Anthropomorphizing The Refrigerator

Grant McCracken blogs his fridge:

As I performed my study, I begin to think of my fridge as an American town. I have the standard package of things I have eaten for ages. I have relative new comers who have been in place for a decade or so. And I have an immigrant population struggling to find and sustain a place there. This dynamic set is driven by deep cultural convictions that do not change, the advent of trends that came and stayed, and the various but continual gusts of changing fashion. Properly documented, my fridge is an illuminating manuscript, an entire world enameled, ready to tell its story even after it has been carted off to the dump.
