Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?
House is pretty empty, our house looks almost like we’re in the witness relocation program. Not a lot of art or knick knacks or fun junk like that. If I could only grab 5 things, I guess this would be it:
1-My laptop computer. This is where all of my writing, hundreds of pictures and most of my music collection is stored.
2~My special treasure box. This is the box where all the mementos, trinkets, cards, tickets and other stuff that reminds me of Mr. The Cheeky goes. Very important stuff.
3~The box of family photos. This would be photos from when I was growing up. Going through the box and sorting and making copies for the siblings is one of those things I haven’t done yet. It would be a shame for all those pictures to get all toasted.
4~My copy of Mastering The Art Of French Cooking by Julia Child. This book is very, very special to me, and you’ll find out why on February 18th, which not only happens to be my birthday, but it’s also Romantic Monday, so the story of how I got this special book for a birthday gift is perfect for RM!
5~My sewing machine. It’s a workhorse that I’ve had for almost 20 years, but I just don’t think I could part with it. When I got divorced, I left almost everything behind, but not this. I’m not leaving it behind in a fire either.
~ I’m assuming that since he’ll have a free hand, Mr. The Cheeky Diva is also allowed to grab a few things. I’ll let him get the TV’s and whatever else he wants, because this prompt didn’t say HE was limited to 5 things. For safe keeping, he can wrap one of them up in the awesome electric blanky he gave me, because I already got my five things. Don’t tell me this is cheating! He isn’t gonna walk out of that house empty-handed anyway, is he?
