Having a newborn and a three-year-old at age 61 gives new meaning to "Retired" as in "tired again." However, the laughs keep coming. My hands are full as my friends say, but they are full of laughter and joy and even fuller because the newborn is ten and the three-year-old is thirteen. firstname.lastname@example.org
What is it about appliances that when one dies, the others join in? Do they have some kind of electromagnetic suicide pack that they all agree to in the factory? Are they mechanically joined at the plug at birth so that when one goes, the other follows? Is there a master engineer/financial mass controller that manipulates each appliance so that just as income marginally exceeds the outgo, another appliance bites the dust?
