Daily Prompt – Burnt
Remember yesterday, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?
hmmm, what would i be bummed about not bringing?
well, one poster yesterday spoke about bringing her favourite mug, something i didnt even think of. i dont particularly have an overly sentimental attachment to my mugs, but i do love my little metal one my sister bought me last year (2012) when she went to alcatraz; the other is my glow in the dark zombie mug from thinkgeek.com i bought a few years ago when i moved into my first ever flat after the end of my relationship with monkey’s dad. its not necessarily that my life would somehow feel empty without these two items, but i do like ‘em and i do like havin’ my tea in ‘em.
the other thing i wish i had grabbed where my two stuffed dog toys that were my toys as a child that i brought from poland when we moved. they currently sit on a shelf away from monkey’s reach, only because they’re old and kinda fragile; i remember playing with them for hours on end and they’re my only real link to my childhood (other than my family). i love them both.
on the topic of toys, i pray i was smart enough yesterday to simply bundle monkey up with her jessie and woody dolls (from toy story 2); she loves those two little cowpokes and sleeps with them every night. i know she’d be upset if i forgot them, and i’d be even more upset with myself for forgetting them.
other than that, i’m not sure there is anything i’d miss. furniture, pots & pans, clothes….those can all be replaced.
as long as i had my basics covered, with a few extra little tid-bits to keep us warm and occupied, i think we’d be okay to lose all the other stuff.
just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…..
such is life…
