Let There Be Light... Bulbs

3/2/2011   Comment on This

refrigerator dead bulbYesterday I was thinking of grabbing a late night snack and I headed to the refrigerator. Some might head for the pantry for their brand of snack like: cookies, chips, crackers, etc... Iím usually more of a cold snacks kinda guy Ė cheese, lunch meat & leftovers.

When I opened the fridge door, the appliance bulb was burned out. Of course everyone who has this happen to them immediately thinks - ďshitĒ - I donít know how to replace this stupid bulb, I donít know what plastic cover thing Iím going to need to unhook, I know Iíll probably break some tab that holds the thing in place trying to figure it out.

Arenít those bulbs supposed to last forever?

So, I shut the door an reopened it Ė maybe the fridge just didnít notice that I opened the door?

Nope Ė still burnt out.

I tried pressing and jiggling the closed door sensors Ė still nothing.

As Iím looking at this unlit food, Iím thinking - this is definitely not looking very appetizing. In fact itís kind of creepy looking like a dark cave with potentially bad things hidden back there in the darkness. It occurred to me that it might be a good idea when youíre dieting to take the bulb out of you fridge to make the food look less inviting. I know I was suddenly not thinking of eating anything from in there.

freezer with lights onI thought about going over to the pantry to see if anything looked good over there. I wasn't in the mood for chips - but you know - I wasn't going to reach into the dark recesses of that fridge and get my hand bitten off.

And then it hit me Ė ďDuh... what was I thinking? What about the freezerĒ

See, that's more like it. The food looks so bright and shiny. It's all "good" and ready to be eaten.

So for now, Iíll just have to stick to a diet of frozen pizza, cream puffs, toaster strudels and Haagan Dazs Bananas Foster Ice Cream until "somebody" figures out how to fix that stupid bulb.

Why is everybody looking at me?
