My Best Friend’s Island List

As a good husband, one well-trained and experienced with more than 27 years of marriage to my best friend, I would not dare develop such a list of my own selections without consulting her.
Items I may deem essential would be summarily rejected, and others I would not even consider bringing, she would demand.

I would ask her now, but she’s taking a well-earned nap after working all day with pre-kindergarten special needs children at school.


We’ve all been asked what five objects we’d take with us to a desert island. Now it’s your best friend’s (or close relative’s) turn to be stranded: what five objects would you send him/her off with?
