I'm a wizard (SOL19 #6)
I’m not very handy. I don’t enjoy trying to fix things that are broken. I don't want to take things apart. I don’t tinker. I just don’t. Until now anyway.
I like a cold beverage. Ice water. Iced Coffee. Iced Tea. Diet Coke with ice. Icy cold LaCroix/Bubly/Spindrift.
Are you noticing a trend? Ice! I love anything that I’m drinking to be icy cold and refreshing.
Recently, something terrible happened at my house. I went to go and fill up my Hydroflask (another blog for another day) with some ice and water before bed. The ice came out of the dispenser, but much slower than usual. After that, each time I visited the ice maker, the same thing happened until… NOTHING.
I informed the tinker-er of the problem. He said he’d get to it. I asked again. Kindly reminded. Nagged. Begged. Nothing.
Apparently an ice cold beverage is not essential to his happiness.
It is to mine though. Incredibly essential.
Enough was enough. I became desperate. I had to tinker.
I would love to explain the steps to you that I tried… but I don’t have the technical freezer jargon down. I will tell you that it involved a metal kabob skewer, and hair dryer, and a can-do attitude.
Not even an hour later.
I am indeed a wizard.
