The house is very quiet. All I can hear are birds creaking and chippering outside, and the roar of my refrigerator inside. I need a new refrigerator. This one keeps soda warm, but freezes lettuce. Frozen lettuce does not a popsicle make. It’s like a farming disaster, an early frost, right in the comfort of your own home.
On the other hand, I have new flowers and a new iPhone. Yellow flowers in a blue pitcher. It’s easier to buy flowers than a new refrigerator. They have flowers at Whole Foods, a place where I spend a lot of time and money, especially as I am now feeding my son. And his friends on occasion. I can derive an enormous amount of joy from yellow flowers in a blue pitcher. I can amuse myself taking pictures of yellow flowers in a blue pitcher.
Still doesn’t solve my lettuce problem though. Maybe I could put the lettuce into the wine cooler in the garage? My best friend stored it with me when she moved to Belgium. It’s 8 feet high and 5 feet wide. Do you think that wine and lettuce can happily coexist? I’m thinking yes. Oh, wait. Shape mismatch. Round lettuce, cylindrical bottles. Drat. Back to the drawing board. Off to the refrigerator store. Or else, since it’s Saturday morning, I will keep fooling around with flowers and blue glass and new toys instead.
Have a nice weekend.
