Speaking of Blaze....

The fire alarm went off at work today. Thinking it was just a drill I grabbed my purse and left the building with my co-workers. Then the fire trucks drove up - which doesn't happen when its a drill. So do I starting worrying that the building is on fire and if it burns it will cost the county taxpayer money to rebuild it or where I'll be doing my job? No - I worry that I left my binder with the plot and character sheets for my next book inside! I silently told myself that is NOT what I s/b worried about but I couldn't help it.
Fortunately, there was no fire - just a trip on the alarm caused by the city flushing out the system.

Next time though the binder is coming with me!

Have you ever played the game what would you grab if you had 2 minutes to get out of your house? (of course after making sure all humans and pets are accounted for) I'd take my laptop, purse, and any photos I could get at. How about you?


  1. Frankly, I'm not sure I would even know where to begin. Getting the family out would be the important thing for me. After that, it would probably come down to opportunity - whatever was close at hand that seemed important.

  2. Wedding photos and my writing files...
