I bought a fridge.
I’m not sure if I should feel relieved because it only cost about $600 or if I should feel sick because it cost $600. Do you know how many freelance stories I have to write to pay for this thing?
My old fridge was a white side-by-side with an icemaker and water in the door. The new one is a freezer on top, kind of basic model with no ice or water. Frigidaire calls the color “Silver Mist.” It’s made to look like stainless steel but it’s really the gussied up country cousin.
I didn’t want the icemaker because it takes up too much space and, let’s be honest, it’s just another gadget to break. Besides, I use about six ice cubes a month so it really won’t be missed.
My other appliances are all white but given my luck these days I’m guessing my stove will die any minute now. So this way I can transition into a more modern black or stainless look in my future purchases. I bought the one that best fit the space, that has the largest freezer room and that cost the least to run (It should cost just $48 a year to operate). This little number should suit my needs quite well.
It also was reviewed well online.
Meanwhile I am operating with a dorm size fridge that my dad had in the garage. It’s pretty cramped but I can limp along for six more days when the new is delivered.
I am trying hard to not ask the obvious question but I guess it’s kind of hard to not wonder what’s going to happen next.
