Potential case of Hypothermia of the Gluteus Maximus Region

Ha! Got your attention with that title, didn't I? But it almost rang true for me this morning, and I thought you might enjoy a chuckle at my expense today.

"How, what, when, why?" you may ask...This is something that could only happen to me, really. I'm notorious for having goofy things happen to me. ;)

Yesterday I made a quick stop at our local Dollar General or Family Dollar or whatever it is. I purchased several items, including a bottle of Febreeze.

On the way home, it started smelling REALLY good in the car. I thought, "Hmmm...wonder what that great smell is?" When I checked it out, to my chagrin, the bottle of Febreeze had tipped over on the passenger side seat, and was open. Some of the liquid was still in the plastic bag, but most of it was soaking in to the seat. There wasn't a drop left in the bottle.

I decided to go in to the house and get some paper towels to soak it up with. However, once I got inside, the phone rang and I forgot all about it.

This morning, it was 5:30 a.m. when Robert and I left the house. We ride share when road conditions are iffy, because the van handles poorly on snow or ice. So, Robert was driving, and I plopped down on the passenger seat, and off we went.

Right away I noticed the seat seemed extra cold, but I didn't think too much about it. About a mile down the road, my butt felt like it was going numb. Within a few miles, my pants were soaking wet and I was shivering.

Then, it hit me. The Febreeze! The pool of Febreeze had frozen in the seat and was now turning my butt into a frozen (but very pleasant smelling) popsicle! The initial heat from my butt had unthawed the liquid, but it was still frigid!

So, what was my first act of the day? Blow drying my butt! Oh what fun! That's a sight to behold, let me tell you!

But I bet you the seat of my pants smells better than yours does right now! HA! ;)

Hope that gave you a laugh! ;)

You have me practically peeing myself right now! That is too funny, although I'm sure your butt didn't appreciate it at the time!
