If I were left alone on a desert island

If I were left alone on a desert island

Like Robinson Crusoe, I love the sea, but I rarely see it. We live in a city far from the places where ships sail to distant lands, where gulls scream and smell of fish and seaweed. But I often imagine that, like Robinson Crusoe, I was on an uninhabited island…

When I came to, the sea was no longer stormy. The evening was approaching, and one had to think about food and lodging. I dialed brushwood, laid my jacket and lay down. It was tough and uncomfortable. I could not sleep for a long time-hunger tormented me. Somewhere in the distance, a bird screamed. I was scared.

In the morning I began to reflect on what to do now. First, we must take care of food. This, I thought, would be easy: the sea is full of fish, in the forest there are nuts, berries, bird nests, where you

can find eggs. After all, they began to eat Robinson, when the supplies brought from the ship were over. Secondly, we must build a fire, find some vessel to boil an ear… But I’m on an uninhabited island! Where does the vessel come from? Even tins can not find… I went to explore the area. In the thickets of wild hazel nasobiral nuts. I came across bushes with berries similar to strawberries. What to do next? Of course, the best counselor here can only be Robinson Crusoe. He built himself a dwelling, he built himself furniture. I know that Robinson made pottery from clay. He sewed his own clothes, even made an umbrella. Following the example of Robinson, I would have to tame wild goats, grow cereals. But I do not know how. I do not have the necessary life experience, knowledge, skill. This immediately makes me sober and returns to reality – in my comfortable city apartment. It’s terrible to think that I could be alone, without parents and friends, even in this modern city! In order not to get lost in life, like Robinson, I still have a lot to learn. After all, on an uninhabited island, I would have to become a builder, a cook, a tailor, a fisherman, and even a doctor! even in this modern city!

No, if I were left alone on a desert island, I would surely be killed!
