Otay, so it isn’t an authentic wood-burning fireplace. Actually, let me back up from that even further and say, it doesn’t burn anything. It is more like wall art, but DAYAM, it is good wall art.
I was out on a mission this weekend with a friend and we came across them at Ace Hardware. Who woulda thought? Ace. Fireplaces. They had some that were over the top crazy expensive. This one was around 100KD (which I know , is stupid because I know that money could be put to better use). But I love it. So, in August, when we are all dying from heat, I will be sitting in front of my fake fireplace, with the AC down to sub-zero, thinking of the "snow" outside (which is really toxic dust).
I know I’m just going to sit there and stare at it. Maybe pretend to roast marshmallows. Maybe get a bearskin rug and get neked in front of it…. The possibilities are endless.
Perhapsee it is because I still have a slight fever? Je ne sais pas.
Dudes came and delivered it and installed it for free. I am very happy with the Ace service. They showed up on time, were courteous, well dressed, and spoke English.
Ya know, if I was Kuwaiti and could buy a home here, I would build one with a fireplace. I don’t care if it only gets cold for 2.5 nanoseconds. There is just something homey about a fireplace.
I’ve got one of those fire pits on my terrace. That is good, but I’m afraid I’m going to burn the place down; especially since I have found fake logs that could torch a good part of Rumaithiya.
