Why You Need A Mini Fridge
We'll come right out and say it - we don't want to have to get up every time we want a beer. Not just because it makes for a mind-boggling number of trips to the kitchen - we're strongly in favor of any situation where you can bring the beer to the man instead of the man to the beer. We've tried coolers, ice packs, we even built an igloo in the living room once, but let's face it - there's nothing quite like a mini fridge to put your beer proximity concerns to rest.
Still, for some reason we have a little trouble convincing the Liquor Wife to see the brilliance of such an idea. So we've come up with a list of why you absolutely need a small refrigerator (like this sweet Danby mini fridgewe just found at Amazon) in your living room, in case you need to justify your purchase.
- Logic-o-rama - "and I strongly believe having a mini fridge will make our relationship stronger, because we'll be able to spend more time together."
- The Equal Footing Defense - "But you get to have lamps in here, why can't I have a fridge?"
- Get 'Em On Your Side - "...and you can have this little section between here and here to keep whatever you want, as long as it doesn't touch my beer."
- The Old Timer - "You know my gout's acting up again..."
Those are just a few ideas, but you get the picture. Plus, you can offer to cover the fridge with a tablecloth when important teetotalling guests or the police are in your house. Oh, and one final thought - it's much easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Once that sucker's in the house, even the coldest heart will warm to it.
Oh, and if you need to argue features of the fridge, here are the stats on the Danby model:
This deluxe compact fridge is designed to increase storage while saving space. It has a built-in freezer and 4.3-cu. ft. of capacity, and accommodates tight spaces with a recessed handle and reversible hinges. Convenient features include push-button defrost, 4 wire shelves, tall bottle storage and the patented CanStor beverage holder inside the door. 75lbs. Limited manufacturer's warranties: 1-yr on parts and labor; 5-yr. on compressor. Imported. 20-3/4Wx21Dx32-5/8H".
