What Five Things Would You Not Want? (This Prompt Is Stupid)

th[3]Daily Prompt: Five Items

A classic question, revisited: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?

I suppose such questions are meant to delve into your psyche to reveal either how deep or shallow you are. It is an opportunity to find out what is truly important in your life and what you think it takes to sustain it.

Well I ain’t gonna play.

Who made Cheri Lucas Rowlands and Sue Perry queen so that they can decide it’s five items? Maybe it’s really twenty and they’re keeping the remaining fifteen for themselves. Who are they to limit my options and choices?

Why not ask a unclassic question like, if you were on a deserted island what five things would you not want to have?

I wouldn’t want Cheri Lucas Rowlands or Sue Perry. They’re selfish and limit my choices. They are voted off the island. It’s still pretty crowded so I’m going to get rid of three more people. Considering there are over 7 billion people on earth it shouldn’t be too hard to find three people to whom I have no emotional attachment.

Hmm, let’s see, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Cy Robertson. I’m sorry Cy. I really like you, but my level of contempt is so great that I had to vote you off my island so you could drive the other four crazy.
