A break from adoption talk

The following is important advice for anyone that owns a refrigerator:

If you wake up one morning, and notice that the milk in your cereal isn't very cold, and the frozen waffles aren't very frozen, please complete the following checklist before calling a repairman:

1. Check that the refrigerator is plugged in.
2. Check that the fuse/circuit to the refrigerator is not blown.
3. Check that the outlet still works, by plugging in another appliance.
4. Check that the refrigerator's "0n" switch is in the "on" position.

If you have not checked all of these things, you risk paying a repairman $40 for absolutely no good reason.

Big prize for the first person who correctly guesses which of these we failed to do this morning.

No, indeed. Your prize will be mailed shortly. It is the fuse that we used to test all three of the spots labelled "kitchen appliance" in our fuse box.
