Burning Down The House

January 30

Burning down the house

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


This is going to be a tricky one. To choose five items out of the many that I own, it’s not an easy task and considering I hardly have any time to think…

Would my wallet and phone already be in my pocket? And my car keys? Because I might need somewhere to spend the night and I don’t think anybody would let me live with them on such short notice.

This is hard; I think I might need a moment.

Should I take my passport? Will it be worth going out of the country whilst my house is on fire? It would be a good escape tactic and let everybody else deal with it. In fact, it might even be worth faking my death here. I always wanted to do that.

Actually, who am I kidding… my passport is pretty much blank and it’s going to stay that way. I just don’t think it is worth losing my passport for. Wow, I don’t think the fire is worth losing my passport for. My whole house might go up in flames but… I don’t want to go through the trouble… of applying for a new passport.

Ok, the first thing on the list is the Passport. I’ll be honest, I left the passport out because I needed it for a some important job thingy and it’s the first thing I saw to my left.

It’s kinda cold outside. I should grab a coat shouldn’t I. Argh, this is so depressing. There’s hardly anything in my life that I really need that’s in my house.

On the bright side, at least that means I’m not materialistic.

Laptop! I need to keep my laptop because my laptop is half of my life.

I guess that’s three… I don’t think I’ve got any time left. I’m just going to grab my Arsenal shirt because it might jinx the season. I can’t see Arsenal burn.

So far on my list is my passport, my coat, my laptop, my Arsenal top… So I need one more…

I got it… Last but not least, it would have to be my phone charger. How can I charge my phone without a charger? Whilst my laptop is half of my life, my other half is my phone so there you have it. That’s my list.

  1. Passport
  2. Coat
  3. Laptop (+charger)
  4. Arsenal Shirt
  5. Phone Charger

Wait till I realise all the shit that I forgot to save…
