A while back, I’d ordered some puppy stuff from Chewy.com to be delivered in Georgia for Peanut. The Fed-ex guy dropped the box off at the door, and before he could hop back in his truck, I ran out the door to shout Thanks! He was surprised to see me home and, without stopping for a beat, asked me:
Hey, do you have an ice machine?
I replied yes, and wanted to also boast about my dishwasher and oven, but he immediately grabbed an empty Big Gulp from his cupholder, handed it to me (with the straw and lid still attached), and asked if I could fill his cup with ice.
*Suz looks around to see if she’s on a hidden camera show*
It dawned on me then that I’d read on the ‘hood Facebook group that John, our Fed-Ex guy was a beloved staple, so I asked him to come in while I got his ice.
He entered the foyer and spoke to both dogs; we chatted across the room while I filled up his cup.
I handed him
my precious ice filled cup, he thoroughly thanked me, wished me a great day, and departed for his truck. I’m pretty sure he was heading to the neighbor’s house for a ham sandwich.
Who doesn’t want to combine laundry time with wine time?
Ernie, you’ll appreciate this appliance part of my post.
We have fridge space issues at our GA house. We dislike the kitchen fridge; it’s so inefficient space-wise.
My biggest complaint is that I never have space for my white wine. I really needed (ok, wanted) a designated Wine cooler. But, where do I put one? No space was available in the kitchen, mudroom, or pantry. I could easily fit one downstairs on the terrace level, but that was inconvenient for me and we all know I don’t want to be inconvenienced. For a minute I thought about putting one in our home office, just off the bedroom. That would have been very convenient for breakfast mimosas, but let’s be real, it’s too far for happy hour.
I didn’t need a large cooler, just big enough to keep a few bottles cold. You know, for say Tuesday night.
Let me introduce you to my new Tasting Room. Would you like a crisp rose’, a Sauvignon Blanc or perhaps some Tide Pods?
I’m kidding I don’t have Tide Pods, they’re too tempting!
I found this skinny wine fridge online, ordered it from Build.com (where I’ve bought fans, plumbing & lighting fixtures) on Sunday, and it arrived on Tuesday. OF THE SAME WEEK. It holds seven bottles and is only 6″ wide. It’s like my laundry room was waiting for it!
Raise your hand if you’d like to come over and work on some stain treatments AND a glass of vino!
Am I the only one who has invited their delivery guy INTO their home? Am I crazy-crazy or crazy good?
