That is a very simple question, I’ll bet a simple, obvious answer has popped into your head.
My answer was a bottle of water, how about yours?
What was your answer?
Does he need…
- A camel?
- A map?
- A tent?
- An oasis?
- A fire?
- Some food?
- An oil rig?
- A phone?
- Some sun-cream?
- A dune buggy?
My answer was the right answer
It is clear to me that my first answer was without doubt the right answer:
A man in a desert needs a bottle of water.
It is so obviously right that it makes all the other possible answers obviously wrong. I am in complete agreement with myself.
But what do I know?
The closest I have ever been to a desert was the beach at Great Yarmouth. And it was raining.
So even though technically I have never actually met a man in a desert. I have made my mind up and discounted all the other options.
Next time I’m asked an obvious question:
Before I jump to conclusions, I will try to remember to ask first. My first answer might just be wrong.
How about yours?
