A repairman arrived to fix two things in the house: the fridge and something else. I looked in the money drawer but there wasn’t enough to pay him. I examined the back of the fridge while he was doing the other thing. There was a complicated network of valves and tubes, water dripping from different places, some of it falling into an old jam jar, some of it falling onto a patch of floor that had blackened from neglect.
