They Had Been Good Buddies
The Fridge and the Microwave, I mean. They'd been sitting next to each other for years. So when the Fridge gave every indication of giving up the ghost, we euthanized it and replaced it with a new model - and this one was black to match all the other appliances in the parsonage kitchen. Well, all except for the microwave which sits next to the fridge. It remains white. But I think it couldn't handle the pressure of standing out in the crowd and I think it mourned the death of its friend. For when Cindi went to use it this morning, you'll never guess what. Yup. It didn't need to be euthanized. It had given up the ghost all on its own. The very next day after the big black fridge moved into the neighborhood. Cindi told Bekah it was all her fault - she had declared last night how the microwave just didn't go anymore. And so it must have died of a broken heart...
