Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home
Your house is on fire . . .
Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Here's the scenario: Your house is on fire, but your entire family is safe, including furry children. The house is going to burn completely before the fire department can arrive. You can go in safely, and grab one thing. What item will you rescue?
Maybe you know right off the bat what you'd save from the burning house, but it's a very difficult decision for me. Do I rescue the two beautiful plates over the mantel that my great-grandmother brought with her from Norway? Do I grab the only photo album I have with pictures from my childhood?
Ahhhh. Wait a minute. I do believe I have figured it out.
I'd save the laptop with all my writing on it. I don't really need photos. Although the Norwegian plates are precious to me, they're not as precious as words.
I'm glad I know what I would do.
Now, how 'bout you? What item will you rescue?
Infinities of love,
Janie Junebug, who eagerly awaits your responses
