One Item

If you were going on the show "Survivor" and could only bring one luxury item, what would it be? I think about this more often than I should admit, considering I would almost certainly be the first one voted off the show.

The problem with choosing is that I go back and forth between something noble, like scriptures, and something practical, like chapstick (which I'm addicted to) or Vaseline (which I use as a chapstick/lotion/cure for cuts and burns).

I looked up the rules. The show provides: contact solution, lady products (was that vague enough for the guys?), insect repellent, sunscreen and necessary medications. They do not provide toothpaste, tooth brushes, razors, or any other grooming supplies. Nasty.

So, what'll it be? If you could bring one noble item (picture of a loved one, religious item, etc) and one luxury item, what would the luxury item be? What's the thing you can't live without?

Sunglasses. Or toothpaste.

I can't choose without over analyzing this situation. Will there be toilet paper available? If not, that's my choice. Definitely.

If tp is provided, I would choose my peppermint castile soap. I LOVE that stuff! And according to the bottle, it can be used as a natural shampoo, body wash, or for an invigorating facial.

p.s.- Can i borrow your chapstick when we get there?

Because I can't go more than 2 days without shaving, I think I would have to bring my razor. But then the problem of no shaving cream arises. That could be painful. I wonder if mud would work as a substitute?

The razor could also be used as a weapon incase there are any rabid hyenas or if Vernice isn't on my team...

I wouldn't even get on the show, I'm not a back-stabber kind of person, and just not dramatic enough.

I'd take a luxury car. People would vote themselves off to enjoy my leather seats and air-conditioning.

Don't you think toothpaste and a toothbrush should count as one item? I don't think I could survive without those - yuck! But then again, I'm also a fellow chapstick/lipbalm addict, so that's a hard one!

I would take you because I can't live without you

Christi said...

I have to agree with a toothbrush and toothpaste being one item. Yuck!
I would take something that everyone would be envious of, so I could work a trade and gain immunity.

Toothbrush - use it as a hairbrush too? Gross! OR - Vaseline is very versatile (use it as an eye cream too). OR - I would want a journal/notebook to write about the crazy experiences!

Heather said...

i say "Amen" to chapstick. You know how painful it is when your lips are dry and chapped. It's all you can think about......


I can't believe no one has said deoderant..i mean..ewww..stinkyness

Natalie said...

I think Joel has it right. Maybe I'd want an Airstream trailer or a full-on RV bus. or maybe a yacht.

Its a show that seems to promote bad behavior.

(I may go to the Philippines this Summer for a week or more.. hmm.. what would I bring? a small cotton towel, to wipe off all the sweat.. I know that from previous experience there.)

I would take soap. I would go a little crazy without it.

Where to go from HERE said...

Okay that is easy. I would want a copy of a picture book of "TOP GUN", yes that is right the Tom Cruz movie as my luxury item. As for my necessity item I would want a crate of caviar. How can anybody possibly live without that. I mean you can trade it for anything you want. Unless you have nobody to trade it with and then you can use it to fish, brush your teeth (not really sure how, but I am sure there is a way), or use as a bed.

I think I'd have to take a toothbrush and toothpaste. I always wondered about their oral hygiene while there!

Stopping by from Friday Follow and following you now. :)

I would choose a toothbrush/toothpaste too I think. Other than that, I would say vaseline is a good one!

Holly said...

Since I am a Survivor fan, I loved this post...I never thought to look up what they are allowed to bring...I especially wondered about the sunscreen and lady products.

I would bring sunglasses...or mascara

Happy Friday Follow.

I would have to bring deodorant as my luxury item!!!

Katherine said...

Having lived in a tropical place, I can tell you that when you're sweating all day, deodorant does very little. As long as the sweat doesn't dry, you shouldn't smell. Might as well use your freebie for something that will actually do some good, like a 5-pound block of chocolate. Actually, I'd probably bring a book on plants that can be used for medicinal/toothbrushing/chap stick/shaving purposes.
