Spoiled

To get the particular package I wanted when I bought my Beatle five years ago, the car came with heated seats. I didn’t care about the heated seats; I wanted the particular windshield wiper feature or something bizarre like that. I have already forgotten the desired feature. Instead, I rapidly became a fan of heated seats. When you back is sore, it’s a kind of muscle relaxer. When your hands are cold, you can alternate sitting hands while driving. When you want to pull a prank on a friend, you can give them a hot seat. The applications are endless! Within a year I had made a vow to never again own a car that didn’t have heated seats. Within three years I was trying to talk my mom into using my car for our running-around-town days to keep access to the heated seats. She wasn’t swayed. I complain to this day. I complained last Saturday, in fact.

But today I think I finally reached some sort of spoiled-by-the-heated seats milestone.

Returning to my desk from a trip to the records vault I nearly vaulted out of my little leather chair. The whole office is freezing, many of us are in fingertipless gloves and scarves. The chairs truly are cold. So when I sat down and jumped/exclaimed in surprise my first instinct was to try to turn the seat warmer on.

I wonder if I could convince the college to issue me a laptop so that I can work from the parking lot?

lol! Why is it so cold in there? You think the college would have enough cash to provide heat!
But... hmmm... portable bun warmers might be a million dollar idea. YEAH BABY YEAH!

Hmmm... Thuggies....
That's not a bad idea.
We'd just sew some small square pockets to the buttcheek and thigh area of a "Thuggie" as places to stick those air-activated hand warmers things in.

New Tagline "Thuggies! My ass is SMOKIN!"

Looking right at it!
I can't type because I'm laughing too loudly.
That is hands down the BEST tagline I have ever heard.

I'm not sure if you can fine them there... but here we have handwarmers. They are called hothands and Home depot normally has them at the front. They are single use handwarmers that only warm when you open the plastic package. We carry them in the vehicles in case we have to do something outside in the winter. They are wonderful and last a good long time. It might be cool to keep some in your office. If you can't find them let me know and I can send you some to try.

As to heated seats.... they are wonderful. Specially around here.
