In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Burning Down the House.”
Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?
My home is on fire? That figures… now that I no longer live in the house that I had hoped would go up in flames for half a decade or longer. This is why I don’t gamble.
Any who… if my home was on fire, I can only assume that I would be in the shower at that time. Because, convenience has never been a friend of mine.
So, the first item I would grab: A TOWEL!
Do I really need to give an explanation for this one??
The second item I would grab (while holding onto the towel with my other hand) would be: My Makeup Bag
There’s bound to be at least one hot Fireman on the way.
The third item: My cell phone
I’m going to need some way to save the hot Fireman’s number… and a way for him to call me later….
Fourth item: My Journal
With my kind of luck, it would only partially burn and someone would read what was left. That “someone” most likely being the hot Fireman… Then I would have to change my name and leave the country.
And now… my Fifth and final item: My I.D.
I’ll need it to get shitfaced at the bar later. After I realize that I didn’t grab anything of importance during the fire and that I am now SHOE LESS!!!
