Anything you have worth risking your life over?
alright Earl...enough with the "deep" philosophical questions for the day....PLEASE!! The current "internet generation" can't think that hard all at the same time...(we have TEXTING to do for crying out loud!)
I would only be concerened with getting outta here alive...the only things I TRULY value in this house are some pictures & videos...but the box I have them in is too big & heavy to attempt a rescue...everything else can be replaced...
me, and my two cats. thats it. though i would be sad, I'm kind of a collector, and by collector, I mean pack rat.
my violin and pets
my koa wood surf board. my grandpa carved it for me for my 18th birthday.
In order of importance:

My grandfather's tie clip
My g. grandfather's pocket watch
My g.g. grandmother's painting
My boarding school yearbooks

My Gucci loafers (40th b.day present to myself)
My partner, myself, and my cat......everything else can be replaced.
My Xbox 360, the xbox games plus a whole slew of other stuff that im too lazy too type out
THE BIGGEST FRIGGIN GARDEN HOSE EVER! mwahahaha. That or the handle to the fire suppression system we have.
If I had a dog I would risk my life to save it. A cat? maybe...
Or a child, obviously.
Nothing material though. Thats stupid.
my cats...and whatever else i could get out before losing all my body hair to fire
My kids and my pets.
After making sure my elderly parents were out safely I would grab the photo albums. My private school yearbooks, and if time allowed some clothes to get us thru the coming rough spots.
Is it shallow of me to want to grab our fur coats after I grab clothes? Afterall it is winter here . . .
:lmao: Right you are. :biggrin1: Sometimes I am too lazy to get out of bed and turn on my PC, :redface: so I have Yahoo IM on my cell phone. :tongue: I can keep in touch with the real world that way as well as via texting.
My off-spring and my animals.
The insurance docs are not in a fireproof box but I'd never find the fuckers either so I wouldn't bother trying. Hmmm... perhaps I should buy a fireproof box!
If I could conveniently grab my mobile on the way out the door to phone the fire brigade I would but again - I wouldn't go back in or stop to look for it.
There's plenty of stuff of sentimental value I'd be devastated to lose (paintings from my father, my grandmother's charm bracelet, my grandfather's watch, my teddy bear that I've had since birth :redface but the people those things represent to me would much rather see me alive than burned in a fire trying to save an inanimate object. It'd be more disrespectful to those people to go back in than it would be to let the things burn.
Just stand close to the fire that's raging through the house, that'll keep you warm enough.
You know, Ive never even thought of buying a fireproof box for important things.
Good point, MB.
My Husband and my cat. The rest can burn its insured.
Oh come off it woman! You live in France! The French canonize women who go up in flames. What's better? Being safe and cozy outside or having an express ticket to heaven? :newangel:
Wife, pets, journal, passport, wallet, PC, DS.
In that order, conditional on encumbrance and the conflagration.
