Daily Prompt: Burning Down the House

“Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?” –The Daily Post

No matter how many times I’m presented with this question, I always have a hard time selecting just five items to grab. I don’t know what counts and what doesn’t. For instance, my phone is almost always in my pocket. So would I have to grab my phone or should I assume that it is already safe?

I’m going to stick with my dorm room because that’s technically my home right now.

  1. My backpack (filled with binders).
  2. My laptop.
  3. My camera.
  4. My Nook.
  5. My tablet.

Pretty much everything else in my room can be replaced at a fraction of the cost. Anything truly meaningful is most likely back at my family’s house and not with me in my dorm room.

    I have heard this question / subject discussed before, on many occasions. I have never had it directed to me, personally. That being said, the more I think about it, I really do not have a predetermined contingency plan in the back of my mind. Thank you for allowing me the time to think about this.
