That time I was literally stranded on a desert island

Published in The Ascent on Medium.

This is a hard one to share. I'm afraid omnivores will be like, "Um, big deal," and vegans will be like, "I can't believe I trusted you." I hope the article itself (not just the headline) redeems me with all parties.
