A little while ago, Michael D’Agostino, of A Life Examined, brought up the idea of a new blog hop called Question of the Month. He thinks blog readers would like to know a little more about us, the bloggers. So we’re all gathering to show you guys who we are by taking part in the Question of the Month blog hop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here.
This month’s question is: If your house caught on fire, what’s the one thing you’d grab before running out?
There are so many possibilities to this scenario. This is not an easy question to answer even if, maybe, it should be. My first thought was to save my husband, but I don’t really see him needing to be saved. If the house caught fire, I’m sure he’d run out just like me. My next thought was to get my turtle out. I’m pretty sure I’d be permanently damaged emotionally if I escaped a fire and forgot about her. At this point, I should stop, but I know I’m stubborn. If I honestly felt I had any chance of grabbing one more item before heading out the door, I know I’d grab my laptop.
I’d like to think that my cell phone would be on me anyway. I figured my husband probably has something special on this list he’d want to grab, but then we might bump heads, both try to save Betty (the turtle). I guess I should have discussed this with him.
In any case, I know should want my photo albums, my books, my collectables, and the very few genuinely valuable items I own, but I’d know I couldn’t take them all. I’d love to grab my Nikon; it really is my favorite toy followed by my Kindle, but decisions have to be made and lives have to be saved.
Please check out the other participants in this hop and even join in if you’d like.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
