I knew the day was going to be interesting when I walked into the kitchen mid-morning to get a beverage and saw this:
|A gaping hole, where once our magic cold box lived|
I guess it was more what I didn't see. But then I hit the living room and ...
|The magic cold box|
Yeah. Most peculiar. I had no idea why Mom and Dad put it there.
Then these other guys showed up and started talking about how they were going to get it out the front door.
|"I'm a Drill Sergeant. I know how to get things going. Watch this."|
|"Are you going to move that thing outta here, |
or do I need to put an ice-cold nose on the back of your knee?"
I thought that would get things moving.
Did you notice the front door?
They had to take it off the hinges in order to get the magic cold box out. That would be why I was on a leash, and Cam kept Dave company while he napped in the bedroom. Safety first!
The guys then wheeled a new magic cold box in!
Magic cold boxes don't fit through the door from the living room to the kitchen. Please don't get Mom started about that. These guys were very careful and even had a seatbelt for the magic cold box!
|"I have to wear a seatbelt when I go for a ride, too!"|
I made sure they hooked the water up, so we can have ice cubes and stuff, then I watched them slide the magic cold box into place.
|"You're doing a fine, fine job, mister!"|
Before I knew it ...
|The LG is dead! Long live the KitchenAid!|
For the record - our magic cold box was not old. We even posted about it when we got it in '07. The problem? The lights inside stayed ON, even when the doors were shut. How did Mom figure it out? An electric-y smell at first, THEN later that day, she went to get a Stinky Goodness Treat for me ... and the top of my plastic container was HOT!!! The plastic housing around the lightbulbs had melted and there was a huge electrical problem. Not a good thing! So yes, if you're wondering, by asking for a Stinky Goodness Treat, I basically saved us from a major house fire. Make sure your peeps check to make sure everything is COLD when they first open the door to the magic cold box, even the plastic shield around the lightbulbs!
Stinky Goodness Treats for EVERYONE!
