I Got Tagged!

My bloggy friend, Ettarose from Sanity on Edge, tagged me the other day. My mission, should I choose it, is as follows:


“Your ship has sunk. You have, of course, been stranded on a deserted island. You have salvaged a copy of the King James Version of the Bible and a copy of the complete works of Shakespeare. Nothing else.

“The very next day you find one of those Arabian Lamps in the sand. Of course, you rub it and, of course, a rather grumpy Genie appears.

“‘Let’s get this straight - there is a recession going on. There are restrictions on the three wishes now. I don’t do water or air transport now so no boats, planes or magic carpets. As for electronics, forget it. There isn’t the infrastructure on this island.

“‘I can let you have one book and I mean one VOLUME, one essential item and one luxury item. Now hurry up and make your choices, I have to get to those five other islands you are going nominate.’”

1. Book:



2.Essential Item:

Extra long shoehorn




3. Luxury Item




I dare Queen Size Funny Bone, Reforming Geek and Life in the Short Lane to tell me what they would take with them!

Thanks for the tag. Ohs nos. This is gonna be tough!

Great choices. Maybe I'll visit your island and borrow your book and the whoopee cushion. I'll be wearing flip-flops so I won't need the shoe horn. ;-)

The whoopee cushion is a wise yet intriguing choice as luxury. You can use it for entertainment to keep you sane and yet use it for animal mating calls to trap meat for nourishment. you are a smart cookie.

definitely the shoehorn, you won't have anyone to help you and just because you are stranded doesn't mean you should look homely!

thanks for tagging me. I will let you know when I post something!

So I have been trying to decipher the real meaning of your choices:

Whoopee = Pillow
Shoe Horn = Coconut Whacker
4 Dummies Book = Fire starter

Very deceptively sharp of you to make these choices! :-)

Of course, the writer is totally fair.
