Tell The Truth Thursday – Desert Island

by Sherry Riter in Tell The Truth Thursday

Tell The Truth Thursday

Welcome to “Tell The Truth Thursday” where the question that has been posted in my right side bar gets answered by me and you…and my husband Tom too! We all like his men’s meme, so it will be fun to contrast our answers. Did you prepare your post and are you ready to drop your URL into the Linky so that we all can follow? I hope so!

The question this week is:

    If you were stranded on a desert island, who would you want to be with you?

Since this is more a fantasy question for me, I will not choose any members of my family.

George ClooneyBeing on an island alone with someone…My first thought is for eye candy and I immediately thought of George Clooney…be still my beating heart. He is handsome, has a great physique and his graying temples are so debonair.

Keith UrbanBut then I thought about the lack of entertainment on an island. I would miss the computer, television and most of all the radio! If, however, I chose Keith Urban to be on the island with me, he could croon sweet music all the time.

The ProfessorThat sounded pretty good until I thought of the other lack of conveniences I would be missing. Things like the blender, shower, air conditioner, chairs and the list kept growing until I had decided that I needed someone handy instead like The Professor on Gilligan’s Island! He was literate, intelligent and quite handy at creating items that would make living on the island much more comfortable.

I had just about made my final decision when it hit me. I would be on an island…alone…for a long time…

I needed someone who would protect me from all harm…

Big enough to keep me warm, comfortable and would snuggle with me…

He would want to do things with me and not be self-centered or selfish…

Someone who would be willing to dance with me whether it be ballroom dancing or the two-step…

Being silly would not be beneath him…

Charming and sexy…

But most of all, he would love me completely…

That led me to only one name and my choice to be with me on the desert island…The Beast of the movie “The Beauty and The Beast”

If we ever got off the island, we could live in his mansion happily ever after and I would have my own library…No, being on the island would not make me lose my nerd-factor.

And Tom…What did Tom choose as his island mate?

“What better situation would it be than to be with my wife…alone…on an island…be serious! I find these truths to be self-evident. I married her. I planned on being with her a lot more time than I get…Remember, you are talking to a blogger’s husband. “

Obviously, he is just buttering me up so that when his aching back is healed and he feels 25 again…You get the picture!

love the photo of you and Beast! I always thought he was handsome too! I think Tom earned his spot on the island thanks to his very smart answer. 🙂

Oh my gosh, I loved your reasoning behind you would be with. But I think your husband has a plan. So give him a big hug he sure is a smoosher.
