Random Daily Prompt: Five a Day

RumYou’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

Daily Prompt: Five a Day.

Well, my first question is…WTF?  Why am I being held captive on an island?  Where is freaking Gilligan and the professor? More importantly WHERE IS THE RUM?

Okay, now that I’ve settled down, I need to give my captors my list of five foods that I would like.  I have no idea why they are giving me food, or options.  Apparently they want me to survive, but they also want me to squirm which means that either they are waiting for ransom money or I am part of a larger government conspiracy….or I landed in an episode of Lost.

Back to foods.  I have no idea if water counts as a food, or if they plan on supplying that but I am going to put it on the list anyway:

1) Water.  Lots of water

2) Live chickens (fully grown please) chickens lay eggs every day, which will supply me with protein.

3) Avocado: Full of fats and amino acids…plus they are tasty.

4) Starchy veggies: Potatoes, Corn, etc.  The starchier the veggie, the more full you feel

and finally:

5) Rum. Lots of rum. Gotta be Captain though.

So there ya go.  I have no idea how long I am going to survive on this diet, but if I die, at least the rum will have made me happy.


Random thought #7 back to it

Wow what an exhausting break.  4 trips to the emergency room.  I thought I was dying.  Of course now I feel fine and I have to go back to work tomorrow.  It is bittersweet for me since this is my final semester teaching.  I officially resigned effective in May.  This semeater is going to be a good one.  I need some good memories.  Then the next chapter in my life will begin.  After months of praying, I know this is the right move for me.  I wish I could streach today out forever.  Im enjoying the relaxing time with The Boy and my hubby.  I am often asked what my new years resolutions are.  This year I simply have two.  Drink more water….and stay out of the emergency room.  I ended the year at the ER but was out before midnight so I have a clean slate.  I am the worst water drinker in the world, but so far I have been downing a half gallon a day.  And you know what? I feel better.  I really do.  This year I want to become more healthy.  Unfortunately that means giving up my job,  which is the central core of my stress.  Lets hope that this, my last semester, is a great one with wonderful memories.
