Your house is on fire and you can only save one thing. What is it and why?
Assuming practical things are taken care of, such as my passport and laptop, it would actually be an old lamp. It makes me feel a bit like Steve Martin in "The Jerk" when he loses everything and all he wants is his Thermos, but it's this cheaply carved lamp with a little squirrel on it. I don't know why it's my favorite, but it's got that mid-century Adirondacks aesthetic I've always been obsessed with.
