Redneck Fridge

Our fridge quit cooling on Friday afternoon.  The joys of being a homeowner.  A repair man came out today and fixed it (praise Jesus!), but all weekend, we’ve been eating out of a cooler on our back deck since it’s much colder outside.  I wonder what our neighbor thinks. At least our friend the possum seems to be staying away.  We ordered Chinese takeout tonight and, since it’s still going to be a few more hours until our fridge temp is where it should be, we had to make some real sacrifices to make room in our redneck fridge for our Chinese leftovers.

I was just about to complain about how unexpected repairs are really a pain in the arse, but then I thought about people who don’t have the luxury of a fridge, or electricity, or even food.  And that smack to my face puts it all back into perspective.

The crazy thing is, my household is among the richest 1% in the world (although we won’t be once we have children).  Is yours?  An interesting article about the world’s wealth.
