The Psychology of Inanimate Things

Ice Ice baby

Our ice machine is on the fritz.  It’s been on the fritz for at least a year.  I know, I know, “first world problems”.  It’s true.  But ice is critical to my hydration.  If the water isn’t cold, I don’t drink it.  So an ice machine, a life goal ripened into expectation, is, somehow, important to me. 

Now I try to stay on top of stuck ice cube removal, but this week it seemed to get a cube stuck after every batch of ice.  So I bought some ice at the store and stuck it in the freezer where the ice machine had to stare at it. 

All of a sudden, the ice machine was able to go through an entire evening's ice making without a single stuck ice cube!  It felt the threat of that store bought ice and knew it had better try just a little bit harder. This is the psychology of these inanimate things.
