Captive’s choice

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?

Well my dear friends from the daily prompt consider this if you will…me in an unknown forest could be a major disaster.  I’m not designed to be a competitor on Survivor, as much as I love the show I’m never going to win it.  I’m never going to be the person who will catch fish for dinner, find water from a well, or rub two sticks together to start fire on my own and as for making a shelter…who the heck are we kidding here?  I would be dead within 24 hours. 

That counts out being stranded on an island as well.

As for being locked in a strange building…well there’s a good chance there will be power, at least there will be a roof over my head to protect me from the conditions outside and there will probably be a toilet, so at least that’s a start.  

I’m more conditioned to the indoors as opposed to the outdoors and roughing it.

    A “noncity”, “country-bumkin” who is not comfortable with the outdoors? O.o What trickery is this?

      I grew up in the city and didn’t go camping or do the outdoors bush thing when I was younger. I moved to the country when I was 22 and still don’t go camping out of choice. I like the country, but enjoy the quiet side of it, not the whole going camping, bush walking, fishing and hunting side of it.

    I kinda gotta go with The TabletGuy here. I told Br’er Fox that I was scared of Maui and didn’t want to be sent there. You may be trying the same game…

      Near where I lived until a month ago any island would be too scary…uninhabited, lots of mosquitoes, sand flies and march flies to bite you and way too many crocodiles to make anyone feel the slightest bit safe. If it was a nice island with a resort and airconditioning and no crocodiles I would consider it. Also I’m not a huge water fan, even though I’ve attempted snorkelling it terrified me no end!
