As for the great flooding fridge, it seems there are two settings. Frozen food or deluge. If I turn the knob up to stop the water, everything ices over. And if I turn the knob down to thaw the freeze, a river runs through it.
If my apartment weren’t breaking down piece by piece, what would I do with my time?
By the way, it is Yom Kippur today. I haven’t observed a Jewish holiday since I was 19. I had a miserable experience on a homestay in England, and it turned me off of organized religion altogether. But, I do think there is something to taking a little time – today or any day – to think about how you can be a better person – a little more patient, a little kinder, a little more giving.
That little could turn out to be a big deal.
