Daily Prompt: Captive’s Choice
by michelle w. on January 19, 2014

The Prompt:
You’ve been kidnapped and given a choice: would you rather be stranded on an island, dropped into an unknown forest, or locked in a strange building?

Having watched a few episodes of Les Stroud’s television show Survivorman, I am vicariously confident that I could survive being dropped (gently) into an unknown forest. I’m not sure if Mr. Stroud has produced the kidnapped-dropped-in-weird-place episode, but if he has, then I will study it with multiple viewings. Not being a survival expert, I would have to channel my Stroudian wisdom that I have vicariously absorbed from his show and put it into action. And since I wouldn’t have fifty pounds of video gear to lug around, I might have a slim chance of surviving.
