At one time or another, I'm guessing that we have all spent Valentine's Day in the company of everyone's soulmates in solitude, Ben and Jerry. So why shouldn't we leave a bouquet of roses at their domicile, the refrigerator/freezer? Frigidaire thought it was a fine idea in 1964. Today, we might consider extending our appliance-appreciation practice to the microwave, as well—offering a posy for the electronic enabler of Orville Redenbacher, perhaps?
