from now on it’s called kitchen day
There’s snow all over the place. Everything is white and shiny, and today is just a quintessential winter Saturday. But it’s different from your every other winter Saturday because we had our new kitchen appliances installed today.
We got a new cooker, hood, and dishwasher. It took us a while to find them, and more than one trip to the appliance store. We were tempted by cheap unholy items, and then brought to our senses by the sight of discounted Zanussi’s. Then we learned those had shortcomings as well – and thus the quest continued through rain and sleet and disappointment, until finally these three arrived at our home.
They are as white and shiny as the snow, only cleaner. When they were placed in the kitchen, a brilliant radiance enveloped the previously shoddy walls and cabinets, making them pure. It’s only fitting that national flags are flying on every flagpole today*. Chaos is reigning in every other room of the house, but the kitchen is now perfect.
I could talk about them more, but now I have a headache, and if I continue, you’ll get one too.
*Well, technically it’s because of Independence Day, but meh – who cares about that old thing.
