DP Daily Prompt: Wronged Objects
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!
