Suppose I had an hour to get me and my mother out of here. Maybe there’s wildfire coming, or maybe some heartless marauders.
In addition to underwear, socks, shoes, and basic clothing, what are the important things that I would gather up in that short period of time I had before the disaster strikes.
My CPU, since everything important is on there. I never have time to back up stuff on disks, and I can always buy a keyboard and monitor.
My cell phone.
My charge cards and our medical cards.
The family photo collage that my mother has hanging on her wall and that she looks at every day.
My mother’s rosary.
The family photo albums.
I would mourn the loss of my books, my bins of yarn and craft supplies, the rest of my clothes, the boxes of memorabilia. But some of that can be replaced, and I can live without the rest.
It’s interesting to me that it’s my CPU that’s most important. It holds just about all the links to the essentials of my life. If there were no electricity to be had, I would be truly lost.
What would you take?
