A quick smile

Every so often something random will make me laugh. I’m in Beijing and up in the middle of the night. I just read rules for subway travel: they don’t allow you to bring unsafe items. Makes sense, right? One of the items they list as specifically prohibited is refrigerators. 

I keep forming pictures in my head of wrestling a refrigerator down escalators and stairs in a subway station. I figure they wouldn’t list it specifically unless someone tried to do it at some point…

It’s like a comedy skit where kids torment someone by saying don’t think about purple elephants.
