The Glove of Love

Ove Glove

Ron and I were clearing up after dinner recently, and I made the mistake of bending over to put some dishes in the dishwasher. WHACK! I felt a sting on my bottom, then another, then a flurry of them. They weren't especially painful but I did feel some discomfort.

I straightened up, turned around and looked at Ron who had an innocent look on his face and nothing in his hands.

"What did you swat me with?" I asked. It hadn't felt familiar.

"This," he pointed to the gloves that sat on the counter. He had used them to remove his delicious homemade scalloped potatoes from the oven half ah hour earlier. "The Love Glove."

Yeah, I guess that is his way of expressing love, and I'm glad of it. But for those of you who aren't familiar with this handy kitchen aid, did you know that Ove Gloves are made of 86% Nomex, which is a flame resistant material developed by DuPont in the 60's and used by fire fighters the world over. The other 14% is Kevlar. Yes, the stuff used to make body armour!

The glove is soft and flexible, and the non-slip ridges might or might not have added to its effectiveness; I'm not sure. But it's one heavy-duty spanking implement!

From Hermione's Heart

I'm not familiar with the ove glove. Never thought of a glove as a spanking implement before, but wow, one heavy duty spanking implement indeed!

Thanks for sharing :)

Some of my female top friends use gloves to protect their hands. I bet this glove is heavy and stiff.

Another everyday that can be used for spanking:)

Hermione, the LOVE GLOVE, as you found out to your surprise. Can keep the heart warm, the hand warm, and a voluptous bottom warm.

Roz - They're much more flexible than ordinary oven mitts. I love them.

Joey - No, it's actually quite flexible, like a giant cotton glove, but totally heat-proof.

SNP - That room is full of them - unfortunately!

Six - A very versatile accessory.

I have looked at these gloves for a long time but hadn't taken the plunge. Now that they are so versatile I think I will =)

Boy, the kitchen is just fraught with spanking tools, isn't it.

I never thought of the oven glove as a spanking implement. We have one but never use it, maybe that's why.

This just goes to show you, it's never safe to bend over in the kitchen.


Hermione said...

SirQsmib - Welcome! I think you should experiment with them.

Sunnygirl - It's a very dangerous place indeed!

Ronnie - Safer just to keep it out of sight,

Kiki - Very true!

OMG! I have two at home. Mine don't have the grippy stuff, I wonder if that makes a difference.

I used to love my Ov Glove.

Hermione said...

Kaki - We have one with and one without. I'll have to ask Ron to experiment with that.
