You’re at the beach, lounging on your towel, when a glistening object at the water’s edge catches your eye. It’s a bottle — and yes, it contains a message. What does it say?

Damn bottle! There is no way it will travel across the seas with my SOS message. It always comes back right here! to my deserted island. I don’t know how this system always worked for the castaways in the novels I’ve read and the movies I’ve watched when I was a kid. Thanks God I had my GPS and my radio and sent a message before the batteries went dead. I hope the help will come soon. Stupid people do stupid things. I did a lot of them. Sailing solo, sinking my ship here, and wasting my time putting a map of my deserted island in a bottle that refuses to leave me. At least I had fun doing it. What I don’t like is seeing the bottle back again and again.

Daily Prompt: SOS.
