Daily Prompt: Burning Down the House

Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

The first is easy, my pocketbook. There is nothing harder than replacing all the cards lost, or even remembering them all. Also, if my house is burning, I ought to have money to buy a good cup of coffee to see me through.

The other four are all technology related. First my smart phone. How else could I find someone to let me sleep on their couch? The second is my MacBook Air, mainly because I’m still paying it off, and it has all my writing on it. If I lost my writing now, I would probably stop completely and pull back in to my turtle shell. Not a good outcome, and one to be avoided at all costs.

Next I would grab the two biggest, in some sense, repositories of my books, my Nook and my Kindle. Between them I have over 2500 books, and that could keep me out of mischief for a very long time. Both of them are fairly new, and should tide me through any other major catastrophes.

All of this is assuming, as the prompt suggests, that my four cats have been saved. Otherwise I would probably get the easily catchable two out and die searching for the champion hiders.
