I hope your just kidding as I would hope no man nor woman would be this concerned to make a decision without consulting their spouse in this situation.
Obeyed? How silly can that be.
And I don't feel sorry for you because you teach people how to treat you.

Maybe you should go scuba diving or do you need permission for that too?

Don't be rolling your eyes at me. You can't get a joke when you read it? Guess I should have added #sarcasm for the comprehension impaired.

I know many of us have read things too literally sometime or another. It's hard to de-cipher what is seen-read vs how it is being said-read. Now me, I can hardly take myself seriously, so how do I expect anyone to believe any thing I say.

I kind of have my eye on the new frig's with French doors. Not that I need a new one right now. I am a little concerned about the bottom freezer. What if I fall in. What if I go freezer diving and can't get up off the floor again. Now that is a real concern. what if the cat jumps in and I don't notice. I already have to double check the dryer before closing the door. Other than that, I think I would like the top half.

Whiska, think of it as kitchen yoga All that bending is good for your back. My cats jump into all kinds of things, but never the freezer. And mine is so full, I couldn't close it with them in it anyway

We once had a cat named Earl who found his way into the freezer. It a good thing I happened to open it up or we'd have had catsicles.

My Fridge craped out recently. Luckily the demo we're doing had a fridge the same size as mine so I scored a new one for free.

Just have to figure out how to get it upstairs. I'm not as young as I used to be.

Reminds me of the time that one of our neighbors had a refrigerator failure, and had a refrigerator wake. It was summer time (grilling weather). All of the meat was partially thawed (still safe), so it was a neighborhood party.

Great idea, Tenspeed, a fridge wake! Thankfully RP had his "outdoor" freezer. There are advantages living in the Great White North in the winter.

Another issue I had once with my freezer, is that too much Ice built up blocking something ( I'm not an expert so I have no idea what it was.

Anyway, repair guy came, explained the problem, sat there with a hair dryer on it for about 15 minutes. $150 later, good as new.

Colorado isn't quite the "Great White North". I know, cause I grew up there, north of St. Paul MN, and also lived 9 years in Montana (I saw 45 below for 3 nights running in 1969, and 30 below every winter I lived there) before moving to the temperate climate of Colorado (I don't think it's been below about -10 in the 43 years I've lived here, and even that is very rare outside of the mountains).

Rick, you really have to let us know how she likes her new fridge when she gets home. That slate color is beatutiful, the best between black and stainless.
