This is a hard one… I am the worst when it comes to answering “What If..” questions. I can never come up with a good answer for “If you can bring ONE item with you on a desert island…” or “What items would you take from your house if it were burning down..” . Knowing me.. I’d panic and grab a can opener and bottle of mouthwash and run out the door.
This is going to sound ridiculous. And obvious. And stupid. But please hear me out. The one thing I cannot live without is water. Yes. The liquid that makes up 90% or whatever of our bodies.
I feel like that girl from Mean Girls since I’m sure you’re all asking “Who invited this chick who is taking this prompt THAT literally?”
It is my favorite drink. I drink it from the moment I wake up until the second I go to bed. When Paco and I drove to Colorado and Florida he warned me not to drink a lot on the way because we couldn’t make 7,000 bathroom stops since I have the bladder of an ant. One of those tiny little black ants the size of a flea. By the time we got there I felt like a shriveled prune. I was sick for days afterwards because my body couldn’t function without my normal amount of liquid consumption. I drink glasses upon glasses of plain water every day. Soda? Juice? Alcohol? Sure, but I’d choose water first.
Okay, so now that I got that out of the way… I’m going to be a cheater and give you ONE other thing I can’t live without.
I would have a really hard time living without my car. I live in a tiny town with one real grocery store and two gas stations that both close at 9 p.m. I need to travel for everything – groceries, work, fun, etc. The closest Wal-mart or mall is 30 – 40 minutes away and we have no public transportation. So without my car.. I’d be screwed.
