Road Trip Wednesday

Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing – or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

This Week’s Topic:
What would you do to impress the Hunger Game judges?

Sadly, I think the Hunger Games judges would be sorely disappointed in my general skillz set. I’m certainly not an outdoorsy girl (unless you count reading in the sun, which accounts for my kickass tan), and I’m freakishly lacking in speed, balance, precision and any other remotely athletic ability. I can, however, swim (so I’m like Finnick? Awesome!), which could probably work to my advantage, depending on the arena.

My most useful talent, I think, would involve food preparation. I can whip up a decent dinner when my pantry and refrigerator become sparse, so I could probably do pretty well with the wild meat, nuts, berries and root vegetables that might be available during the Games. Of course, I’d need someone to shoot or snare that meat, and then someone else to gut it and clean it, and then one other person to make a fire, but once I’m prepped, I’d definitely be the food girl.

  1. You have me beat on the tanning– I would probably fall victim to fatal sunburn after two days.

    • Yes, a golden tan will come in very handy while people are trying to shoot & stab me, not to mention the wild fires, poisonous plants and deadly insects… they all love a good tan 🙂

  2. I can’t cook at all, so can we create an alliance? I’ll gather/catch the food, you cook? Just promise not to poison me…

  3. LOL. I ❤ that this prompt is building alliances. Cooking would definitely be a helpful skill in the arena.

  4. Love your blog name.
    Great skill– it comes in handy, if not much in HG world, definitely in this one!

  5. I say impress the judges and your fellow tributes with your mad cooking skillz, then poison them all! Muhahaha 😀

  6. Your skill is awesome! I’d need to make a break for that package of Top Ramen.
