Our Second Fridge
My family immigrated to Canada 12 years ago. Since then, we’ve survived on one tiny fridge. We’d normally eat at different times, but in times of COVID-19, we now spend more time at home and therefore eat together more frequently. My mother quickly orders another fridge against protests from the rest of the family that it’s a waste of money. What does a fridge mean to her? What does it hold? What does she want to fill the second fridge with?
