When you’re trapped in the middle of the desert with no hope of rescue, you can’t beat marshmallow peeps, a tall cold Sonic slush (with straw) and a bucket and hammer to while away your final moments.
Peeps get melty in the sun, so simply stretch them around the outside of the bucket, hammering them into a thin, even layer. Carefully peel, then apply them over your head and neck, remembering to poke out eye holes.
Douse yourself in Sonic Blue and pretend the straw is a flute. Play until the ravenous fire ants come. Or death.
Whichever arrives first.

Prompt: You are in a desert. Doesn't matter which one; it's hot and dry. Nothing but sand for miles around. All you have with you are a bucket, a hammer, a straw, a package of marshmallow peeps, and a 44-ounce blue coconut slush from Sonic.
What do you do for entertainment while you're there?
