I have a new toy, an expensive toy, but I might become dependent on it with time. At the moment it is empty and slowly beginning to get colder. This evening I will fill it with a few frozen items and then I have it – a functioning deep freezer.
It reminds me of a guy in Switzerland. Let us call him Mr. Deepfreeze. His wife’s body was found in the deep freezer in his cellar by her parents. She had been murdered. It quite hit the headlines at the time which was in 1987 and he was naturally arrested for murder, especially as there was a report of him enquiring how to remove blood stains from a mattress. It was then that a journalist took on the case and managed to convince the courts that he was innocent of murder. The court case was mainly based on circumstantial evidence which was not enough for the authorities to keep him in prison. And so after spending some time in prison, he was released and to this day he still is enjoying his freedom and even got married again. Did he do it or not? He never admitted it and no-one could prove it.
But honestly, I only got my freezer to store food and save too many trips to the stores.
