My Dear Fridge, today, through the Daily Post Literate For A Day daily prompt, I have the opportunity to let you know how appreciated both you and your freezer are. You’ve been living with us for quite some time now, through all weathers, the hot summers and the very cold.
There’s something I have been meaning to tell you for some time, and there’s no easy way to do this. We will be on the move in the not too distant future and the decision has been made that you and the washing machine will not be going with us. I know this must come as a shock to you, but we’re hoping you can be chilled about it! We are not going to tell the washing machine as he might get in a spin.
I shall miss your happy constitution, the way your little light greets us when we open your door. The half empty tube of Primula cheese that you have nurtured for probably more than two years, sitting quietly at the very back of the top shelf together with the Sarsons pickled onion jar that only contains one onion, but we’ve never had the heart to throw them out. It’s as though they are a permanent fixture.
Your friendly hum that greets us every morning, purring away like a happy cat that’s slept for the past 27 hours. I recently defrosted your ice compartment, and how happy were you? We filled you back up with newly purchased frozen faggots, peas, ice cream and fish fingers and you looked set for another few years of fridge freezering. Alas, it’s not to be, and you cannot believe how sorry we are that you will be heading for that place in the sky where all good appliances go.
Farewell dear fridge, you have been more than a trusted friend and will forever be in our hearts.
