So this may not follow the food theme per say but it is definitely still somewhere in the same category.
Very empty looking fridge you have there. Why isn’t the light on??
I hear you ponder.
Oh yea no big deal. It’s just……….
Our fridge is broken…..AGAIN!!! Oh and it’s not just the fridge part. It’s the freezer too. Cue rapid defrosting.
It’s the second time it’s happened recently. The funny thing is the light being off and the hummmmm being gone isn’t the first thing you notice. Nope, it’s the smell. Food starts to smell preeeeety fast once a fridge dies. But even at that you kinda think;
Ugh someone left something stinky in the fridge.
But then you pour the milk on your breakfast cereal and realise, it’s really not as cold as it should be. Then it all just clicks.
I’ve heard a joke from the stand-up comedian Michael McIntyre about how when we go on holidays we stress making sure everything is switched off. Everything that is except the fridge, because we trust the fridge. Well I no longer trust ours.
We are lucky enough to have a small fridge in our garage allowing us to save the items that can’t go without the fridge. This has led to us trying to use up as much frozen food as possible at each meal, like potato waffles with our fry rather than toast and meat at every meal just because.
My mam can still recall living without a fridge in her early childhood, but how people managed it I can’t even fathom. I’m sitting here hoping ours gets fixed ASAP. I don’t like luke warm ham and cheese on my sandwiches.
