Reluctant Friday beer blogging

The price of cold beer

She: I had to sell my refrigerator because it wouldn't fit in my trailer.
Me (only half paying attention): Yeah....
She: I could only get me a hunnert dollars for a $1800 refrigerator.
Me (paying more attention): What kind of refrigerator costs $1800?
She: One of those ones that has water comes out the door.
Me: Where did you get it?
She: Rent to own.
Me: Why didn't you just go to Dick Van Dyke and get one?
She: Thems cost too much.
Me: Actually, you can get a really good one for about $500. Maybe less.
She: But they don't have rent to own.
Me: Right. But they do have credit. Can you get credit?
She: No.
Me: Well, just go without a refrigerator for a while. Save a couple months of rent payments, and you'll probably have enough to buy a decent one.
She: Oh, no. I have to have a fridge.
Me: Why? Do you have medication that has to be kept cold?
She: No. My boyfriend has to have cold beer.
Me (losing interest): Ahh....

It's called "priorities". This person certainly has her's in order. Or is really in love.

Oh, and beer blogging should NEVER be done reluctantly.
