Another day, another gloomy topic from the Daily Post. What gives? Is there no positivity to be had anymore?
In today’s prompt, we examine the charred remains of what we didn’t rescue from our burning houses yesterday. Yay. I shall tackle this topic with as much enthusiasm and excitement as Ben Stein would, though, cause I’m cool like that.
Okay, lets first start off by recounting what I saved yesterday. I saved my external hard drive, my smart phone, my armor, my wallet, and Blunt Life Coach™. Everything else I own perished in the fire, presumably.
I’ll address the first part of today’s prompt first, because OCD. Most of my belongings are in storage right now since I’m not really living in my own place, so I didn’t really lose all that much. I lost a couple of laptops, a couple of TVs, our bedroom furniture, and an Xbox 360. Oh, and all of our clothes, sheets, and towels. All things that are replaceable with the insurance money we’d receive. Well, provided we’d receive anything. They could find out that BLC™ burned down the house purposefully just to get to me. I don’t trust that guy…
And now to the second part. What, of the things that are left and burnt to a crisp, do I wish I could’ve taken? Well…I honestly can’t think of one thing that I wasn’t able to get out of the house yesterday that can’t be replaced. The furniture can be replaced. The electronics can be replaced. Our clothes can be replaced. The bed sheets and…well, you get the idea. Anything that perished is replaceable.
Kozo, jokingly I think, asked about my fuzzy Yoda. I actually do have an interactive Yoda toy, but he’s not fuzzy. And he’s in storage so he was absent during the hypothetical fire. Thank you for your concern, Kozo, but Master Yoda is safe and sound and still able to make that horrible stew that tastes so…yuck.
So, I guess now that I’ve drawn this out about as long as I can, there really is nothing that I wish I could’ve taken with me.
There were, unfortunately, no outtakes in the making of this post. Unless you count me unsuccessfully looking for a quick YouTube video of Ben Stein dispassionately saying, “Wooow.” But, I couldn’t so, yeah. That really would’ve made the post so much better. Oh well.
Anyhow, after months and months of nothing but horrible news to report, I finally have something positive to report. My wifey got a job finally!! Woot, woot! Congrats, Superbitch!
