At Blogher ’11 there was a pretty hilarious reading at the Voices of the Year show about what people saved when their houses caught fire. Noa Gavin’s post is called, “Oh Good. You Saved Your Bullshit”. And you can see it here.
It got me to thinking what I would save if I needed to. And besides my family, pets, and pictures, I honestly can’t think of anything else. Oh, maybe the millions of dollars I keep under the mattress. In cash. Small bills.
I bet as I go on with my day today, I’ll think of one or two other things. But I have somewhere to be.
What would you save if your house caught on fire, and why?
How much money do YOU keep under your mattress in small bills?
While you’re thinking, here’s where you can find all of the Voices of the Year posts. They were wonderful. Jenni Chiu made me pee my pants. Others made me cry my eyes out. Enjoy them all!
