642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 28

I know this is a bit of a downer one, but I think anyone reading this can respond to it and with some great answers.

“What would you run out of the house with if your house caught on fire?”

I think this is such a difficult question.  I’m going to assume in this question that I know that Jay is either safely on his way out the door with me or not home.  The first thing I would grab would be Zoe.  I don’t care if she’s in the room with the fire; I’m not leaving my little Zobo behind.

The next thing I’d want to save is my laptop.  If I can’t get to that, I’d try to grab my external hard drive since it has a lot of things saved on it.  I’d want to laptop or external hard drive for sentimental reasons, since both have a lot of personal things on them.

Finally, I’d grab the scrapbook that I made for Jay when we celebrated our first dating anniversary.  I put weeks of work, sweat, ‘n’ tears into making that scrapbook.  It’s really long and comprehensively covers every single thing we did during our first year of dating, including our very first conversations with each other, back on the old Lost Podcast Proboards forum.  It’s one of my all-time favorite things I’ve ever made.

I know I could get into other things I’d want to save, like some photographs in frames, but all of those things can be replaced or reprinted.  And of course, I’d obviously throw on my favorite pair of shoes to run out of the house in to save those too… 😉

So what would you run out of the house with if it were on fire?  Leave your answers below in the comments section!
