Burning Down the House

1 comment

Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

Since last time the house burned down I already rescued some family pictures and my favourite books, this time I’d grab my laptop, my iPad, my handbag with all its contents ( phone, car keys, wallet and personal documentation) my coat (it’s cold out there) and my walker (I can’t walk without it). All these things can fit in the walker’s basket so it would be a fast and easy escape. I have my life in my computer and all I would need to claim to the insurance company after the disaster. With my iPad I’d take pictures and video of the fire as proof. With my handbag and its contents I hope I would be able to find a temporary shelter.
