What would you take?

October 25th, 2007

People fleeing their homes in California made me wonder what I would take with me if I had to evacuate in mere moments.

The answer turned out to be pretty easy:

My loved ones.

My dog.

My laptop (which contains all my important papers, viagra sales help records, pictures, and music).

And the few original pieces of art I own.

Everything else could be replaced.

I actually feel pretty good that I could travel so light if I needed to.

How about you?

What would you take if the fire, or tornado, or lava, or Nazis came knocking at your door?

    Do the Nazis knock first?

    Well, when they break down the door it sort of sounds like knocking.

    My 12 year old actually asked me that yesterday. I said I would take my husband and kids, our wedding album, my laptop, my box of mementos of the kids growing up, my glasses, contacts, and contact solution, and enough underwear to keep us clean for at least a week. Oh, and a shotgun, just in case.

    C’mon Chris, everyone knows for zombies you take a shotgun, a machete, a flame-thrower and a copy of The Zombie Survival Guide!
