The Fourth Monday in Lent
“Who works hardest in the house? Mum? Dad? No, the fridge. It’s churning away 24/7. Treat it to a good de-icing to make sure it’s running efficiently.”
Some days, the Carbon Fast’s main purpose in my life is to make me thankful — in this case, thankful that I no longer have a fridge that needs to be manually defrosted. When I lived in NYC, this was one of my least favorite tasks, even though I knew that by letting the ice build up I was making the motor run much harder and sucking up a lot of electricity. Since I am blessedly spared this now, today I’m going to try to cut down on how often I stand in front of the fridge with the door open.
Today’s mitzvah: Does you freezer require a manual defrost? If you defrost today and let me know, I will send you an eCard thank-you!
