    I could probably last longer than most. I don’t know how long that is, because I’ve never had the opportunity to be alone very long. I haven’t ever lived alone, so even having the house to myself overnight is a rare treat. However, my mind works best when I have a stretch of alone time, so I’d probably cope OK for a while.

    I think I’d miss blogging too much – in this confinement could I have internet access with lappie?

    Otherwise I can last for a very long time. There have been times in my life when I have not seen or spoken to another soul for weeks on end.

    I’d probably last a few days, then I’d go completely batty. Then, I’d figure out some sort of routine to keep me sane. The routine would probably include talking aloud to myself. If I could have books and pen and paper, I think I’d do okay in the long run.

    I’ve been thinking about this question. It would all depend on like what Mary asked, if we could have anything “to do.” If I could read or knit or have something to do with my hands, I think I’d be okay. I’m alone more than I’m with people and I enjoy it but I have things to do. I would talk constantly to myself though!! But that’s nothing new!!

    I guess it would depend on what kind of solitary confinement. If I had access to books or something I like to do and it wasn’t just a dark empty room, I could last quit a long time. I would miss my family terribly though so I’m not sure. Good question!!

    I have read Papillon so I would know what to do to stay sane.

    But yeah, I’d have to talk to myself, because I do that all the time anyway.

    I need people so probably not very long. It would also depend of if I had something to do. Just sitting in a cell, I wouldn’t last very long.
