anyway, the prompt was, “What 5 things are must haves with you on a deserted island?”
1. My trumpet.
Yeah, I haven’t played in a while, but I still remember how. I was pretty immersed in it. Had a band and played in a few others and everything. I miss those days. Anyway, point is, if I can’t listen to music, I damn well want to be able to create it. So, I’d take my trumpet.
2. A pet.
I’d need some form of companion. I think it would help my sanity massively to have a pet dog there with me. I don’t have one at the moment. I live in an apartment. But in the future, when I have my own place, I’ll have a dog for sure. I grew up with them. Love them. Man’s best friend. I’m assuming I can gather enough food for the both of us. He may even help with the hunting, if I take the right breed.
3. A hatchet.
You know that shit is gonna come in handy. Firewood needs chopping, branches for shelter need chopping, etc. Anyone read that novel, ‘Hatchet‘? … exactly.
4. Fishing reel.
Thinking practical now. Fruits and such are great, but meat is handy and I’d assume fishing would be easier than hunting. I at least have practice with that one.
5. Flint and steel.
I’ll want a campfire. Warmth, cooking, all that. And try starting a fire without a flint and steel. Tough work.
So that’s my list! What would you want to take on a deserted island with you?
