DP Daily Prompt: Wronged Objects

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

If your furniture , appliances, and other inanimate objects at home had feelings and emotions, to which item would you owe the biggest apology?

There is quite a number to choose from, in my opinion the refrigerator is the most used item in my house, we expect it to work 24/7 yet we do not take care of it as we should.

Two days ago my fridge shut itself off, I guess it wanted us to feel its importance, and thought we must know what will happen to us if it’s out of order.

I immediately got rid of a lot of food items to lighten its load, some vegetables inside were rotting, there were a whole bunch of herbs I didn’t know about, they were removed.

I did not want the milk to spoil, my daughter, took out the carton and boiled it to avoid the possibility of rotting.

I also called the repair man to check the appliance, the man came the following day, checked it, his verdict, “there’s nothing wrong with your refrigerator.”

It took eighty four dollars and sixty-nine cents to find out the fridge was fine.

I thought the fact that we removed a lot of things, such as sauces, empty bottles, rotting vegetables, the appliance turned itself on.

The lesson I learned is we cannot take anything for granted even if it’s an inanimate object,I owe my refrigerator the biggest apology!

365 Writing Posts: Five Items

A classic question, revisited, what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?

Five items I consider most important to me are:

1. Food

2. Camera


4. paper

5. blanket

Food: well any living thing needs food,I am no exception , my food is a bit more complicated than the plants and animals.

Animals will eat anything that moves, not true in our case.

Plants: I’m so thankful for them, they provide us shade in the form of trees, there are trees that produce fruits, vegetables. Without trees our land will turn into deserts.

Why will I need a camera, I think  there will be so many varieties of living things, I’d like to capture them in my little equipment.

I did not include pen, it has a shorter life than a  pencil, I opted to carry a pencil and of course paper to write on . I want to make my unwanted stay fascinating, good or bad it will help me write about my experience.

I wished  to include something else in my list of five items, but a voice in me said, “take a blanket, it will keep you warm, in case it’s freezing on the island!”

Above is a list of items I think I’ll need. I’ve given the reason why they’re more important than anything else.
