I had lots of stuffed animals as a kid, and I was very attached to each and every one of them. More than once I would lay awake a night wondering how I could save all of them if the house caught on fire. I finally decided I should keep them all in a plastic garbage bag by my bed so I could grab it up when the smoke detector went off.
I was talking with my brother about this recently and he said he’d had the same worries and had thought about using a garbage bag too. (NOTE: we never actually tried our solution out.)
Are we strange, or is this a universal dilemma faced by other kids with stuffed animals?
