My blog hero, Dan Miller (www.planetdan.net) today contemplates what he would try to save if his house were burning down.
I hate stuff like this, because it makes me feel like I should collect all my most precious possessions and put them in a box by the nearest exit, and that's just a crazy way to live.
Also, I'm pretty sure the cats would protest.
Speaking of cats, I actually have a cat exit plan, which is to grab my car keys and as many cats as I can manage (we have 3 official cats and 1 unofficial cat) and throw them in the car so they can't run away. I told Allen about this one night as we were lying in bed - I think if he hadn't been so tired he would have told me I was a giant nut bag; as it was, I just got a "What? Ok" kind of response.
I still think it's a good plan, though.
If you woke up with your house on fire, would you run right outside, or would you try to save anything? What would you save?
