Your House is Burning! What Do You Save?

April 12, 2012 § Leave a comment

A tumblr blog theburninghouse.com asks the question: ‘If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.’ Contributors then organise a small collection of possessions and upload a photo to the blog, detailing what they’d save. Here are some of my favourites and i’ve included the description for the last one because it’s genius!

‘If my house were burning down I would make sure to grab a slice of pizza from the fridge. The flames might just toast it while on my way out of the impending wreck. And while I sit there on the lawn, watching my lifelong collection of necessities and miscellaneous crap being cremated, at least I got a slice’.
