This may just be the coolest blog I've ever done. So chill out and relax while I tell you about the refrigerator. When I mention, 'the refrigerator', this has absolutely nothing to do with the defensive lineman who played for the Chicago Bears.
I recently replaced my old 'frost-free' fridge with a new frost-free fridge. Try saying 'frost-free fridge' after a frantic fun-filled Friday full of fine friends and one too many bottles of beer. I had to get rid of my last frost-free fridge. I got just a bit tired of defrosting a frost-free fridge. Heck, my kitchen floor was getting so wet from water seeping from under the fridge, I started thinking about that classic song, 'Like a fridge over troubled waters...' Oh well, it's just 'water under the fridge'.
Eventually, after needing a canoe just to get across my kitchen floor, I reckoned it was time to replace my not so frost-free fridge with a shiny new frost-free fridge. I was saddened to say goodbye to my old fridge. It reminded me of that film, 'Heartbreak Fridge'.
I have noted that fridges seem to have a language. My old fridge had its own distinctive form of communication. It would emit strange gurgling and belching sounds. Sometimes it would be the 'fridge of sighs'. Was my fridge trying to tell me something? Did my fridge have some kind of indigestion? Perhaps it was a cry of help. 'Hey, just because you think I'm a frost-free fridge doesn't mean I gonna' cooperate. Now defrost me...you idiot!'
Well, my new refrigerator 'speaks' in a language even more bizarre than the previous. The sounds emanating are similar to that of a squealing pig waiting its turn at the slaughterhouse. Was my new fridge trying to convey a message to me? Maybe the message, if there was one, was just the 'tip of the ice cube'. It could be a case of a 'fridge too far'.
Anyway, despite the weird noises, this fridge has been working very well. This fridge 'runs' efficiently. Indeed, you might call it 'cool runnings'. And before you ask, I did not discover the Jamaican bobsleigh team practising in the freezer section.
You might think that I have either completely lost it, or I am totally bored. You might even think I had nothing to blog about and got desperate to publish something, anything. But, go on, admit it. You too have heard those noises coming from your fridge and thought it sounded like some kind of language. Have another look at the photograph. Overwhelming proof that fridges talk, right? Hey, it's cool. Must go now and put an icepack on my head and chat with 'the talking fridge'. Here's hoping I don't get a frosty response.....
