It's a scenario that has been asked for as long as I can remember, but the answer to that one question differs for everyone. So I pose it to you. Which 3 items from your home would you want to have with you if you were stranded on a desert island? It could be absolutely anything, your television, your hair straighteners, even your make up bag. Say you hopped on a plane tomorrow and you got washed up on some isolated island without much hope of being rescued. Which 3 items could you not live without?
I have thought about this scenario long and hard, and I have actually found it a pretty tricky question to answer. Being on a desert island it kind of makes certain things obsolete. It may come as a surprise to you but I won't be adding my hair straighteners or my make up bag to this list! Like I say... I have given this a lot of thought, and my top 3 items are as follows:
Number 1: My memory foam mattress. Now I know this is not something that you usually take on a plane, and the chances of being washed up on a desert island with it is not a likely occurrence. But if there was a choice in the matter, then my memory foam mattress would rank pretty high. I love nothing more than a relaxing nights sleep, and after camping recently on nothing but the tent liner for comfort beneath me... I know that if I was to be bracing the elements, I would certainly want somewhere comfortable to sleep!
Number 2: My Nutribullet Blender - Let's just in vision for one moment that this island is similar to the one featured in Lost, that it has electricity and the potential for me to make use of my most used kitchen appliance. Just imagine all of the exotic fruits that I could whiz up, all of the taste tantalizing smoothies, Banana, Mango, Coconut and even Pineapple! I know, it's quite a random item to long to have on a desert island, but seriously this would make life so much easier and really spice up the meal plan for those stranded with you! Fruit alone can get a little tiresome but smoothies are just my favourite thing ever!
Number 3: Last but not least... My final item that I would want to be stranded with are my Nike running shoes. As some of you know, I am really into my fitness right now, and I have the most beautiful pair of Nike Airmax shoes. Just because I was stranded on a desert island, it wouldn't stop me running. In fact it may even spur me on, imagine those serene beaches and the waves lapping up against the shore on that mid evening jog just as the sun is setting over head. This would certainly keep me running!
They may be the most random items to wish to have if I was stranded on a desert island, but I think they are pretty creative. Did it get you thinking about your top 3 items?
You can't ever really prepare to be stranded, so I guess it all comes down to your personal circumstances. Of course there are far worse circumstances than being washed a shore a stunning beach right!? A burglary, a fire, but I guess that's exactly why we have home insurance right!?
