The joy that is bum warmers

My blog has lost its way. I'm terribly sorry about that. I created it in an attempt to include everyone in on my way of seeing the world. Little random moments of intrigue in the sounds that the mustard bottle makes. The way light glints off the oil slick pooling under my garbage can. The hum of a real copper penny when you flip it in the air. I have been sidetracked by my incessant complaints about work. That's not what this blog is about. It is about me dang it, not my job. It is supposed to be funny and inspirational...mostly funny. It also needs more pictures.

One of my favorite blogs uses pictures from paint and I got to thinking, "Hey. I don't have any of that fancy computer software. I used paint to make my business logo which ain't half bad. I should try my hand at that."

I don't expect my blog to be nearly as popular, amazing, or beartastic as hers, but I want it to be a little goofier. It's time to take myself and my job a little less seriously. It's time to talk about bum warmers.

There are many inventions I care deeply about. Toilet paper is one. The alternatives were not pretty.
Insulation is another great invention. I love being warm. I do not like the cold. I am thankful that there are things that keep the cold out. Nasty, icky, worthless cold. That is why I live in St George. We rarely see the Devil's Dandruff (snow) here and I like it that way.

But, whoever invented the car seat bum warmer is my hero. My bum warmers heat up faster than my regular heater which likes to blow frosty air at me for several minutes before coming close to warm. My seat starts radiating heat within a minute or two, like someone just swung the summer sun around to my backside, beach air rolling across my seat, the ocean waves crashing in the background. I love my bum warmers. They make me warm and happy. They are like little hugs from my car.
My dog likes to ride in the car. He is also somewhat obsessed with me and wants to be on my lap the whole time. I don't allow him to, so he hovers right next to my lap. This happens to be right on the bum warmer buttons. Not a big deal in Fall, Winter, or even Spring, but in the middle of Summer it becomes a nightmare. St George turns into an fiery oven full of hair dryers during the summer. It gets hot, very hot. My dog sets off the bum warmer without me noticing and ten minutes later I realize something is wrong. By then, it is too late. The hugs are replaced with mauling fire lemurs of death.
I am on fire, melting with the onslaught of flame. My body tries desperately to stop the heat. Let's look at the physical reaction:
Sweat breaks out and begins to pour down my back in growing rivers and streams in a fruitless attempt to put out the flames that have erupted below.
Why is this fruitless? Because, despite the feeling of heat, there is no actual flame.
So the sweat converges and collects until you have a nice amount of warm water pooling where warm water should not pool unless you are here:
So, even the best inventions have their flaws. With such a wonderful thing as bum warmers we must all be responsible and remain vigilant against their misuse. There are few things worse than bum sweat.

I hope you like where my blog is headed. Sorry for the bum cracks, but I'm a thirteen year old inside and can't help it. Thanks for reading. Love you all.

I absolutely love car seat but warmers!! My car, sadly, does not have them so I jump in any car I can that does. They are a great invention!

When it gets to warm, you can turn it down.

Love the drawings.

Your dog sets off the bum warmers on purpose because you won't let him sit on your lap!! :-P

Thanks all. I know Pam. He is vindictive that way.

Good work. You did quite a few drawings. I can never do more than one because they are too hard and take too long and never look right.

Awesome! This just made a very long day (it's still not over, I'm just taking a break) a bit more bearable. Plus it confused everyone else here since I was laughing heartily while I read. Thank you for being that person.

You are too funny Chuck!

ME said...

Funny Charlie... and very true. That use to happen to me in my car that had black leather, which in St. George was a nightmare in itself, but it was horrid.
I believe the term for the pool of sweat that collects where it is not suppose to is "swass".

Johnny Utah said...

You need to post more frequently!

Charlie Pulsipher said...

I agree Johnny.
