What The Husband Learned Recently

Our refrigerator died a sudden and violent death on New Year's Eve. I won't tell you that the husband killed it in cold blood because he really did feel badly about it. The damage was irreparable and we found ourselves at Lowe's at 6:00 PM comparing cubic feet and ice maker options while friends were out partying the new year in. We rock that way.

We had this brand new refrigerator for two months when the little light bulb stopped illuminating the interior, so I did what anyone would have done - I marched my little self to the store, bought a pack of bulbs, and screwed one into the socket. I was not a happy camper when that bulb didn't shine. The repairman was called, because the warranty clearly stated that if we had ANY problems they would come fix it. Even if we thought it was a problem and it turned out to be nothing.

Good thing we had that warranty. It even covers stupid housewives who can't figure out how to screw a bulb into a socket the right way. That was the day the husband learned to doublecheck his wife's work before calling the repairman.




Okay, you've laughed long enough. You can stop now.

Why would I laugh at you when that is basically the story of my life?

I say bravo for actually going and getting the bulbs instead of waiting months and using a flashlight!

Yeah yeah. You know I'd do the same thing. Love all your snow, BTW.

Ahem. Are you sure we need to stop laughing? I heard a bit of this story the other day, and I'm still laughing from then ;)

Hey, if he can't change it for you like any good husband would do, then he gets what he gets. BTW, all lightbulbs are changed by me in this household, too.

Not laughing, at least not at you. :)
