Last week our refrigerator died. This is how I felt when the one kitchen appliance I knew how to operate became nonfunctional.
My sister said it was my fault the fridge died, that I killed it with magnets.
Sadly, I proved her wrong because when I removed the magnets, the fridge still didn’t work.
The importance of a refrigerator became crystal clear once we no longer had one. Doing a little online research, I found the most expensive fridge on the market and knew if I had over $40K burning a hole in my pocket and had space to spare, I would probably use that money to buy something else.
We went for a more basic model that only keeps food cold and frozen – I know how to operate it.
If I were planning to spend an exorbitant sum on a kitchen appliance such as a fridge, I would want it to do much more than simply hold food. I’ve given this a lot of thought and have started saving money for a new genius fridge that hasn’t been invented yet. Not only will it keep food cold, it will control a robot that will drive a car, shop, cook, set the table and clean up after every meal.
Now this would be a fridge I couldn’t do without. I’d just have to make sure the robot could teach me how to use it.
May the farce be with you!
