A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker:

I WILL SURVIVE

I admit it. I love reality shows, well some of them. In fact I have been watching some of them since they made their debut on TV. I am such a big fan of some of them, that if I am going out for some reason, I make it a point to get home by the time, “my show” is on.

My favorite all time reality show is “Survivor.” In the show, contestants are taken to an obscure desolate place with just the clothes on their backs and they have to learn how to survive. They compete for rewards and immunity and see who can outwit, outplay and outlast each other.

They literally have to provide their own food, eating very sparsely. The food is limited and consists of things such as coconuts, perhaps a sand crab, or maybe someone will get lucky and catch a fish.
