Your trip started innocently enough: a relaxing cruise in the Caribbean where you enjoy scrumptious food, entertainment and the bright sun as you enjoy your time on desk. One peaceful afternoon, you have settled in your lounge chair with a cold drink by your side, a good book in hand and Paolo, the bartender, catering to your every need.
Then, out of nowhere, a UFO appears above the ship and informs all on board that they were not being kidnapped, but each and every person was being beamed to a deserted island for one year! Now, since these are nice extraterrestrials, they are gifting each person with a few things of their choice (in addition to providing sunscreen, a place to sleep and the ability to make a fire):
- One food item
- One book (two if you can really plead your case)
- One album (there is a magical stereo that has electricity and speaker, etc.)
- You can also pick one other thing from your home that will be beamed over
Which items do you choose?
(I opted for kindly aliens rather than an iceberg, that’s been done already – and icebergs are not all that common in the Caribbean.)
