Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and your pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?
Yeah, I’m not going back in. I’m clumsy enough when there’s no fire. If everybody is safe, then I’m good. If I went back in, then I would end up being pinned by a falling beam or something and ending up as story material for Grey’s Anatomy. And I mean that in a dying way.
Speaking of that show, I used to watch it. It came out when my first born was chillin’ in my stomach. That’s a terrible time to start a show that’s 99% drama. I was a teacher and my husband worked an afternoon/evening shift as a custodian for the school (because small towns rock and they found him that job so we could have one less stress when we moved to Kansas. I still love you people.) Anyway, he’d come home and I’m be sitting in the chair sobbing.
Husband: “What’s wrong?”
Me: *sobsnorts* “There’s a pole impaling two people and only one will live!”
But anyway, in case you thought I’d go back for my laptop, I have an ugly, orange zip drive that makes a bracelet. It will now be placed right by my glasses so when I do wake up to get my family out of a burning building, I’ll toss on my glasses and zip drive bracelet (remind me to save today!), yell at the kids to get their glasses (SRSLY do you know how expensive it is to keep all 6 of us in glasses?) and then dash to safety.
Also, in real life application, I actually do keep my computer bag by my bed with my laptop, charger, and zip drive in it and my bra on top of that during tornado season. There is no way I want to end up braless on national television. Dirty, fine. Hair messed up, okay. Shoeless, I’m that anyway. But braless? Nope. I couldn’t function if I lost my bra, and I don’t even want to imagine what I’d have to do to get another. I’d end up hunched over with a bag over me in Walmart begging people to lay down big bucks so I could transform from flappy to anchored. That’s Oklahoma Tornado Season 101. Wear a bra to bed. Grab your glasses. Do not tie yourself down to something with a belt.
Fires and tornadoes and life, oh my! I think I answered in a round about way. Happy Monday, ya’ll! Wanna check out what the other bloggers are saving? What would you save?
