When I was around 8 years old, I'd be watching Gilligan's Island and think how cool it would be to be stranded on a deserted island. Nothing to do all day but hang out under a palm tree and swim whenever I wanted. I'd live on coconuts and wouldn't have to go to school. And my parents wouldn't be there so I couldn't get bossed around. I wondered if I'd really be able to do it, but I figured if the seven castaways could make a go of it, how hard could it be..
