Red Alert

We were sitting outside, enjoying the lovely sun and breeze. It truly has been a beautiful early summer. My friend was trying to convince her children that it really WAS time to go home and I was thrilled to be drinking a COLD glass of ICE WATER!**

"Your new fridge is awesome!"

"I agree. Plus, it's CLEAN. That always makes an appliance really gorgeous. I am really excited to review all of the new features and details that this model has."

"Like what?"

"Well, there's the air filter, the water filtration system, the produce freshener and tons of fancy buttons and features that I still have to check out. It's kind of like Whirlpool dropped off a jet plane in my kitchen except that it doesn't fly to Florida when I climb inside and shut the door."

We continued to chat and relax while our kids ran circles around the house when a strange beeping interrupted our conversation. It was loud enough to get my attention, but not annoying enough to be an alarm clock...

"What IS that?"

"It sounds like a timer, or a mild alarm. Do you need to change the batteries on your fire alarms?"

Sure enough, it WAS an alarm. An alarm on my fabulous new Whirlpool fridge that will go off if one of the doors is left ajar. My darling daughter had managed to leave the freezer open after she realized that there was no ice cream to sneak and this brilliant appliance wasn't going to let a single item defrost.
That little red light says "Hey! Your door is open. Just wanted to let you know. And I will never, ever, EVER fly you to Florida, no matter how many times you press me."

Let it be known that I LOVE THIS FEATURE. Many elfin dances of joy will be jigged around my house...

**Let it ALSO be known that I love me some ice water. Crushed, preferably. And brought to me by someone else.

*Disclaimer: I will be reviewing this Whirlpool refrigerator for the next year. Though these posts will be sponsored, all opinions and words will be my own.
