Hunter/Gatherer

"Do you have any clue of where to look for food?"

I considered my response for a second or too, before voicing it.

"Well, if no one has any better ideas, we can make some fishing nets. I think I saw some netting in that boat we came in, and I know if we snap down some saplings, we can use them to keep the net supported. Oh, and I have some matches in my pocket, for if we catch any fish!"

"Wouldn't it be easier to eat coconuts, like that girl over there?" E.Honey gestured vaguely towards where a dark haired girl was conversing with a fair-haired girl. She was right, one of them had a coconut.

I deflated somewhat. "Erm, yeah, sure. Coconuts. But they're not as fun as making fishing nets." My sentence was punctuated by me shuffling the sand with my foot, and looking surly.
