Sunday Stealing: The Shipwreck Questions
You are shipwrecked with friends (your group can include real life or virtual life or both) think about it and pick some friends to truly enjoy your cruise + and tell us why you assembled the group by just telling us . . .
(I chose my virtual life in Lord of the Rings Online, so . . . )
Who would throw the wildest parties, and why did you pick them? Gimli, because dwarves know how to drink with great gusto.
Who would always fall asleep on the couch, and why did you pick them? Pippin, because he is lazy and spends too much time smoking the long bottom leaf.
Who would enter to be in a talent show, and why did you pick them? Eowyn, because she has an inferiority complex, and would like to show up everyone, especially the guys.
Who would try to get out of doing their chores and why did you pick them? Merry, because, like Pippin, he has never done a day's work in life.
Who would accidentally set the kitchen on fire whilst cooking and why did you stupidly pick them? Smaug, the dragon in the Lonely Mountain, because, well, he has hot breath.
Who would try to domesticate an island pet and why did you pick them? Samwise Gamgee, because he loves the land and the animals. He was very fond of Bill the pony and was sad when he couldn't take him through the mines of Moria.
Who would make the other carry their bags on a shopping spree and why did you pick them? Merry would make Pippin carry his bags, because Merry always leads Pippin around, and Pippin follows. They've done that since they were wee lads. They may also be in line for the drinking question.
Who would throw the first person off the boat and why did you pick them? Aragorn would throw anyone who was bad off the boat, because he is the Elessar (or king) and has great knowledge.
Who would be the best caregiver when someone got sick and why did you pick them? Gandalf, because he is a wizard and a healer.
Who would try to force the another to play sports with them and why did you pick them? Boromir would teach the hobbits to play at swords, in order to show them how to defend themselves. He is a master swordsman from Gondor.
Who would have the best holiday ideas for your space on the island and why did you pick them? Arwen, the elf who wants to marry Aragorn. She would throw a lavish party in order to court her man.
Who would need to clean out someone else's stuff to make room for their own and why did you pick them? Gollem would need to clear away everything he could find, because he is searching for The One Ring.
Who worries about how they will look when they’re older and why did you pick them? Lord Elrond does not worry about how he will look, but he does worry about how his daughter, Arwen, will look, because she has chosen a mortal life and will one day die, while he and the other elves live on in the undying lands.
Flashes everyone when they walk by after taking a shower alone and why did you pick them? Legolas Greenleaf, prince of the Woodland Realm, would gladly flash everyone after a shower, and I would be glad to look.
Who wakes you to asks weird questions in the middle of the night and why did you pick them? I would be the one asking the weird questions in the middle of the night. I already do that. Drives my husband nuts because my brain never goes out of gear.
Who will constantly ask you “what are you thinking about?” and why did you pick them? Gandalf would be asking me that constantly, because he is a curious sort of fellow who likes to know everything.
Which of your friends on this island might being too touchy-feely while you interact, why did you pick them? If I were lucky, Aragorn or Legalos might get a little touchy-feely. They are both beautiful.
