To give you an idea of how well my brain is working today, this is what I came up with. So you’re stranded on a desert island, and you’re only allowed to bring a few items with you. And you love Coke. And it’s not a desert island. It’s a cold, tundra island. And you have nail polish. Extraordinarily on-point nails. And yet you’re only allowed to bring a few items.
