Burnt Out

Well the other day my house was on fire and I had to retrieve 5 items that  I would take. In the process of thinking about what I would have taken with me there was nothing that I would have gotten. Therefore there is nothing that I chose. But being that this is a different prompt I may as well choose some of my valuable items that I would get if it were really up to god to keep me alive in the process of doing so. 

Things that I wish that I could have taken from the house fire would be all of my drawings. I have an ample amount of drawings that I have stored in a drawer. A lot of those drawings have meaning to them and were drawn for a reason so each one of them are very special to me and would be devastating if they were lost in a house fire.

Something else that I would grab from the fire is a pipe that my dad and his friend found when they were younger. It really doesn’t have meaning to me but its kind of like a gift from the past and it has a story behind it of how they acquired the pipe. Its a really nice pipe made of metal and wood. They was smoking weed from it. haha!

My last and very LAST thing that I wish I would have wanted to save is this plastic yellow bird that I got when I was in elementary school. I’m not too sure on how I got it but I do remember that I was in Head Start when it was given to me by a teacher? You might ask your self whats so special about the bird, well it was made to balance in its beak. So you can put the bird in the edged of a table or on top of a short people that is flat on top and it will balance. Its really cool and have it balancing on the corner of my computer tower right now. 

Those are all the things I would have wished I saved in the house fire. But like I said the other day that If there is a fire than it was just meant to be because everything in life happens for a reason.

House on Fire

If my house was really on fire and my family was safe there really wouldn’t be anything for me to retrieve from the burning flames. I mean I could go in and take my only precious valuable that I’ve had since the age of 4, and that’s  just a stuffed animal that I’ve kept over the years. Anything else would just have to go.

I mean for example, Jeff Hardy from WWE, his house caught on fire and he lost everything that he had and has had to start all over again. If your house catches on fire, then it must have been meant to be because once there is flames all over then its practically over. Now I can see if I was in the house which is what this prompt is referring too than I would just be like screw it and save myself because trying to save an item would make me materialistic.

Where I’m trying to get to now is that if you were to try and save 5 items from a house fire than you are a complete idiot for the simple fact that you have to hold all of that stuff and try to dodge falling embers and flames while trying to save your self and 5 man made items.

So what advice would I give you? Don’t be materialistic.
