Your “Secret Subject” is:
Tell us about a skill that you have that would be the most help if you were lost out in the woods overnight.

THAT is what I thought of when I received this prompt. LOL
If you haven't seen the movie here is a synopsis for you: A billionaire and two other men are stranded, unequipped, by a plane crash in a dangerous wilderness. How many will survive to be rescued? (courtesy of IMDB)
There's a bear involved as well.....
So, with that in mind I started thinking about this prompt....
What skills do I have???
can hike I used to hike... I grew up in the mountains. Does that count??
I can swim. Would that help me escape the bear???
I was in the Girl Scouts for only a month so no help there.
OH! I know!! Maybe I could talk the bear to death?? THAT'S a skill I have! Deadly boredom and the ability to keep talking long after I should have shut up! LOL
I'm not really the outdoorsy type. I can't go out in the woods and just BE. I have to be doing something, preferably reading a book or swimming, other than that I would rather be inside.... reading... or sewing.....
Yep, that's it. I'm doomed. I'll be the one they find days later, lying on the ground in a fetal position.
Wait a second! I have 5 children! I must have SOME survival skills! A bear is NOTHING next to having raised 3 teens at once! Oh, yeah! That bear won't know what hit him!
I've gone a long time with people (read the teens) giving me the cold shoulder so silence doesn't bother me. Actually, a little silence would be a good thing most days.
I've gone long periods waiting for the kids to leave me alone long enough to eat a candy bar that I don't want to share... I could last a while without food. Just don't expect me to try to snare a little bunny. That's just not happening.
I've spent hours walking all over theme parks, museums and such with 5 kids in tow... I have endurance!
You know, this whole stranded in the woods thing doesn't sound so bad now that I think about it!! I would be ALL ALONE!!! Do you know how often that happens?? Never, that's how often! NEVER!!! The last time I was without any of my kids was when I was giving birth to the youngest!
Yeah, the more I think about it the more appealing getting stranded sounds....
I think I need a plane ticket to Alaska. One way.
